Omelet Bar

While I was vacationing this summer in Florida, most mornings we had an Omelet for breakfast. I have made two omelets in my life time. I tried making an omelet in my stainless steel skillet once, but it turned into scrambled eggs. The first time I successfully made an omelet, was when I received a set of non-stick pans. The second time was while I was in Florida visiting my family at the request of my sister. We typically eat breakfast for dinner on Sunday. This past Sunday, I decided to have an omelet bar. The kids were a little hesitant at first. They are two and four. But after a little coercing, they gobbled it up.

Tools:
A small non-stick skillet
A spatula
A ladle

Ingredients:
1 tsp or more butter per omelet
Vegetables, diced (green peppers, green onions, garlic, red onions, jalapenos. mushrooms, asparagus, spinach, potatoes, tomatoes, herbs)
Cooked meats, diced (bacon, sausage, ham)
Eggs, about two to three egg whites or 1 egg plus two egg whites per person

Place the meats and vegetables in different bowls. Heat the skillet on medium heat. In a bowl, whisk the eggs until completely combined. Melt some butter in the skillet. Add the desired herbs, vegetables and/or meats. Cook for a few minutes to soften.

Making Omelets

Pour 1 ladle of egg mixture in the pan. As the egg cooks, lift the sides up while tilting the pan to allow the mixture to accumulate underneath. Once the egg starts to set and thicken, flip the omelet over. Sprinkle with cheese. Cook for a couple of minutes until set. Flip one side over and remove from heat.
