The perfect Omelette​

An omelette is a dish made from beaten eggs cooked in a pan and often filled with various ingredients such as cheese, vegetables, or meat. It can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are many different variations of omelettes, such as the classic French omelette, the American-style diner omelette, and the Spanish tortilla.

  1. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and beat them together with a fork or whisk. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the beaten eggs to the skillet.
  3. As the eggs start to set, use a spatula to lift the edges of the omelette and let the uncooked eggs flow to the bottom of the skillet.
  4. Once the eggs are mostly set, add any fillings you desire to one half of the omelette.
  5. Use the spatula to fold the other half of the omelette over the fillings and let cook for an additional minute or two, until the fillings are hot and the eggs are fully cooked.
  6. Use the spatula to carefully slide the omelette onto a plate and serve immediately.
It's important to cook the omelette on medium heat to avoid burning the omelette. Also, use a non-stick skillet to prevent sticking of omelette to the pan and make it easy to flip the omelette.
