Cook a Classic Omelette with Le Creuset Toughened Nonstick Cookware

Jul 09, 2019 Most Recent

The omelette has been delighting the world for centuries, whether in a breakfast nook, at a brunch party, or sometimes even at the dinner table. The fluffy omelette is a classic. Despite its popularity, many people are hesitant to take a swing at frying one up. Will it break when I fold it? Will I burn it? When do I put the cheese on? The omelette is easy to master, even for the novice cook. Follow our recipe here below! 

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • Fillings
le creuset omelette

Directions

  • Beat eggs in a small bowl.
  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium-high heat until melted. Tilt the pan to coat bottom. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edges.
  • Gently push cooked portions from edges toward the center with inverted turner so that uncooked eggs can reach the hot pan surface. Continue cooking, tilting pan and gently moving cooked portions as needed.
  • When top surface of eggs is thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, place filling on one side of the omelet. Fold omelet in half with turner. With a quick flip of the wrist, turn pan and slide omelet onto plate.
One of the most important parts of cooking an omelette (or any kind of egg) is to use a proper skillet. Nothing is worse than trying to fold an omelette and having it stick. We recommend using a skillet from the Le Creuset Toughened Nonstick line, a line of black enamel cast-iron skillets that are durable and non-toxic. The 12” Le Creuset Toughened Nonstick Breakfast Griddle would be a great choice for cooking an omelette, or the classic Le Creuset Toughened Nonstick Fry Pan would be a great choice as well.

And just remember, if your omelette won’t fold without breaking, just make it a frittata instead!
