All of the above!

Try a sweet one filled with a dollop of your favorite jam, finish it with a spank or two of powdered sugar when it hits the plate!

You can get it out the night before, you can zap it in the microwave, you can saute it in the pan and remove before you add your eggs. Depends on how big the pieces are.

When the egg mixture is just about set, I sprinkle over the raw roughly chopped spinach with the rest of the fillings. By the time the omelet is folded over and set for a minute, the leaves have wilted just right to my liking. Maybe it's me, but it just "seems" healthier to have that green going on, and it tastes great too.

That was my Mama's favorite omelet, Bea. I haven't thought of it in years.

My favourite is mushrooms sautÚd in butter or Spanish omelette with onions and potato. The latter isn't as quick as a French omelette but can be eaten hot or cold so can be made in advance.

A while back I found frozen omelettes in the supermarket which took longer to thaw and reheat in the oven that it would take to made one from stretch!!!

Are ingredients added after the egg has completely set? I'm a newbie at making omelets!

You can add ingredients on half the egg after the egg is set then fold the empty side over on top of the ingredients.

You can add the stuff in with the uncooked egg and cook it all together.

You can cook up some meat and veggies in a skillet then pour beaten eggs on top and cook it all together until partially cooked then add some cheese and pop it under the broiler to finish cooking it and melt the cheese.

Thanks for all the options, Andy. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it. I watched a youtube video of Jacques Pepin making omelets, and it was way too intimidating. I think I'll stick to simplicity for now!
