Shake the pan and using a spatula pull in the cooked eggs on the side of the pan towards the center, tilt the pan to allow any uncooked egg to run to the edge of the pan.

Repeat this until the omelette is just beginning to set but still a bit moist on top.

Just about done
Ready for folding and flipping onto the plate

Quickly pull the pan a few times towards you to release the omelette and help the omelette slide down to the end of the skillet to begin folding the omelette.

Grab the skillet handle with your palm facing up. Rest the far edge of the pan on the serving plate and gently top and roll the omelette onto the serving plate.

Use a fork or your fingers to tuck in any edges.

This omelette goes well served with some sweet chili sauce.

Serve immediately.

We like to make these, and other omelets, in a zip-lock bag for camping breakfasts.
