Bistro style omelets are the perfect breakfast for a lazy long summer weekend. They are ready in minutes and can be personalized to each person’s preferences. This recipe makes delicious fluffy and buttery omelets.
Tip: The key to easily cooking an omelet is to make sure your skillet is still non-stick. The coatings on these pans only lasts up to year at which point they need to be replaced. If you see your omelet is sticking to the tab, time to repurchase. These pans don’t need to be a huge investment. The Green Pan brand makes a good skillet that is available on Amazon. Enjoy!
Bistro Style Omelet
Makes one omelet
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 3 large eggs, well beaten
- fine sea salt and pepper
- toppings of your choice (ex. finely chopped chives, onions, red peppers, mushrooms, cheese)
Heat a non-stick 8 inch skillet over medium heat. Add butter.
When butter has melted and is beginning to bubble, add beaten eggs and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with a dinner plate and allow eggs to set, about 1 minute, depending on how quickly your pan heats.
At this point, add chosen toppings on top of the eggs, and cover with the dinner plate once again. Allow to set for another 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Remove plate and swirl pan by lifting the handle to make sure that eggs are set all around the omelette.
Using a heat proof spatula, lift the omelet sides towards the centre, as if folding an envelope. Allow eggs to set a little longer and place onto a heated plate. Top with chopped chives or parsley.
