Demystifying the Omelet

Lift the edge of the eggs to allow the uncooked egg to flow underneath.

Making an omelet doesn't have to be tricky. Follow these tips and you'll be filling and folding like a chef in no time.

  • Use an 8- to 10-inch nonstick omelet pan for a two-egg omelet. It has sloped sides to help you slide out the finished omelet.
  • Coat the omelet pan with nonstick cooking spray or melt butter in the pan. Heat pan until a drop of water sizzles.
  • Cook the omelet over medium heat. As the eggs set, lift their edge with a spatula to allow the uncooked egg on the top to flow underneath.
  • When the eggs are set but still shiny, spoon filling ingredients across center of omelet. Fold sides of omelet over filling and slide omelet from pan.
  • You can experiment with different fillings too -- refer to our recipe.
