Omelet for One
Do omelets seem a bit beyond your cooking comfort zone? While they do take a bit of practice, they taste great no matter your skill level. Try this basic omelet for one recipe then venture out with variations of your own.
- 2 eggs
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon chive, parsley, or another favorite herb (optional)
- Optional add-ins: prepared vegetables, shredded cheese, cooked meat
- Crack eggs in a small bowl
- Add salt, pepper, water, and herbs to bowl and gently stir.
- Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray. (The pan should be hot when you add the cooking spray so that it sizzles.)
- Add egg mixture to skillet and tilt to evenly coat bottom of the pan with eggs.
- Using a spatula, gently start pulling the cooked egg to the center of the pan and let the liquid egg run underneath.
- When the eggs are mostly set but the top is still a little runny, add your filling of choice. Fold the omelet with a spatula and carefully slide it onto a plate.
