Basic Omelet Recipe
  • In a bowl, lightly whisk together eggs and water. Then, over medium-high heat, melt butter in skillet and pour egg mixture in the pan. Tilt the pan until the bottom surface is completely covered with egg. Using a spatula, lift up the cooked portion of the egg to allow uncooked egg to run to the bottom of the pan.
  • Continue cooking until the top of the egg is no longer wet in appearance and bottom of omelet is light golden brown.
  • Remove pan from heat and slide omelet onto a serving plate.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and fold into the omelet herbs, shredded cheese, salsa, or other favorite combinations.
  • Serve immediately.
Note: Adding a little water when whisking the eggs will make this omelet light and fluffy.
