7. To remove the omelet from the pan without breaking, use a rubber mixing spatula - the kind you use to scrape down a bowl. Use the spatula to carefully lift one side of the omelet up and roll it towards the middle, over the fillings. Holding the top flap in place with the spatula, lift the pan and slide the omelet from the pan onto a plate, folded side first. After the omelet drops onto the pan, use the lip of the pan to fold the remaining side over the top of your omelet.
