Cooking Notes

This recipe is for one person. If you’re cooking for more than one, just rinse and repeat.

  • You can create your own fillings. Replace cream cheese with shredded cheddar, for example. Or add sautéed mushrooms or garlic.
  • Add a teaspoon of your favorite white wine instead of water when beating your eggs.
  • Omelets are best cooked one at a time and served hot.
  • If you don’t have an omelet pan, a good nonstick skillet or frying pan will do.
  • Omelet Newbies: A two-egg omelet can be tricky to handle. Halve the amount of filling. Instead of 1/2 avocado, use 1/4. Instead of 1 tomato, use 1/2, for example.
  • Whatever salad you don’t use, store in the crisp drawer of the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days
