A quick word about omelets

Different ways of making an omelet

There are three basic ways to make an omelet. When cooking a French omelet the eggs are sirred carefully as the set and then the omelets are folded into thirds. The French use a technique of moving the pan around as the egg sets.

The second way is to blend the ingredients with the egg mixture and then lift the edges of the omelet as it cooks to allow the uncooked egg to flow underneath.

The third way is to layer the ingredients on top of the cooked omelet and then place in the oven for a short period of time to heat toppings and melt any cheese.

Omelet making tips

  • The most important tip for making a good omelet is to cook the eggs over a fairly high heat.
  • You need to continually lift the edges as it cooks to allow uncooked egg to flow to the bottom.
  • Make sure you add herbs and spices to the egg mixture.
  • You can add anything you want to an omelet. Be sure that the ingredients you add blends together well.
  • Depending on the personal taste add water or milk to egg mixture to make omelets light and fluffy.
  • Don't be afraid to use leftover meat or vegetables in your omelet.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment. Cheese, smoked fish, oysters and lobster are delicious in an omelet.
  • Omelets are great for breakfast but they make an excellent lunch or dinner. Served with a salad and bread they make a satisfying, filling meal.

I also love to make omelets and often use leftovers in them. I generally use your second and sometimes third method mentioned when making mine. Thanks for including some good sounding recipes. If there was a delicious button, I would push that but will settle for useful. :-)
