Try it at home!
Melt clarified butter in a non-stick pan. Scramble two eggs and add them to a hot pan, season with salt. Using a plastic spatula, start stirring the eggs as soon as they hit the pan. Once about 80% cooked, add your favorite cheese (the team likes chihuahua). Let the rest of the eggs rest under a lid for about two minutes before adding any other toppings (i.e. fresh asparagus, tomatoes, spinach), and then fold the omelet and serve.
