4 eggs
1/4 cup liquid, such as milk, tomato juice or broth
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves or herb of your choice
Salt and pepper
1 cup filling of choice
2 teaspoons butter or vegetable oil 

In medium bowl, beat eggs, liquid, thyme, salt and pepper until blended. Add filling and mix well.

Melt butter in 6- to 8-inch nonstick omelet pan or skillet over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture and cook over low to medium heat until eggs are almost set, about 8 to 10 minutes.
