In small bowl, with mixer at high speed, beat egg yolks with 1/4 cup cold water and salt until very light; carefully fold yolk mixture into beaten whites.
In ovenproof 10-inch skillet over medium-low heat, in hot butter, cook egg mixture three minutes, or until puffy and golden on under side when lifted with a spatula.
Then bake 10 minutes or until golden and top springs back when tapped with finger. Run a spatula around sides to loosen omelet. Make a slit part way across center of omelette; tip skillet and with pancake turner, fold omelette in half; slide onto heated platter.
This recipe is more about technique than ingredients. While cream of tartar helps make it fluffy, it's the beating of the eggs and a watchful eye that really makes a flat, ordinary omelette into a big, puffy, amazing omelette.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank smadere for this recipe.

It is puffier, fluffier and prettier but the taste is the same as a quicker omelette. I'll save this one for when I have special guests. But the added time and dirty dishes is a bit much for everyday omelettes.

Definitely puffy and bigger than when I just use the stove top.

It turned out really pretty like the picture and tasted good, but I don't think the extra time was really worth it. A plain fry pan omelette is just as good, just not as puffy. Good recipe though.
