Step 1: Ingredients
Ingredients: (serves 2):
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.

Step 8: Done!
Serve fresh and warm.
