I learn how to make an easy omelette

Alright, let's get ready to cook an omelette!
Alright, let’s get ready to cook an omelette!

Richard prepared an omelette for us tonight – and I watched closely to see how it is done. Reggie was darting about with her camera, thoughtfully documenting the whole process for my blog.

“In case you end up writing a recipe book, Flat Kathy,” she remarked. “Fabulous Cooking with Flat Kathy – don’t you think that has a nice ring to it?”

“Hmmm… it does, actually…”

Fortunately, an omelette looks like a fairly easy, filling and delicious meal that a girl like me should be quite able to prepare. In case I should need to make breakfast or lunch or supper for a guest, for instance. You never know when this might be useful.

The ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk (or water, if you prefer)
  • salt and pepper
  • parsley
  • spring onions
  • tomatoes
When the omelette is almost done, you sprinkle on the spring onion and the chopped tomatoes

The method:

  1. Crack two eggs into a bowl, and add the milk (or the water).
  2. Add some salt and pepper.
  3. If you have dry parsley, you can add it now; if it’s fresh chopped parsley, you can add it later.
  4. Whisk briskly for about a minute or longer – the more you whisk, the fluffier and lighter the omelette will be.
  5. In the meantime, melt a tablespoon of butter in a frying pan (you don’t need much butter if it’s a non-stick pan).
  6. Reduce heat to medium (if the stove is too hot, the omelette will burn before it is cooked).
  7. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. No stirring, just leave it to settle.
  8. As it starts to look more solid and less runny, sprinkle on the parsley, the spring onions, and the tomatoes (finely chopped, or halved, however you like it).
  9. If you are planning to fold the omelette in half, remember to sprinkle the ingredients only across one half.
  10. You can also at this time add any other ingredients (e.g. chopped salami, ham, bacon, peppers, etc.).
  11. If you like cheese, you can add this ontop and allow it to melt for about a minute. (Of course – we didn’t add cheese…)
  12. Remove from heat, fold in half, and ENJOY!

        1. Ohh! Ham, cheese and mushroom! Ohh, what a delicious mixture! I haven’t had cheese in … oh … aaaages. They don’t have cheese in this household. It’s a little peculiar.
