Cheese Omelette

Cheese Omelette

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper -- if desired
1. Beat eggs in small bowl with fork or wire whisk until yolks and whites are well mixed.

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.

Simple... yet delicious and nutritious. I added Parmesan cheese to make it even more interesting. My son went crazy when he had it. I am sure he will be asking for another really soon.

Was so good. And so easy. My twelve year old can make it by herself! She says it's really yummy and the more cheese the better! Thank you!

Simple but deliciously so. I mix Cheddar cheese and Pepper Jack so I get a little spice. Sometimes also mix a teaspoon of diced mild jalepeno from a can in with the eggs. Good recipe.

I usually fry it with oil and use the normal cheese slices... but I love this even more then usual as the fragrance of butter and cheese melting is yummy. Thanks for recipe!

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!
