Step 1: Ingredients

4 eggs

Sprinkle of Salt

Sprinkle of Pepper

1 tablespoon water

Step 3: The Eggs and All

First, dump your eggs into a medium sized bowl. Sprinkle in the salt and pepper, and pour in the tablespoon of water.

Melt butter over medium heat on a nonstick pan.

Beat your eggs thoroughly, about 10 seconds.

Step 4: Add the Butter

Step 5: Cook the Omelette

Pour the egg butter mixture into the heated pan, and let it spread across the pan, and cook for 10 seconds.

Then push a bit of the side of the circle towards the center, and let raw mixture fill it's place. Use a nonstick spatula for this.

Keep going around the circumference of the egg mixture in the pan, pushing towards the center, and letting the uncooked egg slid into its place. Soon you'll have a mostly cooked circle of egg.

Step 6: Pour on the Filling
