Recipe: Cheddar Cheese & Green Onion Omelet

2 green (spring) onions

4 large eggs

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

cup shredded aged white Cheddar cheese

Thinly slice green onions, keeping white and tender green parts separate. Set both aside. In a bowl, combine eggs, cup water, the lemon juice, teaspoon salt, and a pinch of pepper. Use a balloon whisk to beat mixture vigorously until color is even.

Place a 10-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat and add butter. When butter has foamed and foam begins to subside, tilt pan to distribute butter evenly. Pour egg mixture though a sieve into the pan. After 30 seconds use the edge of a nonstick spatula to push the cooked edges carefully a little toward the center, while keeping eggs in an even layer. The uncooked eggs will flow toward the edges and the omelet will cook more evenly. Tilt the pan and continue to move cooked portions around the pan as necessary.

When the center of the top is thickened and there is no more standing liquid, about 4 minutes, scatter cheese and white parts of green onions evenly over the omelet. With the spatula, fold half of the omelet over to create a half-circle. Let the omelet cook for 30 seconds longer, then slip out onto a platter. Cut the omelet in half, scatter green onion tops evenly over each portion, and serve at once.

Yield: 2 servings
