When you think of kids in the kitchen, what do you think every kid should know? I have lots of ideas about this and since May is National Egg Month, I decided the first thing on my list will be omelet making!


  • 3 eggs
  • Salt & Pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese


  1. Beat eggs in a bowl with a fork or whisk. Season beaten eggs with some salt and pepper, if you wish. Heat butter in a non-stick skillet (approximately 8-10″ size) over a medium heat.
  2. When skillet is hot, pour the eggs into skillet. Let eggs cook for about a minute over medium heat or until bottom begins to set. With a heat-resistant rubber spatula, pull an edge of the edge towards the middle, allowing liquid egg to run down to the hot surface of the skillet (tilting pan, if necessary).
  3. When almost no egg liquid is left, place shredded cheese in the middle in a line from one side to the other. Using rubber spatula, carefully fold one side of the omelet over the cheese. Remove skillet from stove and tilt over a plate to beginning sliding omelet out of the skillet, unfolded edge first. As unfolded edge is hitting plate, flip the filled/folded omelet over on top of the previous unfolded edge so that it forms a long rectangle on the plate.
