    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      **Recommend using 1 whole egg and 1/2 cup store-bought egg whites, to avoid wasting yolks.
    2. 2
      Whisk the egg whites, egg yolk, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.
    3. 3
      Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering.
    4. 4
      Add half of the eggs and stir gently until they just begin to set, 5-10 seconds.
    5. 5
      Gently pull the cooked eggs back from one edge of the skillet and tilt the pan, allowing any uncooked egg to run to the cleared edge of the skillet.
    6. 6
      Repeat this process until the egg on top is mostly set but still moist, 1-2 minutes.
    7. 7
      Remove the pan from the heat, sprinkle with half of the Parmesan cheese, and let it melt partially, about 10 seconds.
    8. 8
      Carefully slide half of the omelet onto a plate and , with a firm grip, tilt the skillet slightly to that the remaining half of the omelet folds over the filling in a half-moon shape and serve.
    9. 9
      Wipe out the skillet with paper towels and repeat with the remaining oil, egg mixture, and Parmesan.
