How to Make an Omelet Recipe

How to Make an Omelet

Serves 1

As long as you've got a few eggs, you have the fixings for a simple yet satisfying omelet. Look in your fridge for filling inspiration - bits of cheese, cooked veggies, a little prosciutto or ham.


  • 2 Metropolitan Market Organic or U-Pick Eggs
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 tsp butter, olive or other vegetable oil
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup filling, such as shredded cheese, thinly sliced Prosciutto, chopped ham, smoked salmon, baby spinach, cooked mushrooms or other veggies (See Cook's Tips)


  1. Beat eggs, water, salt and pepper in small bowl until blended.
  2. Heat an 8-inch nonstick omelet pan or skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add butter, swirl, and allow to bubble. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edges. Gently push cooked portions from edges toward the center with heatproof spatula so that uncooked eggs can reach the hot pan surface. Continue cooking, tilting pan and gently moving cooked portions until no visible liquid egg remains. Place filling on one side of the omelet. Fold omelet in half with spatula and slide onto plate. Serve warm.
