 ★ Ingredients ★ 

  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tbs Milk
  • 2 tsp Butter
  • Salt
  • White Pepper
  • Parsley

 ★ Instructions ★ 

  1. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and beat them until they turn a pale yellow colour.
  2. Add the milk to the eggs and season to taste with salt and white pepper.
  3. Whisk vigorously, you need to beat as much air as possible into the eggs.
  4. Heat an Omelette Pan or a heavy bottomed nonstick Frypan over medium-low heat.
    Add the butter and let it melt.
  5. When the butter in the pan is hot enough to make a drop of water hiss, pour in the eggs. Important - Do not stir!
  6. Let the eggs cook for up to a minute or until the bottom starts to set.
  7. With a heat-resistant rubber spatula, gently push one edge of the egg into the center of the pan, while tilting the pan to allow the still liquid egg to flow in underneath. Repeat with the other edges, until there's no liquid left.
  8. Your eggs should now resemble a bright yellow pancake, which should easily slide around on the nonstick surface.
    If it sticks at all, loosen it with your spatula.
  9. Now gently flip the egg pancake over, using your spatula to ease it over if necessary.
    Cook for another few seconds, or until there is no uncooked egg left.
  10. If you're adding any other ingredients, now's the time to do it. (See filling suggestions below.) Spoon your filling across the center of the egg in straight line.
  11. With your spatula, lift one edge of the egg and fold it across and over, so that the edges line up.
    Cook for another minute or so, but don't overcook or allow the egg to turn brown. If necessary, you can flip the entire omelet over to cook the top for 30 seconds or so. Just don't let it get brown.
  12. Gently transfer the finished omelette to a plate.
  13. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately.

 ★ Recipe Notes ★ 

➥ Prepare filling first. Omelettes cook so quickly, any fillings should be ready to go before starting the eggs.
➥ You should always make an omelette in a nonstick pan.
➥ The best choice for a 2-egg omelette is an 8-inch omelette pan, especially when you're first learning.
But any nonstick sauté pan will do as long as it's round with sloped sides and between 6 inches and 10 inches in diameter.
➥ Don't try to make a 3-egg omelette in a smaller pan.
Once you've mastered the technique, you can move up to a 3-egg omelette, but you'll want to use a 10-inch omelette pan.
