This is for all my weight-watching and diabetic friends. It is the way I would normally prepare an omelet for myself. It won't cut it with Rachel Ray, but I can post it to our calorie-conscious groups here, and maybe someone can use it.

How To Make

  • 1
    Spray a non-stick 9-10 inch skillet with cooking spray. Set over (lowish) medium heat.
  • 2
    Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour into pan. Shake pan to prevent sticking. Lift up edges of omelet to allow uncooked eggs to run underneath.
  • 3
    When eggs are partially set, sprinkle in shredded cheese and ham. Keep cooking until eggs are softly set in the middle of the omelet. Sprinkle on the green onions.
  • 4
    Cook 30 more seconds, then fold omelet over by about 1/3. Flip pan to turn out onto plate, folding over the other 1/3, for a rolled omelet effect. Cut in half to serve.

    NOTE: It helps if you cover the pan while it's cooking, as the steam cooks the top of the omelet. But check it every few seconds to prevent scorching or over-cooking.
