An Omelette: The Way I Like It!

Many people like their food in their own ways whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner. This article is about making an omelette, the way I like it: all crispy, hot and with a bit of a Chinese essence to it.

Steps To A Successful Omelette

  • Crack it up!
  • Solidify
  • Target: Golden-Brown

Follow these three easy steps and watch as two simple eggs evolve straight into a delicious and scrumptious breakfast!

Crack It Up!

The first step is pretty simple:
Just take two eggs and crack them, pouring them into a bowl. It's doesn't have to be perfect so don't fret if you mess up.
Add some salt.
Take a whisk--a fork would work as well-- and start beating the egg yolks in a circular motion until all you see is a yellow goo. Make sure there are no white or transparent parts left.

Take a flat pan and pour a bit of oil in it (1-2 tsp is enough) and turn on the stove. Keep the flame in between the minimum and maximum. When the pan is hot enough, pour the mixture into it and spread it across the whole pan as much as possible as shown in the picture below.

Solidify

Let the omelette rest on the pan for a while until it becomes solid (don't worry, you'll know when it happens).
The thickness of the omelette depends on the size of pan you use.
If you use a very large pan, such as the one in the picture, the omelette would be very thin and would taste better. However, if you use a small pan, the omelette would be thick and as a result, the heat may not penetrate it as quick and so it won't taste as good (I'm the kind of person that doesn't like the whites of an omelette).

Now if you don't mind breaking up your omelette, scarring it from perfection, then just flip it across.
But if you're the type of person that a prefers a perfect meal in presentation, in this case, keeping the omelette in a circle, then using a spatula, separate the edges of the omelette from the pan but do it carefully because the omelette would be very thin at the edges and can easily tear up. So make sure you lift it up carefully and slide your spatula towards the center of the omelette, slowly lift it up and flip it over.
The side of the omelette facing up would be brown by now. Your goal is to make it golden-brown.

Target: Golden-Brown

Now work on the other side of the omelette and flip it once it's golden-brown. To speed it up, firmly press down on the omelette using your spatula in intervals. The sides of the omelette would become crusts.
Just keep flipping them over until both sides are golden-brown as shown in the picture (it is suitable to keep the flame at a minimum so as to prevent it from getting burnt).
Once your omelette is done, just turn off the stove, flip it onto a plate and enjoy!
The smell is really intoxicating in a good sense. It always draws me towards its power as it will draw you.

A very different approach. I usually do the stirring on the pan... Well my husband like it to be that way. But, I'll try your method, thanks.
