Beaten eggs cooked in a hot frying pan until they are set; the omelette can be filled with sweet or savoury ingredients. The inside should remain moist, and whisking the egg whites separating can make a souffléed version.
A Spanish tortilla and Italian frittata are similar, but generally have fillings, and are cooked until they're firm. See "Frittata"; "Herbolace"; "Omelette, Savoy"; "Omelette, Spanish"; "Tansy"
