- 1/2 cup thinly sliced peeled tart apple
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons butter, divided
- 3 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- Sweetened whipped cream
- In a small nonstick skillet, saute the apple, sugar and cinnamon in 1 tablespoon butter. Remove from skillet and set aside.
- In the same skillet, melt remaining butter over medium-high heat. Whisk the eggs, water, salt and pepper. Add egg mixture to skillet (mixture should set immediately at edges).
- As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, spoon apple mixture on one side; fold other side over filling. Slide omelet onto a plate. Serve with whipped cream.

This recipe lacks a couple of details that are important. First, saying the pan should be "small" is too subjective, especially since the apples and eggs are cooked in the same pan. It's really important to know the exact size pan needed to make this work. And it would also be nice to know approximately how long to cook the apples. Until they're completely soft? Still a little crisp? What? I followed the recipe exactly as written this time, and it wasn't great. But I'll know going forward what changes I'll need to make to make it work better. A little tweak on this recipe would prevent this need for trial-and-error.

Sounds great. Will adapt for my needs by using healthier butter substitute, Splenda and egg beaters. Serve with nonfat cool whip.

Its a sweet surprise in the middle of the omelet. The next time I make it, I will use less butter and one less egg.
