  1. Melt butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir in mushrooms and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms to plate. Remove frying pan from heat.
  2. In a small bowl, beat egg yolks and milk to blend. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with a dry beater until soft peaks form. Fold yolk mixture into whites.
  3. Return frying pan to medium-high heat. When butter sizzles, pour egg mixture into frying pan. Sprinkle mushrooms and crab meat evenly over the top. Cook until omelette begins to set, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Using a large spatula, fold omelette over, forming a semicircle. Cover frying pan; cook until omelette puffs and is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Slide omelette onto large plate.
