Prep: 10 min.
Cook: 10 min.
What you need:
1 tsp butter
½ medium apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced or chopped
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp brown or granulated sugar
1 tbsp water
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp shredded Cheddar or Swiss cheese
How to prepare:
Melt butter in 8-inch (20 cm) nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add apple slices; cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Sprinkle cinnamon and 1 tsp (5 mL) sugar over apples. Cook, turning slices frequently, until tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
Whisk eggs, water, and salt in small bowl. Pour over apples in skillet.
As mixture sets around edge of skillet, with spatula, gently lift cooked portions to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath. Poke between a few apple slices to allow uncooked egg to flow to bottom of pan. When egg is almost set on surface, sprinkle cheese over half of omelette. Fold unfilled side of omelette over filling. Cook for a minute, then slide onto serving plate.
