There are a lot of different things you can do with an omelette. You can go as simple, or as over the top and extreme as your imagination can handle. This is a recipe for a basic, awesome, Cheese Omelette, but if you have the desire to get more intense with it, just remember one key rule. If you want it to be cooked, cook it before you throw it in the omelette. That holds true regardless of whether you're adding in onions and peppers, tomatoes, hash browns, steak, or anything else. It won't have the time it needs to cook with the eggs, so cook it first, and add it in when you make your omelette later.

Melt your butter in a skillet over medium heat, and then dump in your egg mixture. Swirl the pan around like a pansy so that your eggs evenly coat the bottom. And also to let people know you may or may not be a pansy. When there's still raw egg on top, but not enough for it to run when you shake the pan, add in your extras. In our case, those are the cheeses, and all but a pinch of the Green Onions. Let the cheese melt slightly, and use a spatula to ease up the edges of the omelette slightly.
