8-inch omelet skillet
Before folding omelet, sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar, Monterey Jack or Swiss cheese or 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese.
Cook 2 tablespoons chopped cooked ham, 1 tablespoon finely chopped bell pepper and 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion in the butter about 2 minutes, stirring frequently, before adding eggs.
To warm a plate for serving the omelet, run hot water over the serving plate and dry it thoroughly, just before cooking the omelet.
Omelets cook quickly, so always have your filling ingredients ready before you begin cooking the eggs. The butter should be sizzling before the egg mixture is added.
After loosening the omelet from the skillet, fold portion of omelet nearest you just to center.
Tilt skillet, letting flat unfolded side of omelet slide out onto plate. Flip folded edge of omelet over the flat portion on the plate.
