Egg omelette, how to make it perfect and easy step by step

It seems easy, but to make a perfect egg omelet, also known as a French omelette, there are a few points to keep in mind. The first of these is that you must have the perfect point since it is not worth it for it to be very dry or raw. Of course, it can’t stick to the pan or we’d end up making scrambled eggs instead of an omelet. In addition to all this, you must be rich, juicy and with its point of salt. With all this, we are going to take into account three basic aspects before starting to make our omelette:

    • The eggs: in the case of the main ingredient, it is essential to choose good quality free-range eggs that will be much tastier.
    • The pan: In order to easily prepare an egg omelet, it is necessary to use a non-stick pan so that the eggs do not stick to it. As for the fat that we will put in the pan, we can opt for olive oil to give it a Mediterranean air or butter, the most used ingredient in French kitchens.
    • juiciness: the third trick is to ensure that the omelette is perfectly juicy and this can be achieved by adding a little milk when beating the eggs.

With these three tricks and following our recipe, you can enjoy the best and simplest omelettes at your table.

How to make an egg omelet

We start by cracking 2 XL free-range eggs in a bowl with 1 teaspoon of whole milk and 1 pinch of salt. The milk will make the tortilla juicier.

We beat the eggs with some rods or with a fork until the white and the egg are integrated into the same mixture, but we must not beat excessively.

When the oil is hot, add the beaten eggs and cook the omelette over medium heat for a few seconds without stirring. So that the egg is distributed on all sides of the pan, we will lift it slightly and, with circular movements, we will make the egg spread.

After a few seconds of cooking, we will see that the edges of the omelette begin to curdle. You have to be careful because, at this moment and with the help of a palette, we will have to start folding the tortilla.
