Who will teach me how to make a perfect egg omelette?
I am told I am a great cook. I churn out exotic dishes. I have even tried decorating cakes and stuff but no matter how hard I try I just cannot make a perfect omelette. The problem is when I try to take it out it crumbles.

Eggs are my favourite. I use them in many of my dishes. My date and walnut cake which I baked for Christmas had 4 eggs in it. And then there is that bread pudding. I just dump bread pieces but beat the eggs briskly. It is the eggs that holds my pudding together

Have you tried making salads with boiled eggs? That salad is ideal for breakfast. Sliced boiled eggs with sliced tomatoes and boiled beetroot with the usual dressing is a great fast breaker. I coat my cutlets with the beaten egg just to hold the cutlet together.

Now coming to the main problem I am facing it is that of the omelette I try to make. I am using the right ingredients I know for sure - chopped onions, chopped green chillies, I even add a dash of scraped coconut and all this is added to the well beaten egg with salt to taste ofcourse. I heat the non stick pan, put some oil in it and pour the stuff. It spreads well but when I take it out it crumbles - a great disappointment. Even when I try to fry an egg with sunny side up I cannot remove it. The yellow breaks . I am perfect with boiled eggs and even poached I poach them sometimes with water and occasionally with milk.

I am fine with the French Toast. The bread turns out golden brown which is dipped in a mixture of well beaten egg, nutmeg and sugar. How do you make your French Toast?

I am not sure what qualifies for the perfect. But based on my experience, it seems like the most of egg omelette's are made from the different type of the mixture these days. So for each culture their perfect version can be lot different than what you can guess here. And on that note I'd say such type of the omelette are worth thinking about.

you can find the omelette recipe online. There are many sites for a perfect recipe but I would rather have a simple omelette at home, use olive oil, beat the eggs well, pour into the frying pan, swirl well into a circle and lightly fry it.

This is how I make mine and it comes out perfect, then beat the eggs well without adding additional water because some people add a bit of water, pour it into the oil and swirl it into a circle and viola.it done.

it seems like this thread wanders around all over the place and might better have been titled “what can you make with an egg” as opposed to learning how to make an omelette. Regardless, I think that there is no perfect answer to the original question because each person has different likes and dislikes with food, so what seems like a perfect omelette to one person might not seem that way to another person. I like my. Omelette with lots of veggies in them, peppers, onions, mushrooms, and even jalapeño peppers; but some people will not like those additions, so they might want just a plain ham and egg omelette instead. I also like cheese in my omelette, and again, that is one of the ingredients that is optional, just like adding salsa on the top of an omelette is. In conclusion, there is no best way to make an omelette, you just need to experiment with the ingredients you like and go from there.

Really? I actually attempted to make an egg omelet not too long ago. It was my first time and what I did was I looked for the beginners tutorial/guide on YouTube. It was some guy that gave really useful tips and I followed it. I only added cheese and ham. It turned out divine and I have made it many times now. I am not sure why you are having issues taking it out, did you add enough oil?

Low flame, you want it cooked thoroughly and to have some weight when you fold it. If you turn it too soon the yolk just flows out of the omelet and you end up with a mess. Make sure to put the ingredients in the omelet on the side you are not flipping and trying to use some of the excess running yolk to seal the ingredients in. That's all I got.

When i make an omelet i add the egg to the frying first and then i added the veggies to it. I dont pour it all in at once. You have to be able to fold it over and it will not do that if everything is added to the egg first. You can also add a cover on the frying pan it helps cook the inside of the omelet.

Well stated,I like mine well cooked and I cover my pan though my friend is of the opinion that it will still cook well even without the covering I feel okay covering it, certainly adding the veggie before folding might makes it difficult to swirl and fold,so yes right not all the veggie should be added at a go.I totally agree with this.

Everything is all about choice and what we desire to do in life. As regards making the fried egg, I would suggest you take out time to research on the internet for there are series of recipes you can use to make it delicious and good to eat as well.

I have heard low flame and I have also heard high heat. I think I will go with the low flame and cook it thoroughly. You must be very patient when making omelettes so that when they are almost thorouhgly cooked you can add your ingredients warm them if needed and fold the flat eggs over.

I particularly learned how to make an omelet just by looking at my mother when I was a child. Today, after getting married I make a good omelette whenever I want. I like to mix some things like herbs, tomatoes and even Parmesan cheese. Omelette is a very practical recipe, mainly for me who do not have much cooking time. So almost every time I'm home without my wife, I opt for ometele.

Well, I guess it depends upon what you would call perfect--there are different schools of thought on the omelette. For example, a "perfect" French omelette is very simple looking and does not usually contain a lot of fillings. However, if you go to an American Waffle House or Ihop and order an omelette, it will be chunky and stuffed with all sorts of meats and vegetables, even chili if you want, and topped off with more cheese, salsa, sour cream, or chives--you name it. I think the trick is in the attention you pay to heating it and how you work the eggs in a non-stick pan, so, when it is time to fold it, you can do so perfectly and eloquently.

I think the reason the omelet breaks is because you did not spread the oil on the pan. I have no problems with frying an egg and I also never expect my omelet to come out round and perfect. If you don't want it to break, you will have to put more oil and let it be hot and evenly spread on the pan. Then you can cook your omelet. Just make sure it is not sticking on the pan before lifting it. And lift it with a bigger spoon.

I am not a good cook either but I can do a perfect omelette as per my standard. Just beat the egg well and spread it on a non-stick pan with moderate heat. When the bottom starts to solidify, pour in the fillings carefully so as not to ruin the spread of egg. Slowly, pick up one side and make it a cover for the fillings. Do the same for the other side. If needed, do it on all 4 sides so the fillings are fully covered just like a pie. And when the egg is already cooked, you can turn it over for more cooking of the upper part. Good luck to your cooking and be ready with the buttered toast.

If the amount of onions and other additions is greater than the egg quantity, the omelet might break. Try creating a plain omelet and see whether it breaks or not. Or you want to add more onion and other additions, use two eggs.

I'm not sure how a perfect omelet looks like if ever there's one. No one taught me how to cook or make omelets. I just learned to cook by instinct and sometimes, with the help of cookbooks and recently, the internet. I just know that for the egg to cook well and be fluffy, it needs enough cooking oil. My son loves omelette and I try to make it more interesting by adding some mushrooms, bacon, hotdog, or corned beef. We eat omelette with fried rice, not French toast.

I would love to teach you how to do it but unfortunately I'm not good at cooking or baking somethings. I want to learn how to cook because that is one of my bucket list this year. Anyone there willing to teach me also how to cook ? :D Just kidding, but I would to if there is.

I am on an egg keto diet so, eggs are really my thing. I look on Youtube for different recipes. For the perfect omelette see Youtube and perfect your skills. An omelette is not round and for it to fold well without a problem put a bit of chesse. If you want to add beef and other vegetables without folding, put oil on the pan, pour over your mixture , then put the heat down and put a cover. Don't turn it over. Just don't! It will turn out like scrambled eggs. I put peanut butter in my french toast and roll it and put it on a pan. I then top it with strawberries when it is ready.

I saw your ingredients those are for Tortas and not for Omelettes. You have to put in some milk in to make it fluffy and creamy. You need some cheese as well, so that it will stick together.

Egg Omelettes are quite easy to make, and if you master the basics, then you can make other kinds of Omelettes and also variants like Tortas and Fritatas using different kinds of vegetables, spices and meat as ingredients.

Basic omelette consists of eggs, onion and chives, salt and pepper, milk and butter, a bit of oil and a cup of cheese . Just beat eggs put a bit of milk in it while beating along with the cheese. Stir in the sliced or chopped white onions in to the mixture, season it with salt and pepper. Preheat a pan, put some oil in it, when the pan is hot, put some butter in, then pour some of the egg mixture in, make sure the whole pan is covered by the mixture then sprinkle some chives on it and then cover it, put it on low . After 4 minutes fold it in half then cook on each side for about 2 to 3 minutes then it's ready to serve.

Now for the French Toast, I learned this recipe when I was 5years old.
You need some white bread slices, eggs, milk, butter, some sugar, a bit of cinnamon, a bit of garlic and onion powder and some chives.

Beat and Mix eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon powder, garlic powder, onion powder and put the slices of bread to soak and absorbed the egg mixture.

Preheat a pan, when hot put butter. Pan fry the soaked bread slices, until light golden brown in color. Served as is or with jam.

Thank you for posting the recipe of the french toast. To be honest, I had been trying to experiment on the french toast but all I get is another kind of toast. I would dip the old bread into the mixture of egg and butter plus bits of cheese. That is our french toast although I know it is not the genuine french toast. Now I can do a real french toast for breakfast that maybe I can have it for the next weekend.

Cooking eggs was the first thing my grandma taught me. We used to raise chickens back in the day and we always have a fresh dozen of eggs daily. Theres 2 techniques in cooking Sunny Side-Up eggs. First is by heating up the wok or pan before putting a liberal amount of cooking oi, wait until the oil is very hot, then reduce heat. Then crack an egg and fry it with the yolk intact, base the top with the hot oil by using your spatula, it should take about 20-30 seconds to cook it, making sure that the oil is very hot creates a crust on the bottom of the egg, making it easier to scoop it out with a metal spatula. Using a lot of hot oil prevents it from sticking to the pan. The second way of cooking it, is by using a non stick pan which you still need to oil or grease a bit. Just crack an egg in and put a tablespoon of water into the side of the pan and cover for about a 20 seconds and you'll get a perfect yolk Everytime. Just be sure to use a tight cover.

I don't know how to make a perfect omelet since we have our own style and standards. What perfect for me may not be perfect for others. But when I make this food, I always make sure that the pan and oil are hot before putting the egg. And then add the veggies or meat that you want to add to your omelet.

I honestly don't like eggs so omelettes aren't something I ever make! My husband makes scrambled or fried eggs but never really makes omelettes since he prefers other ways of serving them.
