Cheesy Omelet Soufflé

This is not quite a soufflé and not exactly an omelet——in either case, it is a great way to practice your egg-whisking skills.

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
3 large eggs, separated
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. unsalted butter
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. olive oil

1 cup grated cheddar

Instructions: 

1. In small bowl, beat egg yolks with fork and season with salt and pepper.

2. Whisk egg whites using hand or stand mixer until soft but not stiff peaks form.

3. Heat butter and oil in 7-inch omelet pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Using plastic spatula, fold egg yolks into whites, adding half the cheese.
