2. Heat butter in 8-inch skillet over medium-high heat until butter is hot and sizzling. As butter melts, tilt skillet to coat bottom with butter.
3. Quickly pour eggs into skillet. While rapidly sliding skillet back and forth over heat, quickly stir eggs with a fork to spread them continuously over the bottom of the skillet as they thicken. When they are thickened, let stand over heat a few seconds to lightly brown bottom of omelet. Do not overcook... the omelet will continue to cook after being folded. Sprinkle with cheese.
4. Tilt skillet and run a spatula under edge of omelet, then jerk skillet sharply to loosen omelet from bottom of skillet. Fold portion of omelet nearest you just to center. Allow for a portion of the omelet to slide up side of skillet. Turn omelet onto warm plate, flipping folded portion of omelet over so far side is on bottom. Tuck sides of omelet under if desired. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and additional cheese if desired.
Nothing fancy. Just your fantastic basic cheese omelette. Try it with your favorite cheese or combination of cheeses.

This was really great and super easy, plus I added onions.

If you beat the eggs with a Tablespoon of milk and 2 teaspoons flour, you get a fluffier omelette.

I added chopped ham - just chopped up slices from a lunch meat pack. I'm a super amateur cook - so this was very impressive coming from me. Good tasting recipe!

I put American cheese and two spoons of leftover chili in the middle. I never cook, but my wife said it was great. I agree - I did good!

I make cheese omelets all the time - usually a mixture of Cheddar and Pepper Jack Cheese. It's one of my favorite breakfasts.
