French Omelet
Ingredients
  • 2  eggs
  • 1  tablespoon  water
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  •  dash pepper
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
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.
