You can use pretty much whatever you want, however vegetables and meats need to be cooked before being added to the omelet. I had some bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions leftover that I wanted to use up.

3 eggs
4 Tbsp of milk
Tbsp of butter
a little bit of salt

Cheddar Dill sauce (optional)
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 bag of cheddar cheese
2 Tbsp of butter
1/4 cup of dill
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
squeeze of lemon juice

Step 1

Saute some onion, garlic, and chopped rosemary in butter, until the onions become clear. Add your peppers, and saute until tender, finally add your mushrooms and cook for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.(flipping your veggies and trying to take a pic of it at the same time is harder than it looks)


Step 2

Take three eggs, four Tbsp of milk, a little bit of salt, pepper, oregano, basil, and sugar and whisk together until just starting to froth. Heat up a pan until a drop of water will slowly sizzle, and add a Tbsp of butter. As for your pan, you should have a non-stick, shallow-sided pan. Once the butter has frothed over, add the egg mixture


Step 3

From this point on, you want to keep pushing the outside edge of the omlete inwards, while scraping the liquid towards the outer edge. When most of the liquid has become solid you are ready to add your fillings.


Step 4

Place your fillings on one half of the omelet: cheese first followed by any cold items, followed by your hot items. Allow some of the cheese to border the outer edge.


Step 5

If you want a nice neat closed omelet, don't over stuff it, about a 1/3 cup of filling will do for a 3 egg omelet. Now, I am rather hungry, so I am over stuffing the it. Then I am topping it with a healthy dose of parmesen cheese.


Step 6

Fold the empty half over the halve with the filling. The border cheese should melt and fuse the ends together. Now comes the hard part, either flip the omelet in the pan, or if you feel more comfortable, use a spatula and heat the other side for about 20 seconds. Place on a plate and then top it with the cheddar dill sauce and some green onions.

This looks WONDERFUL!  I like the addition of the Cheddar Dill sauce.  Would the sauce go well with pasta or steamed veggies too?  Thanks!

I was told that adding a tbsp of water to the egg while beating is better than adding milk. Which is better?
