Omelets are one dish that I never have been good and successful at making.
However, I did a lot of research on how to make the best omelet and I think this way is the easiest it's going to get. For me at least. There's no flipping involved. Thank the Lord. Because that never turns out well.
Omelets are now a part of my breakfast rotation and I am very happy to finally announce that. I feel accomplished that I've made it this far in life. I think I could die happily and proudly now.
Anywho, here's the recipe and filling ideas:
(Filling Ideas: Shredded cheese, onions, peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, basil, fresh mozzarella, ham, turkey, chicken, steak, black beans, bacon, turkey bacon, sausage, turkey sausage, asparagus, broccoli, brussel sprouts)
- 1 egg + 2-3 egg whites (1/3-1/2 cup liquid egg whites)
- splash of milk
- meat, if desired
- Olive oil spray or any nonstick spray
- Prep all of your chopped and/or sautéed veggies and meat, and shred/get out the cheese before you start cooking the actual omelet.
- Whisk your eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
- Heat a small pan on medium-low. Spray with olive oil spray.
- Pour in the eggs. Stir around a little bit with a spatula until you start to see it setting a little bit here and there on the bottom.
- Lift up the edges of the eggs around the pan and tilt the pan to let the uncooked eggs go underneath. May start to look a little lumpy. Or not. You may be a natural. I wasn’t.
- Let it sit for a minute or so until it looks just a little underdone on top still – it will keep cooking from the heat once you fold everything together.
- Add in your fillings in the middle of the omelet. Fold both edges over so they overlap a little bit and kind of resembles a tortilla-like look.
- Transfer carefully to a plate. Sometimes this may turn it in to scrambled eggs if you’re not careful. But it’ll still taste fabulous I’m sure :D
- Top with anything else you want - Lawry's seasoning salt, salsa, guacamole, avocado, etc.
- Serve with fruit and some kind of starch like potatoes or toast, and you've got a perfectly balanced meal!
