Servings 1 Person


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon gruyere, monterey, or swiss cheese
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • Melt butter in small, nonstick pan on medium heat
  • Crack your eggs directly into the nonstick pan on medium heat. Add in the milk, salt, and pepper, and immediately whisk in the pan. 
  • Using a nonstick spatula, skirt the edges of the omelet. Keep your eye on the eggs, and when they are just about set turn the heat off. 
  • As the residual heat from the pan finishes the eggs, sprinkle on your cheese and carefully fold your omelet over.
