The next best thing to having your own chickens is having a friend with a few too many.
Here’s an omelette-making secret I picked up by watching the pros do it at a buffet brunch: put only the cheese in the middle. Any vegetables or meat should go into the pan first and be cooked or reheated to your satisfaction first. Then drop in the beaten eggs and proceed with standard omelette procedure. When it’s ready to fold in half, put the cheese in. Give it some time on each side to finish cooking and melt the cheese. So much better than having a pile of mixed vegetables and cheese 2 inches high inside plain eggs.
