Coraline’s cheese omelette
(Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times )

Beat together the eggs, milk and a pinch of salt.


Melt a large pat of butter in a frying pan, coat the pan with it, then pour it into the egg mixture and beat it in.


Pour the mixture into the pan.


Sprinkle grated cheese onto the omelette.


Push the eggs away from the edges of the pan, letting anything liquid cook. Don’t let the bottom of it brown. Fold it in the pan or do the elegant thing where you slip it half onto the plate then let the top half come down on the bottom half. Garnish with fresh parsley or don’t, depending on the finickiness of whoever you are feeding and whether they are scared of parsley.
