Cooking the eggs with a touch of butter adds a rich flavor to the omelette.

Ingredients

egg(s)

1 large

egg white(s)

3 large

basil

2 tsp, oregano, dill or any other fresh chopped herbs (plus extra for garnish)

table salt

1 pinch, or to taste

black pepper

1 pinch, or to taste

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

regular butter

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together egg, egg whites, herbs, salt and pepper until fully combined and frothy, 30 seconds-1 minute.
  2. Coat an 8-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add butter. Heat over medium heat until butter melts; swirl pan to distribute butter. Add egg mixture; tilt pan to distribute egg. As eggs solidify, push them gently into center of pan; tilt pan to allow any uncooked eggs to fill open space around edges. Cook until there is no liquid remaining, about 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat slightly; cook until eggs are set, 30 seconds-1 minute. (If you prefer your eggs more fully cooked, cover pan for last minute.)
  3. Loosen omelette edges with a spatula and slide omelette onto a plate; fold over and sprinkle with more herbs.
  4. Serving size: 1 omelette
