Cooking Method:

4 eggs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4-cup milk
1 tbsp. finely chopped parsley
1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh mint or basil leaves
1/4 cup finely chopped scallions, including 2 inches of the green tops
1/3 cup freshly grated imported Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. butter


In a mixing bowl beat the eggs with the salt and pepper until foamy, using a large fork or whisk. Beat in the milk, parsley, mint, scallions, and cheese until well blended. Taste for seasoning.
In a heavy skillet melt the butter over moderate heat. Pour in the egg mixture and spread it out evenly. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the edges of the omelet begin to get firm. Uncover and run a spatula around the edges to keep it from sticking to the pan.

When the center of the omelet is almost firm, place a plate over the skillet and invert, dropping the omelet onto the plate. Gently slide it back into the pan, cover, and cook a few minutes longer until the underside is lightly browned. Slide out onto a serving plate, cut into wedges, and serve.
