An omelet is a dish which is made from beaten eggs and quickly cooked with oil or butter in a frying pan. It is very common for the omelet to be folded around a filling, such as chives, meat, vegetables, cheese, or some combination of the above.
In order to obtain a fluffy texture, sometimes whole eggs are beaten with a small amount of cream, milk and even water. Some people like to add baking powder in order to produce a fluffier omelet, but many traditionalists see this ingredient as unfavorable.
There is must love about an omelet. It is healthy, fast, and very satisfying for such a simple dish. In our opinion, the speed is the key here. The best omelets are those which are cooked in about one and a half minutes. Omelets require finesse, but risks are low. You cannot ruin it, but rather just overcook it a little bit. The goal is to make omelet which is smooth outside and gleaming yellow.
It should also be creamy at the center. If you don’t have three minutes in order to make a proper omelet, then life has no meaning. Having said all that, you should make this delicious dish when you are in hurry or just want to have a healthy breakfast. You can make this for your children before they go to school or whenever you don’t have time to spare.
- 4 large eggs (divided)
- ⅛ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper (divided)
- ⅛ teaspoon of kosher salt (divided)
- 1 teaspoon of butter (divided)
- In the first step, combine a dash of pepper, a dash of salt, and two eggs in a small bowl.
- Now, stir it with a whisk until just blended, but make sure not to overbeat. In the next step, take an eight-inch nonstick skillet and heat it over medium heat. Melt a half teaspoon of butter in a pan and swirl to coat.
- Next, add egg mixture to the pan and cook for about one minute or until eggs are the consistency of very soft scrambled eggs (center looks wet), stirring frequently, using a rubber spatula.
- Make sure to tilt pan while you are stirring in order to fill every hole with uncooked egg mixture. Now, run a spatula under omelet and around edges in order to loosen it from pan. In this step, push one end of omelet up onto front lip of the pan. In the last step, repeat with remaining butter, eggs, pepper, and salt.
