How do you make an omelette?
Whip eggs until well mixed but not too airy. Pre-heat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat and add a knob of butter. Swirl the butter around the pan and when the butter is foaming, pour in the beaten egg. With a spatula, Scrape the egg around the sides of the pan. Season with salt and pepper and allow to cook until the egg is done to your preference. Add the filling of your choice then fold over and serve.
Do you add milk or water to an omelette?
Adding liquid to the eggs used for omelettes can result in a tough, watery omelette. It’s best to use free-range eggs and only season them once they are in the pan to result in a soft, silky omelette.
How do you tell if your omelette is undercooked?
Depending on your preference, cook the omelette until you can see the top of the omelette is set all the way through (the egg will be opaque and set, not runny). If you are worried about eating undercooked egg, cover the omelette with a lid while cooking for a minute which will steam the top and will result in fully cooked egg.
