Extra cheesy diner-style omelette

Extra cheesy diner-style omelette

Yield: 4

Some people think that omelettes are light. With the addition of some toast and a light salad though, this hearty omelette could make for a filling supper. It’s a great fix for those empty-fridge-still-need-to-do-the-grocery-shopping nights. Super melty, gooey cheeses (think cheddar, mozzarella and provolone) are the ideal go-to for this kind of diner-style omelette, but feel free to mix it up with whatever cheesy odds and ends you’ve got hidden in the back of your fridge.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • Sliced scallions, to garnish

Instructions

  1. Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add 1/4 cup of the grated cheese to the egg mixture.
  2. In a non-stick pan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the beaten egg mixture. Top with remaining cheese. Cover with a lid and turn heat to low. Cook covered until eggs are set and cheese is melted, about 4 minutes. Remove the lid. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the omelette in half. Carefully slide omelette onto a plate and top with sliced scallions.

Notes

Beat the eggs together with the cheese
