Tips For Making A Perfect Omelet
The omelet is one of the most delicious options for breakfast foods, but while an omelet is especially wonderful if you order it at a good breakfast restaurant, most people find that the omelets they make at home are not nearly as good; for one thing, homemade omelets have a tendency to be too thin, and for another, they have a tendency to get burned (not to mention the fact that they are often far uglier than they should be!), but if you follow the right procedure, you can avoid all these mistakes and can instead enjoy a delicious omelet. If you have anything that needs to be cooked before you make the omelet (such as chicken, or onions), take care of this first; while these cook, prepare your other ingredients - mixing two eggs with a healthy splash of whipping cream (which will keep the eggs fluffy), and chopping up some tomatoes, olives, and spinach. Once the onions and chicken (or whatever it was that needed to be cooked first) are finished and the other ingredients are prepared, clear the frying pan and bump the heat down to "low" - melting some butter (which is better for flavor than olive oil!) and dropping the mixed-up eggs on top. Sprinkle all of your prepared ingredients onto one half of the eggs as soon as they are spread out in the pan, and sprinkle some salt, pepper, or any other desired spices over all of the surface area of the eggs; after you have done this, grate some cheese over all of it, cover the frying pan, and allow it to sit for about three to four minutes. After waiting for these three or four minutes, you should be able to flip one half of the eggs onto the other half (flipping the side without the ingredients onto the other half), after which you will want to cover the frying pan again; after about two more minutes, you can remove the cover, turn off the heat, and slide your omelet onto your plate - and you should find that it is fluffy, fully-cooked (without being burned), and delicious!
