What’s this?

The omelet is really the star of the egg-centric breakfast dishes. It can be as simple as you like, featuring just ham and cheddar; or, you can branch out and add various meats, cheeses, and vegetables. It makes for a great dish for both the bachelor looking for a quick and healthy breakfast (or breakfast for dinner), or the dad making some Saturday morning goodness for his family.

While the omelet is often the highlight of any good restaurant breakfast buffet, it can easily be made at home with a little practice. It’s not a complex dish, it just requires a little finesse. Here’s your step-by-step guide on how to make one just like the awesome dudes manning the buffet line.
