This is a beautiful presentation for an omelet. It doesn't look like scrambled eggs! Try with you favorite filling and toppings

This was a delightful Sunday breakfast! It was really easy to make and looked great, all puffed up in my pan. I also turned the grill on at the very end, just to brown the top of the omelet, and served it with salsa. Yummy!
- 6 egg whites
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 6 egg yolks
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- parsley, optional
Directions See How It's Made
- In a large bowl, let egg whites warm to room temperature about 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- On high, beat egg whites with mixer with cream of tartar just until stiff peaks form when beaters are slowly raised.
- In small bowl, using the same beaters, beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored.
- Add salt, pepper, and milk gradually, beat until well combined.
- With a wire whisk or rubber spatula gently fold egg yolk mixture into the egg whites just until combined.
- Slowly heat a 9-10" heavy skillet with heat resistant handle, or an omelet pan.
- (To test temperature sprinkle a little cold water on skillet. Water should sizzle and roll off in drops).
- Add butter and oil; heat until it sizzles briskly-it should not brown.
- Tilt pan to coat side with butter mixture.
- Spread egg mixture evenly in pan; cook over low heat, without stirring, until lightly browned on underside-about 10 minutes.
- Transfer skillet to oven, bake 10-12 minutes or until top seems firm when gently pressed with fingertip.
- To serve, fold omelet in half.
- Turn out onto heated serving platter.
- Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.
