Use fresh eggs. Fresh eggs are more likely to be fluffy and flavorful than older eggs.
Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them until they are well combined. You can add a splash of water or milk to the eggs to make them extra fluffy.
Season the eggs with salt and pepper to taste. You can also add other herbs and spices, such as garlic powder, onion powder, or paprika, if desired.
Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add a small pat of butter or a drizzle of olive oil to the pan.
Pour the egg mixture into the hot pan. Swirl the pan to coat the bottom evenly.
Reduce the heat to low and cook the omelet for 2-3 minutes per side, or until it is cooked through.
Add your desired fillings to the omelet. Some popular fillings include cheese, ham, bacon, vegetables, and herbs.
Once the fillings are added, fold the omelet in half and cook for another minute or so, or until the cheese is melted and the fillings are heated through.
Slide the omelet onto a plate and serve immediately.
