Directions

Beat egg whites till frothy.
Add water and salt; continue beating about 1 1/2 minutes or till stiff peaks form.
Beat egg yolks at high speed of electric mixer about 5 minutes or till thick and lemon colored.
Fold egg yolks into egg whites.
To make omelet, in a 10-inch skillet with 1 an ovenproof handle, heat the butter or margarine till a drop of water sizzles in the skillet.
Pour in egg mixture, mounding it slightly higher at the sides.
Cook over low heat, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes or till eggs are puffed and set, and the bottom is golden brown.
Place the skillet in a 325° oven; bake for 10 minutes or till a knife inserted near center comes out clean.
Loosen sides of omelet with a metal spatula.
Make a shallow cut across the omelet, cutting slightly off-center.
Sprinkle alfalfa sprouts across the larger portion of the omelet.
Next sprinkle the Monterey Jack cheese, toasted wal-nuts, halved cherry tomatoes, and sliced ripe olives.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Fold the smaller portion of the omelet over the filling.
Slip omelet onto a warm serving platter.
Top with sour cream or avocado dip.
