Directions

Beat eggs with water in small bowl. Stir in seasoning mix or 2 1/2 tsp (12 mL) bulk seasoning mix (see below). Heat an 8 inch (20 cm) non stick skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Add egg mixture. As egg sets at edges, use spatula to gently push cooked portions toward the centre of the skillet; tilt skillet to allow uncooked portions to flow into the empty spaces. When omelette is almost set on the surface but still looks moist, sprinkle tomatoes and cheese over one half. Slip spatula under unfilled side; fold omelette in half. Cook briefly until cheese is melted. Slide omelette onto a plate to serve.
