4 egg yolks (room temperature)
1/4 cup of water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make sure oven is hot. In 9-inch non-stick skillet, heat one tablespoon butter. In mixing bowl, beat egg whites until frothy; add cream of tartar and beat until almost stiff. In second mixing bowl, beat egg yolks with water, salt, and pepper until thick and lemon-colored. Fold egg yolks into egg whites gently. Put mixture into skillet and cook on medium-high for one minute. Bottom of omelet will set and begin to rise. Put skillet in center of oven for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly brown. While omelet is cooking, warm ham and cheese mixture in microwave for 1-1/2 minutes. When omelet is done, remove from oven carefully. Put filling on one half of omelet. Fold other half over top of filling, cutting the back with a sharp knife so omelet won't break. Slide onto serving platter. Sprinkle cheese on top.
