How to Make a Basic Omelet

Omelets are great idea for breakfast but we would certainly eat them for supper too! Change up your veggies and meats to make it your own.  They are easy to make and you should give it a try!

How to Make a Basic Omelet                                                 Printable Recipe

Per person
2 eggs
Splash of milk
Salt and pepper, as desired
1-2 Tablespoons green peppers/onions
Shredded Cheese of your choice
Ham, bacon, sausage, optional (only use if not making a breakfast slam*)

We prefer our veggies soft so we cooks ours first in a little bit of olive oil.   
Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Add in veggies.
In an 8" non-stick saute pan drizzle in a little olive oil or add some butter.  You don't need a lot since it is non-stick but some will help. Use your rubber spatula to lift up on the cooked egg on the side and then
tip the pan so the egg mixture slips in and fills in the hole.
Do this all the way around until the egg is nearly cooked and only slightly wet on top.
Now is the time to decide if you are going to go easy or impress everyone with your skills. You can either slide it out onto a plate, turn your pan upside down over the plate and flip it all. OR.... Do like I do and make sure it is loose (wiggle it back and forth a little) and with a flick of the wrist flip it all!!
 Add cheese to one side.
 Fold over.  The heat from the omelet will melt your cheese.

* This goes great in the Breakfast Slam.
