If there is one thing I know I am good at making, it’s omelettes. They are the easiest and most delicious thing to eat on a weekend morning! If you have guests, they will be sure to compliment the taste and perfected omelette described in the recipe below.
Many people don’t know the trick to making a perfect omelette and in the end they will find themselves somewhere in between scrambled eggs and a frittata! Both are just as delicious, but sometimes us humans need that perfectly flipped omelette to start the day just right.
Ingredients (for 2 people):
- 3 basil leaves
- 1/2 cup diced smoked ham
- 1 cup white old cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup diced tomato
- 1/2 cup diced green onion
- 4 large eggs
- 1/2 cup of milk
- butter for the pan
To begin, you will want to prepare the eggs. Take two eggs at a time (two for each omelette), crack into a bowl and beat with a fork until the eggs are perfectly blended. Pour in a splash of milk, you only want enough milk to help smooth out the egg mixture. Then, add in as much pepper as you want and pinch of salt. Mix together.
Get a medium sized pan up to medium-hot heat while melting your butter inside. Then, add the egg mixture. If your egg begins bubbling heavily the pan is too hot, if it’s only bubbling a tiny bit, then it is perfect. The egg should be covering the entire base of the pan. On one side of the egg covered pan, lay down the 1/4 of your cheese, 1/4 of your onion and 1/4 of your ham. Allow this to sit for a minute as cheese melts, then add the 1/4 of the tomato and 1.5 basil leaves. If this seems like too big an omelette, take some ingredients out.
After about 2-3 minutes your egg should be full-out bubbling and starting to become much whiter. Use a spatula to check the under-side of a tiny corner of the egg mixture. If you see a light brown and a crispiness beginning, it’s time to flip that thing! Flip the side of the egg mixture with no ingredients on it to cover the side with your ingredients. At this point you should have what looks like a perfect omelette. Feel daring? Flip the whole thing for maximum omelette perfection – practice is the only thing that will help you with this step! (and alot of melted cheese, of course!).
