Tips for Omelet Making‏

I believe if your going to make a great tasting omelet you just have to have the right tools to get the job done. First, buy an omelet pan of very heavy porous metal, either cast iron or cast aluminum, about 1/2 thick, approximately 10 in diameter at the top, curving to about 8 at the bottom.

Before use, rub the inside well with steel wool, wipe out, and season the surface by heating a little cooking oil slowly in the pan. Wipe out with paper towels.
The pan should never be washed. If food sticks, clean thoroughly with steel wool and rinse with vegetable oil. Wipe with paper towels.


It is very important to heat the omelet pan to the correct temperature before putting in the egg mixture. Let the empty pan heat slowly over moderate heat. Do not overheat. Test by rubbing a small lump of firm salt butter on the pan. If it sizzles briskly without discoloring, the pan is ready. If the pan is not hot enough, clean it immediately with a paper towel and continue heating. (Do not allow the butter to remain in the pan while heating.) After use, wipe the pan with paper towels, cool and put away in a dry place.


A scant 1/2 ounce of salt butter is sufficient to cook the omelet. If you want a richer omelet, put tiny pieces of butter in the egg mixture.


The eggs should always be fresh, and water, not milk or cream, should be added to them as this makes a lighter mixture. Do not over beat the egg mixture. Beat only until it is blended with the water and salt and is slightly frothy.


Do not add pepper to the omelets until it is being served as it tends to discolor the eggs. Always warm the serving dish. With these great tips I just gave you it should really help you on your way to making some very tasting omelets.....Happy eating
