The traditional recipe of a French omelette is very easy to make, just follow the steps given below and indulge in the delight of a fluffy and tasty breakfast option. The ingredients required are:
- Eggs – 2 nos.
- Butter – 1 table spoon
- Salt – as per taste
- Pepper – a sprinkle
- Water – 2 table spoons
For the filling
- Cheese – as much as you would like but it has to be shredded
- Ham – finely chopped and depending on personal choice
- You could also use leftover vegetables, again as per your desire and replace it with ham
- Take the eggs (preferably from Norco Ranch) in a bowl, add salt, pepper and water and beat them until they are evenly blended.
- In a skillet or a medium sized pan add the butter and heat it
- Tilt the pan to coat it completely with the melted butter
- Pour the egg mixture into the pan, almost immediately the egg starts sticking to the edges of the pan
- Use your spatula to slowly push the cooked egg portion from the edges towards the centre, continue doing this so that the complete egg gets cooked evenly
- When the top of the egg liquid seems to have thickened, add in the filling and spread it out evenly only over the half surface of the omelette.
- Fold the empty half of the omelette over the filling and without wasting much time; slide it onto the serving plate.
Your French omelette is ready to be eaten; an omelette is best when eaten immediately after being cooked. If anyone wants to savor a sweet omelette, then all they need to do is replace the pepper and add a dash of sugar instead.
Also the ham can be replaced with berries and nuts of all sorts; it entirely depends on the preferences of the one who is about to it. Finish it off by dusting some powdered sugar over the top. Since the French omelette cooks really fast, preparing the filling before pouring in the egg mixture is very essential; if the plan is to add raw vegetables instead of leftovers, then the veggies should be very finely chopped or diced and need to be cooked even before the eggs are beaten.
