Fresh Herb & Mozzarella Omelet

Tod Dimmick

A breakfast that makes me want to get up in the morning.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1 omelet

2 TB. olive oil
2 large eggs
1/2 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced, or 1/2 cup shredded
1/4 cup finely chopped herbs, such as basil, sage & chives
Salt and pepper

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Carefully pour egg mixture into the skillet, and cook for 1 minute without stirring. Then, using a fork (or a plastic spatula if the skillet is nonstick), loosen eggs around the edges so omelet slides easily. When eggs are almost cooked through, spread cheese and herbs over one half of the eggs and, using the spatula, fold the other side over the herbs. Lift the skillet over the serving plate, and slide omelet out onto the plate. Serve, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
