Learning how to make a perfect French omelet may sound daunting, but it’s not hard at all. Using these tips and technique, you can make your own fluffy French omelet any time.
Making an omelet seems more tricky than it really is. One secret is having a well greased or non-stick pan. The eggs must be able to cook without ever sticking to the bottom of the pan. It’s also important to have all the fillings chopped and ready to add once the eggs have begun to set up.
You can make an omelet with as many eggs as you would like. I use 2 for myself, and 3 if I’m making one for my husband. Whatever ingredients you want to put in your omelet, pre-cooked and/or chopped. I’m using mushrooms, spinach and cheese.
Over a medium heat, add a little butter in an omelet pan, making sure it’s well coated.
Add eggs, stirring constantly with a spatula.
As the eggs begin to set up, continue pulling the eggs away from the sides and bottom of the pan.
When the eggs are nearly done cooking, add fillings in a straight line, along the center of the omelet. Using a spatula, carefully pull up sides of omelet to enclose filling.
A perfect French omelet should be perfectly cooked, with no traces of brown on the outside.
Continue rolling the French omelet away from the handle of the pan, until it’s folded into thirds. When it’s at the edge of the pan, you should be able to easily slide it onto a plate.
Now that you know how to make a perfect French omelet, you can host a delicious weekend brunch!
