Omelette Recipe

One of the first cooking skills I acquired was how to make an omelette. It really isn't hard to make a good omelet. The trick is just to make sure you use the right pan (non-stick or cast iron) and heat it to the right temperature. This omelette recipe is simple, calling only for cheese. But you can certainly get creative, adding any variety of meats, vegetables and cheeses you like to make your omelette unique.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 omelette


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Spray a 10- or 12-inch non-stick or cast iron skillet with a thin coating of cooking spray, and heat over medium heat.

  2. Beat eggs, water, salt and pepper until light and fluffy.

  3. When skillet is hot, pour the egg mixture in.

  4. As the omelette starts to set, lift an edge of the omelette with a spatula and tilt the pan so that the runny, unset portion of the omelette can run underneath and start to set. Repeat on the opposite side.

  5. When the omelette is just about completely set, sprinkle the cheese over half of the omelette. Fold the other half over the cheese half. Slide onto a plate, and serve.
