How To Make Fool Proof Omelette Recipe
Fool Proof Omelette
Omelette was always a cuisine that I watched being made with eagle eyes at hotel buffets. It was something that I used to go to the cafe to purchase and well, being someone that likes to learn her own thing I finally mastered the art to omelette making and figured I can’t be the only one that struggled to learn this method! So, read on to learn how to make a fool proof omelette yourself. You’ve probably been getting it all wrong, yes, some can maser the dish with a pan and no grill, but the best method is to use a grill to finish the dish off. This is quite literally a fool proof omelette recipe and you can add as many, or as little eggs as you like.
Now, I have made an omelette here that has a lot of vegetables inside, but do note, you can literally make omelettes with anything, you can have them plain, you can add cheese, tuna, chicken- basically anything that you like, you can throw in to the omelette. They are suitable for not just breakfast, but also makes a fantastic meal when you are low on supplies and have not got a lot of time to cook up a storm in the kitchen. If I am feeling hungry and trying to avoid buying takeaway food from outside I will make an omelette. My kids also love them, and you can serve them with bread. Or, if you are like me and like to watch your shape, you can eat them alone without the added carbohydrates.
- 5 Eggs
- 1 Bunch of Spinach, Chopped
- 1 Onion, Chopped
- 5 Cherry Tomatoes, Halved
- 1 Small Chilli, Sliced
- Sprinkle of Salt
- Sprinkle of Pepper
So, here in the pictured omelette I used 5 eggs. The basic math of getting an omelette nice and fluffy is to use a food processor and crack the eggs inside, adding a little bit of milk. I never measure the milk added, and it should kind of be like you are just adding a layer of milk to your tea or coffee. Once grinded in the food processor the omelette will be fluffy and display bubbles- that’s the consistency that you need it to be.
In this omelette I have used spinach, tomatoes, chili, salt, and pepper but again you can add anything you like within reason. You need to chop all of the fillings finely, onions always take a little longer to fry and brown so you should add those first to a frying pan with a spot of vegetable oil (Just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan) Then, once the vegetables have started to brown a little you can add the omelette mixture. Fry the omelette for a while until it starts to form a solid texture from the bottom, then, once the bottom has started to stick together and it is a little solid, switch on your grill and put the omelette underneath to complete the process. Make sure to check the omelette carefully as this doesn’t take long. The great thing about eggs is that they don’t take long to cook, they are tasty and well they can mke you look like MasterChef when you have played around a little with your recipes. Once the top is cooked under the grill, remove the omelette and take out a plate to flip it onto, add salt, pepper and any other seasoning that you like and eat!
Tips For Making Easy Omelette
A good tip when removing an omelette from the pan is of course to take a wooden spatula and go around the edges of the pan to make sure that there is nothing stuck to the pan that is going to spoil the dish when you flip it onto the plate. The aim should be to serve omelette like a pie and it should flip nicely in one rounded circle to the plate. You can then slice it into four and split it to share, or, if you are feeling a little peckish, eat the full thing yourself!
So, the next time that you are feeling like omelette, there will be no excuses as you can literally make this stuff yourself at home in your kitchen and not need to splurge out in cafes where it is becoming ridiculously highly priced, and as you will learn yourself when making, is not that difficult to master.
