 Tips and tricks for making your omelet…

How do you make a basic omelet?

  • grab 2 eggs, salt and pepper (I like about 1/2 tsp. of salt and a dash of pepper)
  • In a small bowl, whisk the ingredients vigorously until they are very well mixed 
  • Heat a dab of butter over an iron skillet, pour batter
  • As the eggs cook, push the sides from the edge of the pan to allow the wet egg mixture to fill in the gap and cook evenly
  • Continue pushing edges and tilting the pan until you see no more liquid egg on top
  • Fold omelet over and you are done! 

How long can an omelet sit before serving? 

  • Omelets are best served immediately when they are hot and ready
