Omelette tips and tricks
• Do you add milk? You can add milk, cream or even a little water for a dairy-free version. Some chefs recommend not adding anything but some grated frozen butter that will melt into the omelette as it cooks.
• How many eggs? It depends on how big you want it. A 2-egg omelette is good for one person as a light meal.
• Non-stick is best. This is one time you really need a non-stick pan. You don’t want to be scraping egg that’s stuck to the pan.
• Don’t overcook. The omelette should still be a little wet on the inside as it will continue to cook off the heat. You want the eggs to be creamy, not rubbery.
