The secret to a perfect omelette often lies in the eggs. Opt for fresh, large eggs and ensure they are at room temperature before you crack them. Avoid using eggs straight out of the fridge. After taking them out, allow them to rest for at least 15 minutes.

Crafting an excellent omelette demands patience and time. It's good to remember that, typically, one portion consists of 2 eggs without any additional ingredients. If you're aiming for a healthier version, you might only use one egg. Many recipes advise adding milk and flour to eggs for the omelette. For a more diet-friendly version, replace the milk with water and skip the flour entirely.

The art of making an omelette

Gone are the days of undercooked or flat omelettes. With the recipe we're sharing today, you'll be serving a fluffy and delicious omelette every time.

Before diving into the recipe, make sure all your ingredients are to hand. Don't forget about the necessary equipment either: a skillet, lid, and wooden spoon.

The wooden spoon serves two purposes: mixing the ingredients and easily transferring the finished dish onto a plate. The skillet, where the magic happens, should have high edges to prevent the omelette from spilling over or sticking to the lid. After all, we're here to cook an enjoyable meal, not a culinary catastrophe.

A final piece of advice before we go on: the recipe below is for a basic omelette. Once you've mastered it, you can add seasoning or fillings to make it sweet or savory.

On the sweet side, try spreading the cooked omelette with jam or cream, sprinkle it with fruits or icing sugar. For a savory twist, stuff it with ham, bell pepper, spinach, or cherry tomatoes. The possibilities are practically endless!


  1. 4 eggs, separated into yolks and whites
  2. 1 and a half tablespoons of butter
  3. A pinch of salt
  4. 4 tablespoons of milk
