Choose your omelet fillings. One vegetable and one cheese is the classic combination, but thatís by no means mandatory. Use your imagination- olives, salsa, tofu, anything!
eggs & add salt & pepper
Crack your eggs into the mixing bowl and use the fork to beat them until the whites and yolks are well-blended. Add a pinch of coarse salt and a pinch of black pepper.
If you want your omelet extra-fluffy, add
a tablespoon of water to the mix too.
Place the skillet on your stovetop and turn the burner to medium. Allow it to heat up.
oil or butter
Add one tbsp olive oil or unsalted butter, and swirl it around the skillet until the entire cooking surface is coated.
fillings to skillet, then remove
Add all your fillings, except for cheeses, to the skillet. Allow them to sizzle just for a bit, then remove them from the skillet and set them aside for a moment.
in egg mixture
Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, swirling it around until it is spread evenly.
When the edges of the omelet are solidifying, swirl the pan again to redistribute the uncooked eggs in the center.
fillings & turn down heat
When the edges are turning crisp and pulling away from the skillet, add your fillings and cheese down the center of the omelet so itís separated into thirds, and turn the heat down.
cheese melt & flip
Allow the cheese to melt. Once it has done so, use the spatula to flip each outside third of the omelet over the middle third.
Slide the omelet out of the skillet onto the plate. Itís ready to enjoy.
