Basic Omelet Recipe

Basic Omelet

This egg dish is the base for many variations using cheese, mushrooms or any favorite ingredients.

Recipe Ingredients
2 to 3 large eggs, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon to 2 teaspoons water (optional)
1 teaspoon to 2 teaspoons butter (unsalted)
salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions
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. Some advice for preparation--adding a little water when whisking the eggs will make this omelet light and fluffy.
