An omelet is made of egg whites for a thinner and healthier taste. You can make omelets with a variety of fillings, including tomatoes, cheese and mushrooms, as well as meats such as pepperoni, salami or ham. The quickest way to cook an omelet is in the microwave. Total cooking time is less than five minutes. If you want to add meat to your omelet, make sure to cook it before you microwave your eggs. Contrary to popular belief, fruit can also be added to an omelet; just add the fruit after the omelet has been cooked and cooled. Less is more when cooking omelets -- add one to three toppings to avoid ripping the eggs apart.
Add 3 egg whites and 2 tbsps. of water to a glass mixing bowl. Whisk well.
Pour eggs into a 9-inch plate. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for two minutes. Add any other choice of toppings to the center of your omelet. Microwave for an additional 30 to 45 seconds.
Add shredded cheese, salt and pepper to taste. Pull up one side of the omelet and fold over to the other side.
