DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl whisk together eggs, baking powder, cream, green onions, salt and pepper until frothy.
  • Heat an 8-inch skillet over medium heat until your hands feel warm when held about 2-inches above the surface; add in butter and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan evenly.
  • Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet; let set slightly.
  • Using a heat-proof spatula, push eggs from edge towards the center; tilt pan to let egg fill the spaces.
  • Repeat until omelet if JUST set (about 1-2 minutes).
  • Sprinkle the grated cheese down the center of the omelet.
  • Using the same spatula, gently fold the omelet over the cheese.
  • Tilt skillet and slide the filled omelet onto a serving plate (don't worry if you tear the eggs slightly!).
