Omelets are one dish that I never have been good and successful at making. 

However, I did a lot of research on how to make the best omelet and I think this way is the easiest it's going to get. For me at least. There's no flipping involved. Thank the Lord. Because that never turns out well.

Omelets are now a part of my breakfast rotation and I am very happy to finally announce that. I feel accomplished that I've made it this far in life. I think I could die happily and proudly now. 

Anywho, here's the recipe and filling ideas:

(Filling Ideas: Shredded cheese, onions, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, basil, fresh mozzarella, ham, turkey, chicken, steak, black beans, bacon, turkey bacon, sausage, turkey sausage, asparagus, broccoli, brussel sprouts)

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg + 2-3 egg whites (1/3-1/2 cup liquid egg whites)
  • splash of milk
  • veggies
  • cheese
  • meat, if desired
  • salt/pepper
  • Olive oil spray or any nonstick spray

Directions:

  1. Prep all of your chopped and/or sautéed veggies and meat, and shred/get out the cheese before you start cooking the actual omelet.
  2. Whisk your eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  3. Heat a small pan on medium-low. Spray with olive oil spray.
  4. Pour in the eggs. Stir around a little bit with a spatula until you start to see it setting a little bit here and there on the bottom.
  5. Lift up the edges of the eggs around the pan and tilt the pan to let the uncooked eggs go underneath. May start to look a little lumpy. Or not. You may be a natural. I wasn’t.
  6. Let it sit for a minute or so until it looks just a little underdone on top still – it will keep cooking from the heat once you fold everything together.
  7. Add in your fillings in the middle of the omelet. Fold both edges over so they overlap a little bit and kind of resembles a tortilla-like look.
  8. Transfer carefully to a plate. Sometimes this may turn it in to scrambled eggs if you’re not careful. But it’ll still taste fabulous I’m sure :D
  9. Top with anything else you want - Lawry's seasoning salt, salsa, guacamole, avocado, etc.
  10. Serve with fruit and some kind of starch like potatoes or toast, and you've got a perfectly balanced meal!
