Step 1: Ingredients

Ingredients: (serves 2):

4 eggs

Sprinkle of Salt

Sprinkle of Pepper

1 tablespoon water

1 tablespoon cold cubed butter (optional)

1/4 cup diced ham (optional)

1/4 cup shredded cheese

2 tablespoons diced bell-pepper (optional)

Step 2: Preparation of the Fillings

First, dice your slices of ham into thin little bits.

Then shred your cheese.

And lastly, dice the (frozen, or really cold) butter.

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

Add the cubed butter to the egg mixture, and whip for another 15 seconds on high.

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

Sprinkle the ham, shredded cheese, and optional bell pepper over one half of the egg circle.

Carefully fold the unfilled layer over your fillings, as shown.

Mine got a bit messed up...

Step 7: Put on a Plate

Grasp the handle of the skillet, and flip the omelette out onto a plate to serve.

Step 8: Done!

Serve fresh and warm.
