Perfect Omelette

Makes 1 omelette that's big enough to feed 2


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp butter

Special Equipment

  • non-stick skillet
  • silicon spatula


  1. Preheat broiler
  2. Whisk eggs in bowl (can add fillings like cheese, mushrooms, onions, peppers, bacon but this recipe is the classic with no fillings). DON'T add milk because it will brown the omelette
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium flame
  4. Add olive oil to the skillet
  5. Add butter to the pan (will keep olive oil from burning)
  6. Coat edges of skillet with oil and butter
  7. Add eggs to heated skillet
  8. Use a silicon spatula (can take high heat) to move edges of eggs in and swirl around, pulling edges in toward the middle
  9. This step is the secret to this omelette's light, fluffy success! Place the pan under the broiler to cook through. Omelette should be pale in color and puffed up
  10. In the skillet, fold one edge over.  Then slide halfway onto a plate and fold over
