What you'll need:
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp. of whole milk
- 2 tbsp. of butter
- Salt and pepper
- Optional extras such as shredded cheese, onions, peppers, mushrooms, ham, etc.
- Prepare your eggs. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Remove the tiny white thread you'll see in there before mixing. Once that is removed, you can mix the eggs until they are a pale yellow (approximately two minutes or less).
- Prepare your pan. Choose a nonstick pan such as a saute pan or small frying pan. You want something that is big enough to hold the omelette before it is folded, without being too large.
- Mix your ingredients. Add milk to the eggs and add salt and pepper to your taste level. Don't oversalt; less is better than too much. A pinch is fine to start with.
- Melt the butter. Add your butter to a heated pan (high is fine but be careful and turn down the heat to medium once you start cooking) and let it melt but not burn.
- Pour the ingredients. Pour your egg mixture into your pan over the heated butter. Let it set for a minute or two and using a spatula, push in the edges so that the non-cooked egg mixture will flow towards the edges. Repeat this process till most of your egg omelette is almost done. You'll know because the majority of your mixture will not be runny.
- Add optional ingredients. Pour your ingredients into the center of the egg that is flattened into the pan.
- Fold the egg. Once your ingredients sit for a minute, flip one edge of the omelette onto the other side so that the omelette is one piece.
- Transfer to a plate. Carefully transfer the omelette to a plate by letting it slide onto the plate. You may lose some ingredients but just add them to the plate after the omelette is on there.
