Cooking With Nathaniel - Cheese Omelette

My friend Janelle from Comfy In the Kitchen suggested that Nathaniel do another cooking blog since he LOVES being in the kitchen so much. So I figured since he's recently mastered the art of scrambled eggs, I'd teach him how to make a cheese omelette.

The photos aren't so great because it was evening when we made these. (We were hankering for a late night snack!) So please ignore the fact that they are grainy.

Note: if you are cooking with a child you should take care of the hot and dangerous steps, and let them help with the easy and safe ones like whisking and adding the cheese. I let him do a bit of the work with the spatula, but I was standing right beside him while he did it.

Cheese Omelette:

2 Tbls olive oil
1 Tbls butter
3 eggs
A pinch each of salt and pepper
1/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese

Heat the olive oil and the butter in a non-stick frying pan.

Whisk three eggs along with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
{As you will see, bed-head is totally acceptable in our kitchen}

Pour the egg mixture into the frying pan.
For the first 30 seconds or so, you will use a spatula to move the egg from the edges toward the center as you can see I have done on the right.
Then you will lift the pan slightly and swivel it so that the egg mixture spreads past that edge and cooks evenly. You might want to do that step about 2-3 times.

When you see that the egg is almost cooked, add the grated cheese and let it continue cooking for about another minute.

The olive oil and butter makes taking the egg out easy, but flipping it in half is a bit tricky.
You'll get the hang of it after a few flips!
