Are you new to cooking? Do you feel overwhelmed by the simplest recipe?
If you are one, among many, who has burnt toast; overcooked a meal, or has been running up a bill at your local take-out; it’s time to put the mettle to the iron, or in this case, some eggs to a frying pan. Here is a simple recipe on how to make an omelet.
What You’ll Need:
Non-stick 7” frying pan
Shredded cheese (either Swiss or American)
Salt and Pepper
Take the 7” frying pan and place on the stove, medium heat. Take the stick of butter and just lightly grease the pan. You can also use cooking spray.
Take two eggs, gently crack them open and place in a bowl. Add two tablespoons of milk. Whisk the eggs with a fork until the yokes have completely separated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
When you hear the sizzling of the butter, add the eggs to the pan. Let the eggs sit for just a minute. Since the eggs will begin to cook at the outer edge first, take the spatula and gently move the eggs from the outer edge to the middle of the pan. Continue this process until the eggs are no longer in a liquid state.
At this time, you can add any fillings you’d like – veggies, cooked meats, fresh herbs to one side of the omelet. Also, add the shredded cheese, then take the spatula and place it under the other side of the eggs and fold over onto the cheese side. Cook until cheese is melted.
Turn off gas. Use the spatula to take the omelet out of the pan and place it onto the plate.
Congratulations! You have just made your first home cooked omelet. Wasn’t that easy? Did anything burn? If so, don’t worry. Once you keep repeating this process, you will be able to gauge the temperature of your stove so that your next omelet will be perfect!
