Recipe Ingredients for Apple, Cheddar and Green Onion Omelet

2 tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 apple, peeled and diced
4 large eggs
2 tbsp heavy cream
1/4 tsp salt
1 ground black pepper
1 green onion, minced
3 oz sharp cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

Recipe Directions for Apple, Cheddar and Green Onion Omelet

  1. Sauté the apple in 1 tbsp unsalted butter until tender-crisp. Set aside.

  2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, 1/4 tsp salt and a few grinds of pepper just until thoroughly blended. Do not overbeat. Add the green onion and whisk gently to combine.

  3. In a nonstick frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat until it foams and the foam begins to subside. Tilt the pan to cover the bottom evenly with butter.

  4. Add the egg mixture to the pan and cook until the eggs have barely begun to set around the edges, about 30 seconds. Using a heatproof spatula, lift the cooked edges and gently push them toward the center, tilting the pan slightly to allow the liquid egg on top to flow underneath, then cook for 30 seconds. Repeat this process two more times. When the eggs are almost completely set but still slightly moist on top, spread the cheddar slices and sautéed apple over half of the omelet.

  5. Using the spatula, fold the untopped half of the omelet over the filled half to create a half-moon shape. Let the omelet cook for 30 seconds more, then slide it onto a warmed serving plate. Cut in half and serve at once.
