Hey /ck/, i decided to upgrade from plebeian scrambled eggs to superior omelettes.
So how do into omelettes?
This is a thing. You have to take a stand on whether you lean French or American when it comes to omelettes. While the dish is French and there is a classic style what most Americans consider an omelette bears little resemblance to it. Are the eggs the star of the show, pale on the outside and moist in the middle? Or is the filling the star, the eggs just a fully cooked wrapper for it?
I like to do them as follows:
Crack Eggs into little bowl, lightly beat them with a fork, add some salt, pepper and paprica. If i feel like it i also add fresh herbs. Usually parsley and basil.
Heat pan to medium, add enough oil. Put mixture into heated pan and let it get firm with a hint of color. Flip and do again. Then i add some ham and cheese (i like gruyere with this), fold it and let the cheese melt a bit. I eat that with a cut up tomato as breakfast. Love it
Don't even bother.
Skip the pretentious bullshit, and just saute vegetables, season, and when they're done to your liking, toss in the egg, season one last time, and call it done when they're to your liking.
No need for silly folding.
professional french chefs even say some omelettes should be pale, some should be browned. it depends on what kind you like, one way isn't better than the other, just different.
people post this a lot. some people like their eggs browned, it doesn't effect you in any way so stop getting so offended over it. you're wasting your life.
make em like scrambled eggs (no salt when beating, add some cream or butter, keep it simple), just let a layer cook up in the pan before pulling it aside to let uncooked egg take its place
flip once, cook to your preference, serve
i do not recommend adding salt or seasoned vegetables while cooking, it makes them watery- but that is arguably the american style, so do what you want
Of course it does you fucking retard
