I like to wait to add the cheese until after the eggs have been poured into the hot pan, and have begun to set. This offers the eater a flavor burst with every bite and when making omlelettes for several people, the amount of cheese can be adjusted to individual taste.

I added sugar to make it a bit sweeter, just how I like my eggs. but very good example of a basic omelette recipe
