French Omelet

Directions

  1. In a bowl combine eggs, water, salt, and pepper. Using a fork, beat until combined but not frothy. Coat an unheated 8 - or 10-inch nonstick skillet with flared sides with cooking spray.
  2. Add egg mixture to skillet; cook over medium heat. As eggs set, run a spatula around the edge of the skillet, lifting eggs so uncooked portion flows underneath. When eggs are set but still shiny, remove from heat. Fold omelet in half. Transfer to a warm plate. Makes 1 serving.
  3. Nutrition facts are based on the plain omelet.
