How to keep an omelet from sticking to the pan

Early spring vegetables

The first hint of early spring crops in the garden seemed like a great opportunity to finally learn how to cook an omelet.

Farm omeletI did a little google searching and discovered that my failures in the past --- omelets that stick to the pan and have to be scrambled to finish cooking --- were due to impatience. Sauteing the veggies normally then lowering the heat to medium results in a perfect omelet that can be flipped like a pancake then filled with Egyptian onion greens, bacon, red peppers, shiitakes, broccoli, and arugula. Yum!
