Step 1: Prep the Ingredients
Before you start cooking you need to gather all the ingredients you’ll need. Crack open the eggs into a bowl whisk them until they’re well beaten. Add in any seasoning you like such as salt pepper or herbs.
Then chop up any fillings you want to add to the omelette such as vegetables meats or cheeses. Make sure they’re all cut into small bite-sized pieces so they cook evenly.
Step 2: Heat the Pan
Next heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. You don’t want the pan to be too hot or the omelette will burn but you also don’t want it to be too cool or the eggs won’t cook properly.
Once the pan is heated add in a small amount of butter or oil to prevent the eggs from sticking.
Step 3: Pour in the Eggs
Pour the beaten eggs into the pan let them cook for about 30 seconds until they start to set. Then use a spatula to gently lift up the edges of the omelette let the uncooked eggs flow underneath.
Repeat this process a few times until there’s no more liquid egg left on the surface of the omelette.
Step 4: Add the Fillings
Now it’s time to add in your fillings. Arrange them on one side of the omelette leaving a little space around the edges.
If you’re adding cheese sprinkle it over the fillings now so it has a chance to melt. The heat from the eggs will help it to melt quickly.
Step 5: Fold Serve
Using a spatula gently fold the other half of the omelette over the fillings. Let it cook for another 30 seconds or so until the cheese is melted the eggs are cooked to your liking.
Then slide the omelette onto a plate serve immediately. If you like you can garnish it with some fresh herbs or a sprinkle of cheese.
Making the perfect omelette doesn’t have to be difficult. With these easy steps you can create a delicious omelette in minutes. Customize it with your favorite fillings enjoy a delicious breakfast or brunch.
