The Ultimate Omelette
« on: June 10, 2008, 07:02:36 pm »
I know not about the others in this forum, but I consider the omelette to be my absolute specialty, in part due to the fact that it was the first thing that I ever learned how to prepare- all the way back when I was an ickle six years old and had to have help from mommy to crack the eggs. Ever since then, I've made the dish countless times, working to improve my recipe. I came to my current rendition of the formula two years ago, and I've not found any better even from a two star French restaurant near my home. Here is the recipe to what I hope is the best omelette you will ever taste.

Egg mixture:

3 large white eggs
2-3 tbs half-and-half
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Sweet curry powder
Garlic powder
Juice from 1/4 lemon or lime or 1 tbs apple cider vinegar

Filling:

2 sliced button mushrooms
About 1/6 of 1 chopped Vidalia onion
1/2 of 1 coarsely chopped orange or yellow bell pepper
Shaved Parmesean cheese

Whisk all ingredients except for acid (juice or vinegar) vigorously together in a chilled copper bowl. Heat a skillet to medium-high heat and add butter and olive oil to pan, ensuring that all possible area is coated with the fat mixture. Immediately before adding egg mixture to hot pan, add in acid and whisk together, adding to pan as quickly as is possible. Put down a liberal layer of shredded parmesean cheese and add the chopped vegetables for the filling. Fold the omelette when appropriate and serve with salty red tomato salsa.

Enjoy!

I've always been partial to Greek Omelettes which have a filling of Feta cheese, tomatoes, and either Calamata or Greek black olives, with a sprinkling of Thyme and Oregano.

OTOH, Fritattas are also really good as well, though instead of folding the mixture over around the filling, as you do with an omelette, you add all the ingredients to the egg mix while it's still quite wet, finish it off in your oven. --You also use a dozen eggs, as a proper fritatta feeds more than just one, so use a deep dish skillet, or a dutch oven.

I like omelettes as well, but I'm kinda partial to what's called the "Denver omelette" or varieties thereof. Usually, it's an omelette with diced bacon or ham, onions, green pepper, and perhaps some shredded cheese. :)

mm... I've not heard of that one. I've not had a lot of omelets, but from what I've had, a plain Ham, cheese, bacon and hash brown Omelet is my favorite. Somewhat similar, but without the veggies. The hash browns can be in it, or on the side.  :)

I've always loved the scrambled omelet, or 'shipwreck' as the Girl Scouts call it.  It's a great way to get rid of extra veggies & breakfast meats in the fridge.
