Happy Face Omelet

I love making food that the kids will enjoy. So today a Happy Face Omelet is on the menu. Since most omelets are shaped like half a skillet, it lends itself to the bottom of a face. Once I made this cute omelet, I got requests even from Grandpa.

I've tried many different fillings--onions, peppers, sausage, bacon, avocado, but Grandpa's favorite is
ham and  cheese. Today the happy face had a little surprise. Grandma still likes to play with her food even
when she can't cook with the kids. What do you think?

2 eggs
1 tablespoon water
Salt and pepper to taste
Grated cheddar cheese
Sliced ham or turkey meat


Whip eggs with salt and pepper in a small bowl, using a wire whip or fork. Heat a medium skillet coated with cooking spray. When it is warm enough for a drop of water to dance on the surface, add the egg mixture. Spread the egg until it covers the surface.Sprinkle cheese on top. Lay the meat at the edge of one side (like a tongue sticking out of a mouth).

When the egg is nearly done, flip the other side of the omelet over, not quite half way, so that the tongue is
exposed. When the egg is done lay the omelet on the bottom half of a plate--the tongue sticking out.      Toast a small bagel, butter it, or cover with cream cheese for the eyes!  Now you have a happy face omelet!
