I love eggs! They are a great source of protein and other nutrients. Omelets are one of my favorite ways to eat them because there are so many fun and yummy things you can do with them.
I can’t even tell you how many omelets I’ve made that have gotten stuck in the bottom of the pan or broken apart when I was trying to flip them. But I’ve finally perfected my technique, and I’m going to share some of those tips with you.
1. It all starts with the perfect pan. I was recently sent the Ozeri 8″ Green Earth pan, and I’m in love. It’s the perfect size to make individual omelets and the textured ceramic coating allows the egg to slide right out.
2. Crack two eggs per omelet in a small dish and add a small amount of milk. I like to add Sriracha to the egg mixture to give it a little spicy goodness. Whip that all up with a fork and pour into a preheated pan. If you’re not using a non-stick pan, grease it with a small amount of coconut oil.
3. Add salt, pepper, and any other spices desired.
4. Cover the pan with a lid and cook until egg is no longer runny. There’s no need to flip the egg over.
5. Add any desired fillings that you have already prepared, then fold the egg over the top of them. You can put the lid back on for a couple minutes to allow the cheese to melt. Voila! That’s all there is to it.
