Omelets are also one of our favorite make at home items and probably my "signature dish". Although the crockpot and I can make a mean beef roast, I have always loved to cook op a good omelet.
If I can offer a few tips, this is how I do it:
Always whip your eggs together with seasonings you are using (I never add milk) using a fork or a whisk and a glass bowl. You are trying to get some air incorporated into the eggs, whip them up good, it really helps you make nice and fluffy omelets when you cook them.
Use a preheated non stick or well seasoned cast iron pan with a tight fitting, preferably glass lid(lets you watch the top of the omelet as it cooks). Med low to med hi depending on your stove (if the omelet splits when you fold it in half, or the bottom is crunchy, the pan was too hot).
A little butter in the pan and pour in the whipped eggs, put the lid on and watch for the top to get just done, then throw in your pre-warmed additives and top that with cheese. Remove from heat, recover for a minute to get cheese nice and melty then fold and serve.
Sorry if that is just to basic and you all knew that stuff already. But these are tips that I was taught as a youngster when working at a restaurant, and I have passed that info along to un-knowers for a long time:smilewink:
