    1. 1
      Use a fork to beat together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until blended but not foamy.
    2. 2
      Melt the butter over medium-high heat in a medium non-stick skillet.
    3. 3
      Swirl the butter around in the pan until it stops foaming.
    4. 4
      Pour in the eggs and reduce the heat to medium.
    5. 5
      As the mixture sets, lift the edges of the egg with a spatula and tilt the skillet so uncooked egg flows underneath. Do not stir.
    6. 6
      Continue cooking until the omelet is moist but not runny, about 3 minutes.
    7. 7
      If making a filled omelet, top it with your choice of filling.
    8. 8
      Use a large spatula to loosen the edge of the omelet and fold it in half.
    9. 9
      Slide it onto a plate, top with a few spoonfuls of salsa, if using, and serve.

      The DM says thank you swirlycinnacakes for a delightful lunch - as she wasn't feeling the best but being diabetic she still needs to eat so I thought this would be just the dish for her and she thoroughly enjoyed, made for Name that Ingredient.

      This is great! Nice and simple, just how I like my omelettes. DD and I had this for breakfast yesterday. I used cheddar cheese and skipped the salsa. Yum. Thanks! :)
