Omelet...My Way

When I'm really hungry in the morning, nothing satisfies me like an omelet. Also perfect for weekend mornings when you get to sleep in and be lazy after breakfast! Of course, you can put anything you like in your omelet, but this is how I like mine. I think the only difficult part to making an omelet is learning how to manuever the pan so that all the egg cooks, yet stays together. I think the only way to get this down pat is to practice it alot. I was so excited when I learned to flip the omelet over in the pan just by using a swift flip of the wrist! But, even if it doesn't look perfect when it's done (and you can see from the picture that mine tore a little too) it's'll still taste great!
What You'll Need:
2 Eggs
1 Tbsp. Butter
Salt & Pepper
Shredded Cheddar
Roasted Red Peppers
Bacon, crumbled (or bacon bits)
(Mushrooms are also great, but I didn't have any)
What You'll Do:
In a bowl, wisk the eggs with some salt and pepper.
Melt the butter in an omelet pan.
Pour the eggs into the pan and let set on the bottom for several seconds. I like to use a rubber spatula to lift and push the eggs around a bit, allowing the uncooked egg on the top to run to the sides and bottom.
Once all the eggs look cooked, put the cheese, bacon, peppers, and capers in a small pile on one side of the omelet.
Fold over the other side on top of the ingredients.
Let cook for a few seconds while the cheese begins to melt and everything gets warm.
Using a quick, swift flip of your wrist, flip the omelet over so that the other side can cook for a few more seconds (or just turn it over with your spatula!)
