 A few tips and tricks to make the Omelette with Cheese

  1. How many eggs are ideal to be in an Omelette? Well, in case you are making it for the first time, I would suggest you to make with 2 eggs. After learning this, you can make with more number of eggs.
  2. What is the ideal or best pan for making omelettes? Well, if you are making 2-egg omelette, the ideal pan is an 8-inch fry pan and if you are making a 3-egg omelette, the ideal pan is a 9-inch pan. I would suggest you to have a non-stick pan that is round with sloped sides.
  3. What is the ideal flame or heat while cooking? It is very important to cook over medium-low heat. Because if you cook the eggs over high heat, it can result in a rubbery or overcooked omelette, so always it is ideal to cook over medium-low and yes you have to practise a little patience.
  4. An important thing to be done is to have the fillings ready on a beforehand. This is because when you start cooking, you do not have to prepare it and have it ready, so that you can just add them quickly.
  5. How much fillings is ideal? Well, there is no such ideal quantity of filling, but yes make sure that you do not over stuff with fillings. So, if you have less fillings, it will taste great. On a general basis about 1/3 cup filling is ideal for 2 eggs.

Some of the frequently asked questions.

Question – Why did the omelette not turn out to be Fluffy?

Answer – There are a few reasons and complications why an omelette might not turn out fluffy. In order to have light and fluffy omelette, you need to whisk air into the eggs. And also the size of your pan matters. As already told one needs need an 8-inch round non-stick pan for a 2 eggs and a 9-inch pan for 3 eggs. If the pan you are using is bigger than what is required, the eggs will be flatter.

Question – What should be added in an Omelette?

Answer -Well, you can add so many things to it apart from cheese, although cheese is my personal favourite. So, we provide you with a few options about what you can add to the omelette:

  1. Cheese: The cheese can be out of goat cheese, Monterrey Jack or cheddar cheese. All of these cheese are tasty.
  2. Vegetables: You can add vegetables including mushrooms, bell pepper, diced, peas, onions, cubed potatoes. Always sauté your veggies first before adding them to the omelette.
