Omelets for Dummies

I haven’t posted a recipe in a long time and you’re all probably better for it. But I made something this morning and when that happens, I take pictures just in case it doesn’t happen again. And if we’re being honest, it usually doesn’t. Homegirl made herself an omelet! I always thought omelets were reserved only for those who know how to cook and iHOP. Not so. Even the biggest dummy can make one. Here’s how:

First, find yourself a dummy.

Then, crack two eggs and beat them like they stole your money.

Pour some salt in their wounds while you’re at it. (No really, add some salt.)

Next, get yourself a small pan, spray that thing with some cooking spray, and pour those eggs in there.

At this point, I hope you realize the stove should be on. Medium heat should work.

Wait until the bottom half of the eggs are cooked, kinda like at the point you’d flip a pancake. Then put some veggies and shredded cheese on there. Or put meat in there. I don’t know what you like in your omelets. I’m just trying to help you here.

Before you say chopping veggies is too hard and you couldn’t possibly make an omelet, note that I feel the same way.

Let the eggs cook the rest of the way through and then fold it in half.

Put that omelet on your finest china and enjoy.

I put salsa and hot sauce on top of mine. But you put whatever you want on yours. I’m not going to tell you what to do. You’re an adult and I think you should make your own decisions.

    That looks scrumptious. Try this some time too, when you feel like changing it up: Up the heat to medium-high and then pour the eggs in. Scrape the edges in and turn the pan so that you get more of the runny part touching metal. (Repeat a couple times.) Stick your stuff in and then almost immediately start turning the omelet in until you get a trifold. It’s like an omelet burrito. Take it off before it starts to brown too much.

    It’s not better or worse this way, but it’s a different consistency and browns differently.

    Ditto Carolina. I can not make a pretty omelet for the life of me. That’s why I usually make mine more of a scramble — I still add everything I want (like veggies and cheese) and just smoosh it (technical cooking term) all together. Mmmm, smooshed eggs.

    Yours looks pretty, though. Very impressed!

    I do not know why it cracks me up so much that you did a post on an omelette. Hee!
    What I want to know is WHY omelette is spelled both omelette and omelet.

      Hee! I might do overnight oats later. Or just show a picture of an apple in my hand. It’s getting crazy up in here! (Spell check directed me to omelet. Now I need to know why spell check is so biased.)
