Omelettes are a delicious way of making a little bit of something, go a long way. Follow these 3 easy steps to master a basic omelette then try adding a little grated cheese, some ham or tomato or a few sliced mushrooms for a café quality meal in minutes.
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp water or milk
- 1 tbsp butter or oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- fillings if desired, grated cheese or chopped ham or cooked mushrooms...
Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk together with the salt and pepper and water. In a frying pan, heat the butter or oil until bubbling hot, but not smoking.
Pour in the egg mixture and use a spatula to push the mixture towards the centre of the pan. Tilt the pan to allow runny egg to fill the spaces you have made. Continue pushing the set egg to the middle and filling the space with runny egg until the mixture is no longer runny. This takes less than a minute.
Fold one side of the omelette over the other and flip or slide the omelette onto the plate.
Once you’ve mastered the basic omelette, add your desired fillings or flavourings before folding the omelette. If you are right handed, add the fillings to the left side and if you are left handed add them to the right side before folding. This makes it easier to turn the omelette out onto the plate looking perfect.
