1. In small nonstick skillet, melt half of the butter over medium heat; fry onion, green pepper and ham, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables are softened. Scrape into small bowl.

2. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, water, salt and pepper. In same skillet, melt remaining butter over medium-low heat; pour in egg mixture and cook for about 2 minutes or until almost set, tilting pan slightly and using spatula to push cooked egg into centre and allow uncooked egg to flow underneath.

3. Sprinkle with ham mixture and cheese; cover and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until egg is set and cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley (if using).
