Mixture should set immediately at edges. With an inverted pancake turner, carefully push cooked portions at edges toward center so uncooked portions can reach hot pan surface, tilting pan and moving as necessary. Continue until the egg is set and will not flow.
Fill the omelet with 1/2 cup of desired mixture. With a pancake turner, fold omelet in half. Invert onto plate and serve immediately.
You'll need an "inverted pancake turner" for this recipe.

This omelet made my morning. I loved it and my kiddies loved it to. The only problem was that it took me 2 minutes to make and not the 40 seconds that is advertised on the recipe title at the top of the page. So that was a bit of false advertising on your behalf but other than that the omelet was amazing!

Hello... an "inverted pancake turner" is just a regular pancake turner, turned upside down... come on guys...

You don't need an inverted anything, any spat will do; preferably a rubber one.

Hey I'm a beginner, and this looks amazing. But I will use milk instead of water and a spatula instead of the inverted pancake turner... I hope it works!!

None of my local stores sell an "inverted pancake turner." What can I use instead? I'm at a loss!

This was a great recipe! I used milk instead of water though, because water ruins the consistency of the batter. I also used shredded turkey & chicken, cheese, and a little bit of sauteed onion to put inside. It was very filling!

Adding water to an omelet will destroy the texture and "meatless" excellent choice in adding scallions and shredded cheese. by world famous briana dorvailaa

This recipe is overly simple. I'd recommending using milk instead of water and making sure you season the egg mixture with just a little salt and pepper before cooking.
