BASIC OMELETTE RECIPE | BBC GOOD FOOD
Provided by: Miriam Nice
Categories: Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Supper
Total time: 10 minutes
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
|3 eggs, beaten|
|1 tsp sunflower oil|
|1 tsp butter|
- Season the beaten eggs well with salt and pepper. Heat the oil and butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-low heat until the butter has melted and is foaming.
- Pour the eggs into the pan, tilt the pan ever so slightly from one side to another to allow the eggs to swirl and cover the surface of the pan completely. Let the mixture cook for about 20 seconds then scrape a line through the middle with a spatula.
- Tilt the pan again to allow it to fill back up with the runny egg. Repeat once or twice more until the egg has just set.
- At this point you can fill the omelette with whatever you like – some grated cheese, sliced ham, fresh herbs, sautéed mushrooms or smoked salmon all work well. Scatter the filling over the top of the omelette and fold gently in half with the spatula. Slide onto a plate to serve.

How do you use a folding omelette pan?
Some cooks also choose to use folding omelette pans as a simple divided pan, cooking an omelette in one side and hash browns or breakfast sausage in the other. Prepare your ingredients. Chop vegetables, cheese and other fillings, and break your eggs into a medium mixing bowl. Plan to use two to three eggs per omelet.
How do you cook eggs in an omelette pan?
Ladle your beaten eggs into both sides of the omelette pan. One full ladle is enough for a full omelette, so use about half a ladle for each side. Sprinkle your cheese and fillings over the surface of the eggs on one or both sides of the pan. Let the eggs cook for about two minutes, or until fully set.
What is the difference between an omelette pan and fry pan?
Omelette pans have different angle sides, which makes it easier to flip eggs when they are being cooked. Frypan only has the same angle sides. When it comes to the prices, omelette pans are generally cheaper than fry pans of the same size.
