  5. Pour in the egg mixture to the pan letting sit for 10-15 seconds
  6. Pull the eggs from edge of pan to the center of pan using a baking spatula until the eggs begin to set, about 2-3 minutes
  7. Reduce heat to low and cook until set, about 4-5 minutes
  8. Remove from pan and slide onto oven safe plate slightly larger than the size of the omelet  and sprinkle with 1 cup cheese of choice
