I know, I know, who can't make an omelette? But, for beginners it can be a bit daunting.
How many eggs? How hot should the pan be? Or even, how long does it cook for?
Well I decided to do a step by step pictorial, so that even my grandkids can make an omelette.
First you need three eggs, broken in a bowl and whisked with a tablespoon of water and a pinch of salt and pepper. And whisk until there are bubbles.
Next, you want to gather your ingredients you are putting inside or on top of your omelette. For this one omelette, I used 1 smallish ripe tomato, seeded and diced with a pinch of salt and let sit on a paper towel for about 10 minutes.
Next, chop or grate 1/3 of a cup of gruyere cheese.
Next, chop a handful or heaping tablespoon of fresh cilantro. Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the chopped cilantro, but I bet you know how to do that... ; )
Now, you are ready to make the omelette. Place your skillet on a medium setting (I use #6 to start) and toss in 1 tablespoon of butter. Turn down the heat to a #4, so your butter will melt, but not burn.
With your spatula, move the outer edges toward the middle of the pan and tip your skillet to allow the egg mixture run to the outside. Sounds confusing, but it's not hard, really.
