Soufflé Omelet Recipe

4 egg whites, room temperature
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar or lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon butter or vegetable oil

Heat oven to 350°F.

In large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, water and cream of tartar. Beat on high speed until stiff but not dry, just until whites no longer slip when bowl is tilted.

In small mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and salt on high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Gently but thoroughly fold yolks into whites.
