Step 1

N a small bowl whisk together eggs, baking powder, cream, green onions, salt and pepper until frothy.

Step 2

Heat an 8-inch skillet over medium heat until your hands feel warm when held about 2-inches above the surface; add in butter and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan evenly.

Step 3

Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet; let set slightly.

Step 4

Using a heat-proof spatula, push eggs from edge towards the center; tilt pan to let egg fill the spaces.

Step 5

Repeat until omelet is JUST set (about 1-2 minutes).

Step 6

Sprinkle the grated cheese down the center of the omelet.

Step 7

Using the same spatula, gently fold the omelet over the cheese.

Step 8

Tilt skillet and slide the filled omelet onto a serving plate (don’t worry if you tear the eggs slightly).

Who knew this would turn out so well. I guess I don't know all the secrets! We loved these eggs and will make them like this from now on. Excellent results every time!

I love it when a recipe actually works and this did produce a delicious fluffy omelette that I couldn't wait to sink my fork into. We love them and will have them again and again filled with many different fillers for variety.

Tender and fluffy omelette. We loved them with cheese inside and salsa and plain Greek yogurt on top. Yum yum to the tum tum!

The baking powder makes loads of difference! I used 1% milk instead of cream and Pepper Jack cheese instead of cheddar.

Your secret ingredient really works. I always make my omelete base just like your recipe but with 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese added. Then add that bit of baking powder and WOW it really does make a difference. I used white cheddar in the recipe and no whipping cream just milk.. I love your recipes Kitten
