Making the Perfect Omelette
Break the eggs into a mixing bowl and add a little water. Using a wire whisk or a fork, beat the eggs until they are just blended and only slightly frothy.
- 1. Melt butter in a nonstick fry pan over medium heat. Add the eggs. As they set, use a spatula to push the edges toward the center, tilting the pan so the uncooked egg flows underneath.
- 2. When all the egg has set to a custardlike consistency, arrange the filling across the center.
- 3. Shake and tilt the pan to loosen the omelette, making sure that it slides freely. If it sticks to the pan, use the spatula to loosen it.
- 4. Carefully begin to slide the omelette out of the pan onto a serving plate. When it is halfway out, turn your wrist to fold the omelette in half as it leaves the pan.
