The famous omelette, seems so simple when watching a pro swirl around that lovely yellow yolk on a pan… there is certainly a finesse to getting it just right each time. The fluffy, creamy results are an ideal outcome and so worth that extra attention to detail you add to make sure that baby stays whole and doesn’t turn into too-late-in-the-game scrambled eggs. Haven’t we all been there? Yeah… you know.
After much practice and finally finding a perfect pan to make my omelettes in, I can also swirl yolk around in slo-mo like a champ. And only make scrambled eggs when I mean it!
I love making omelettes on weekends. Any veggies I have leftover from all week that need to be used up = omelette filling. Done, it never disappoints. Adding in a little of your favorite spices definitely amps it up more too. So to re-cap, this breakfast is: HEALTHY, DELICIOUS, HELPS YOU NOT WASTE VEGETABLES andddddd is in the shape of a smile for crying out loud. Wining across the board with this one, guys.
So, here are my tips to get it juuuuusssstttt right:
*In my Latin inspired recipe below, I’m using cumin. My special tip here is to try cumin in your eggs… my Mom taught me this and it just tastes so good. I season the egg mixture with it most of the time. Cumin also aids in digestion and serves as an immunity defense against respiratory disorders and the common cold. Coupled with the protein from some fresh farm eggs and you’re on FIRE.
Oh and very importantly, find a great pan. I normally see non-stick Teflon skillets being used for this work, but it’s really not necessary and if you scrape that pan you’re ingesting who knows what. No thanks. As I’ve mentioned before, I stick to stainless steel or cast iron and have 1 non-stick to have on hand but thankfully isn’t made with teflon (always read and research!).
Stainless steel can be tricky for eggs but it’s certainly safe and works perfectly if you can get it right and invest in a high-quality product. Upon trying Wolf Gourmet’s new skillet, I fell in love. Game changer.
Firstly, it’s stunning. Oh HELLO you…
Secondly, it behaves like a non-stick with a little oil and a dream.
Thirdly, you can put it in THE OVEN.
YUP. THE OVEN. I had to put this to the test by making an omelet pizza/open-faced omelet as well… which means I could melt feta on top by using my broiler on low for just a couple of minutes:
OKAY, Sorry for that distraction, but isn’t it SWELL?
