Now...
"Omelets made easy"...
Ingredients:
2 tsp. butter
2 lg. eggs
1/4 c. milk or water (I used water)
1 c. sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2-1 c. shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
dash salt/pepper

Directions:
1) To Saute Mushrooms....Take a frying pan
(I like the slanted side one) Place pan on Med/High
heat & put 1 tsp. butter or margarine.. melt & add
(rinsed & paper towel dried) mushrooms.
SEE BELOW: (2 photos)

2) Sweat Mushrooms...Cook mushrooms for
a few minutes until their have lost some of their
water by "sweating" (They should be soft & shiny)
Don't overcook...Set Aside

1) To Make an Omelet:...Take 2 eggs & beat
with fork (when blended well) add 1/4 c. milk or
water (I used water) & beat until frothy..(The air
inside will make it fluffier)...
SEE BELOW:
2) Heat up pan on Med/High heat & add 1 tsp. butter
or margarine until melted (I pick up the pan and swirl it
around til bottom of pan is covered (so the omelet
won't stick) See Below:

3) Add egg mixture into pan...add salt/pepper

4) After adding the egg mixture...take a pancake type
turner & start "pulling" (the mixture from the middle out)
to make a hole in the middle & keep filling it up with egg
from the sides that are still "runny" until it all starts to
firm up a little...SEE BELOW:

5) Sprinkle 1/4 of cheese over egg mixure....

6) Add sauteed mushrooms & any other veggies
(slices of bell pepper or tomato) to one side of the
omelet & almost the rest of the cheese (save enough
to sprinkle on top of omelet)...SEE BELOW:

7) Take Turner & slide around the edges to make
sure the omelet will turn smoothly & not stick..
Turn the half of the omelet (that doesn't have the
filling on it) over to the other side (to make a half circle)
Sprinkle rest of cheese on top...SEE BELOW:

8) This is an important step: Cover pan with
paper plates or a pan cover & put in microwave...
(DO NOT TURN IT ON!) It's just to trap the
heat in a small area so the cheese will melt on top

9) After a few minutes cheese should be melted
on top


You did it!!! Enjoy.........
