How to make the perfect omelet.

If there is one thing the husband can do exceptionally well, it's breakfast. Specifically breakfasts with eggs involved. He has a special knack for omelets and today that's exactly what I wanted. I thought it would be a nice thing to share with you today.. in case you're not as lucky as to share a kitchen with a top notch breakfast chef.

Step 1: Chop vegetables for the inside. 
I like to use leftovers of whatever we have in the fridge that needs to be eaten. 

Step 2: Mix together a couple of eggs (we did 4 for 2 omelets) 
with a splash of milk (something like 1.5 T per 2 eggs).

Step 3: Pour into a greased pan (cooking spray or butter work) 
that you have allowed to get a little hot.

Step 4: Let that cook. After it starts to thicken up, 
use a spatula to scrape the uncooked egg mixture that gathers on top
towards the corners of the pan, so it all cooks evenly into a relatively flat omelet base. 

Step 5:  The flip. This is the fun part but also the tricky part. I have never attempted this maneuver myself, but R. really has it down to a science. First you loosen up all the edges with the spatula, making sure none of it is sticking to the pan. When it's all loosened up, you give it a good flick of the wrist style flip. 

Unfortunately I wasn't able to capture this moment on film, but trust me.. it's cool.

Step 6: After the flip, start putting your veggies on one half of the omelet. 
And a little cheese never hurt anyone.

Step 7: Fold in half. If necessary, cover for a few minutes to melt cheese.

Step 8: Slide it onto a plate, put any veggies that fell out on top. 
I also like to top mine with some salsa.

 Sometimes R. likes to enjoy his as an 'open-faced' omelet.. these are fun too.

And there you have it.. one of my favorite way to enjoys eggs!
