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.

  2. I always overstuff my omelet. It really becomes more of an egg burrito by the time I’m eating that sucker.

  3. I always mess up my omelettes, they never look “pretty” but they sure do taste delicious!

  4. 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!

  5. I’ve never made an omelet…I have tried and failed, but now I see…never do I flip it..just cook it and fold when done! Ahhh your picture story shows me the way! I shall try once we get some eggs and veggies (fridge is looking a bit bare).

  6. 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.)

  7. I am horrible at making omelets, so they usually don’t look as good as yours. I tend to just throw all the ingredients in wit the eggs so it’s more of a scrambled egg with veggies.

    Great, now I can no longer pretend that omelets are hard and I’m incapable of cooking them.

    Hmm…are you sure it’s that easy? I don’t know, I’m pretty good at messing up “simple” things. 😉

  10. I like goat cheese & mushrooms in my omelet – now I’m thinking it’s going to be breakfast for dinner time. 😉

  11. beat them like they stole your money…. bahaha

  12. LOVE this! I’ve never made an omelet because I was so afraid it would just fall apart. You make it look so easy. Love the BOOM haha…totally something I would say 🙂

    I haven’t attempted an omelet in so long because it always turns into scrambled eggs. Perhaps I should try again 🙂

  14. I can’t make my own decisions!!!! Food is too important for me to decide all alone.

  15. sometimes, nothing beats a fresh omelet in the morning 🙂

    I fail at omlets. Always. It’s the whole flipping thing. RUINED.
