6MinOmelet

I’ve been keeping a food journal on Instagram (click here to check it out) and people are starting to see my almost daily omelets. It’s true, I’m obsessed. Honestly, right now I’m really only eating 1 of 2 things in the morning, eggs or oatmeal. Both are amazingly versatile and can be prepared so many different ways, I’ll never, ever get bored.

In this 6 minute video I share how I make most of my omelets. As I say, the fillings are completely customizable, easy to keep on hand, and the egg cooks up in minutes. You’ll be eating a warm breakfast in no time. Actually, that’s not true, you’ll be eating one in 6 minutes. ;)

Photo Step By Step Tips

Make sure your pan is big enough. A good 9-10 inch non-stick for a 2 egg omelet works great!

My 6 Minute Omelet  - step 1

Spray it with non-stick spray and preheat the pan over medium-high heat.

Saute your fillings. Some of my favorites include onion, peppers, broccoli, spinach, kale, mushrooms, ham,nd bacon bits.

While the fillings are browning, whisk 2 eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper.

You can leave the fillings in the pan for the next step but I like to remove them.

Re-spray the skillet with the non-stick spray and add the egg.

Pop the bubbles, swirl the egg around the pan and run a spatula around the edges. After about 30 seconds add the filling back in on one side.

Fold over and cook a few more seconds.

Flip, shut off the heat and let it sit in the pan for a minute.

    AWWWWHHHH!!! Evan is SO stinkin cute! I just love watching him watch you and when he waved at the end…oh the grin on his face was just adorable!

    I make omelets just like you! I use a smaller pan and one egg though because lately eating 2 eggs at a time gives me an upset stomach. Not sure what that’s all about…maybe it’s because I’m getting old? (40)

    Roni,

    Thanks for this!

    Do you use organic eggs? BTW what is your take on organics in general? I am reading a lot of confliciting articles these days. I am always trying to keep to a food budget and was wondering where you fall on this one? Thaks again for everything I have followed you for years. (Side note: I gave your cookbook to 4 people for Christmas last year and they love it).
    Cheers- Kathleen

    You are so welcome!

    I don’t always buy organic but I did start getting my eggs from a local farm when I can. I haven’t hopped on the organic bandwagon, I try to focus more on local and fresh. Organic is a bonus but not something I HAVE to have.

    Thanks for the cookbook feedback, that’s awesome!

    I don’t know about organic eggs vs. farm eggs (here in Chile are about the same thing, but I can imagine how they can not be the same thing in a country were an “organic” label costs you moree bucks than the regular thing) but farm eggs are far more superior. The yummy, almost buttery taste. The orange, bright and huge yolk. The sticky and firm egg white. The greenish/blue colour of the egg shell. I love farm’s eggs :)

    Thank you!!! I have been scouring the internet for MONTHS trying to figure out how to cook an omelette. It either comes out runny and burnt, or more like scrambled egg. You are a genius. I’m going to go and look at the rest of your website now =) ♥

    Thanks for such a great video. I stopped making omelets because I was having problems with them coming out correctly, but when I did it your way, I got a perfect product! Yummy! Thanks for the tips!
