Ingredients

2
large eggs
2
teaspoons butter or margarine
1/8
teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper
  • 1 In a small bowl, beat the eggs with a fork or wire whisk until yolks and whites are well mixed.
  • 2 In an 8-inch skillet, heat the butter over medium-high heat until hot and sizzling. As butter melts, tilt skillet to coat bottom with butter.
  • 3 Quickly pour the eggs into the skillet. While sliding the skillet back and forth rapidly over the heat, quickly stir the eggs with a fork to spread them continuously over the bottom of the skillet as they thicken. When they are thickened, let stand over the heat a few seconds to lightly brown the bottom. Do not overcook--the omelet will continue to cook after being folded.
  • 4 Tilt the skillet and run a spatula or fork under the edge of the omelet, then jerk the skillet sharply to loosen omelet from bottom of skillet. Add favorite filling, if desired. Fold the portion of the omelet nearest you just to the center. Allow for a portion of the omelet to slide up the side of the skillet. Turn the omelet onto a warm plate, flipping folded portion of omelet over so the far side is on the bottom. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
