Omelets are one of the easiest foods to make
! Here's how to make one omelet (for 1 person).
Take two eggs and crack them in a bowl. Add a lil milk (1-2 tablespoons) and beat them with a fork till the mixture is a pale yellow colour throughout.
Heat up a non-stick pan on the stove (on a medium heat) with a little butter/non stick spray on it. Its great if you have a small circular pan about the size of a medium plate-thats the perfect size for a single omelet. If not, just use any size you have- but remember that it will spread out more, so it will cook faster. When the butter melts or the spray starts to kind of evaporate, the pan is ready.
Pour your egg mixture right into the pan, slowly- so you dont splash all over the place! While its cooking (you can cover it to speed it up, but it really doesnt make much difference) get out your filling----
* My favourite filling is a slice of processed cheese (ie Kraft Singles) & a handful or so of shredded ham or turkey (i just rip up sliced deli meat with my hands)
Back to your cooking eggs- It should take a couple of minutes or so, but watch carefully! When the top of the eggs (the part you can see) is pretty much set (there might be a teeny bit of liquid still, but not much), the egg is cooked. THIS IS THE TRICKY PART! Take a plate big enough to fit the entire flat egg on. Shake the pan/use a spatula to get the egg to slide onto the plate, cooked side down. Once its onto the plate, hold the bottom of the plate and hold the pan over top of the cooked egg (so that the non-cooked side and the pan are facing each other) and FLIP so that the un-cooked side is now onto the pan. Dont worry if the egg breaks- this is the hardest thing to do! If it does break, just push the egg back together (on the pan) so that its close to the original shape.
Then, QUICKLY put the cheese slice and meat (or whatever your filling is) on HALF the omelet. Wait a minute, then, using a spatula, fold the other half (with no filling on it) over the filling. annnnnnnnnnnnnd youre done!
Hope this helps- tell me how it goes and good luck! Bon appetit!
