Here is a classic every cook should know how to make. If you prefer firmer eggs or if undercooked eggs are a concern, cook the omelet for another minute before adding the cheese. It will get a little brown, but the eggs will be cooked through.
For more tips, watch the Classic French Omelet Video Recipe and learn how to make a perfectly folded cheese omelet.
To turn this breakfast into dinner, start the meal off with a simple green salad.

The only thing you need to add is about a tablespoon of milk or water to the eggs. Otherwise perfect.
