Wondering how to make the perfect omelet? There is more than one way of making omelets. Many different ingredients can be used for the fillings and the possibilities are endless. Use one or more of your favorite foods. Some classic omelet fillings include shredded Cheddar or Gruyere cheese, sour cream, diced ham, crisp bacon, sautéed mushrooms, bell peppers or tomatoes, caramelized onions, fresh herbs, even tasty leftovers from last night’s dinner.

Feeling elegant? Combine broccoli, brie, and toasted almonds. In a south-of-the-border mood? Try corn, salsa, chorizo, and jalapeño cheese.

For a sweet omelet recipe, omit pepper and add a dash of sugar to the egg mixture. Fill with preserves, finely chopped toasted nuts or berries, and dust with powdered sugar. For an elegant touch, spoon a tablespoon of warmed Cognac or Grand Marnier over and flambé.


An easy-to-follow recipe for a tasty omelet ready to be filled with sausage, vegetables, and cheese. Serve the perfect omelet for breakfast in just 10 minutes.

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 10 mins


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp water
  • tsp salt
  • tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter


  1. Beat eggs, water, salt, and pepper in a small bowl until blended.

  2. Heat butter in a 7 to 10-inch nonstick omelet pan or skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Tilt the pan to coat the bottom.

  3. Pour in the egg mixture. The mixture should set immediately at the edges.

  4. Gently push cooked portions from the edges towards the center with an inverted turner so that the uncooked eggs can reach the hot pan surface. Continue cooking, tilting the pan, and gently moving cooked portions as needed.

  5. When the top surface of eggs is thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, place filling on one side of the omelet. Fold the omelet in half with a turner.

  6. With a quick flip of the wrist, turn the pan and invert or slide the omelet onto a plate. Serve immediately.
