- In a medium mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, onions, peppers and cheese. Mix and set aside.
- Crack your eggs into a separate mixing bowl. Add milk, salt and pepper while whisking rapidly. Make sure all the egg whites and yolks thoroughly combine before setting aside.
- Add a tablespoon of butter to a large skillet over medium heat. Tilt the pan to coat the entire surface with butter.
- Once the butter melts entirely, add your egg mixture to the pan. Coat the pan entirely with the egg mixture by turning it slowly.
- Allow the eggs to sit for roughly 30 seconds. At this point, they should still be slightly runny as they begin to form to the shape of the pan. Gently shake the pan from side to side, then add your vegetable filling evenly across the center.
- Allow the egg to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. As the liquid begins to solidify, sprinkle your cheese on top. Skip this step if you don’t want cheese.
- Gently fold the omelet by raising the pan slightly towards yourself. Wedge the spatula under the side of the pan that is farthest from you and fold the egg in half.
- Turn the heat off and allow the egg to sit on the heated stove for an additional 20 to 30 seconds to melt any cheese layered on top.
- Remove the omelet from the skillet and garnish with cilantro and parsley. Serve immediately!
