  • it's at least twice as classy. You will need The fillings of your choice 2 or 3 large eggs

  • A mixing bowl A pinch of coarse salt A pinch of black pepper A nonstick skillet 1.0 tbsp

  • olive oil or unsalted butter A spatula and 1.0 tbsp water. Step 1. Choose your omelet

  • fillings. One vegetable and one cheese is the classic combination, but that's by no

  • means mandatory. Use your imagination- olives, salsa, tofu, anything! Step 2. Crack your

  • eggs into the mixing bowl and use the fork to beat them until the whites and yolks are

  • well-blended. Add a pinch of coarse salt and a pinch of black pepper. If you want your

  • omelet extra-fluffy, add a tablespoon of water to the mix too. Step 3. Place the skillet

  • on your stovetop and turn the burner to medium. Allow it to heat up. Step 4. Add one tbsp

  • olive oil or unsalted butter, and swirl it around the skillet until the entire cooking

  • surface is coated. Step 5. Add all your fillings, except for cheeses, to the skillet. Allow

  • them to sizzle just for a bit, then remove them from the skillet and set them aside for

  • a moment. Step 6. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet, swirling it around until it is

  • spread evenly. Step 7. When the edges of the omelet are solidifying, swirl the pan again

  • to redistribute the uncooked eggs in the center. Step 8. When the edges are turning crisp and

  • pulling away from the skillet, add your fillings and cheese down the center of the omelet so

  • it's separated into thirds, and turn the heat down. Step 9. Allow the cheese to melt. Once

  • it has done so, use the spatula to flip each outside third of the omelet over the middle

  • third. Step 10. Slide the omelet out of the skillet onto the plate. It's ready to enjoy.
