Cooking omelettes


Question

What's the best way to make sure that an omelette cooks properly and doesn't have this undone white hue in the middle? It's odd since the gas flame is directly underneath the middle of the pan.

Cook it at a high temperature and keep turning it, or at a low temperature for ages?

I start them off on the hob but transfer the frying pan to grill to cook the top, both hot but I turn the heat off on the hob after a minute or so.

I think I will have a nice 5 egg omelette for lunch now! With venison and beef on the side. 100% keto after a 5km run that I am patching myself up for. 

 

When I used to come home from night shift I would scramble 6 eggs up.

Depends what kind of omelette..  if you're aiming for something like a Spanish tortilla,  then you are either going to need to flip it or get a pan with a lid. 

Otherwise the trick is to go thin..   Two or three eggs max,  beaten in a separate bowl with your seasoning and poured into a hot pan.

For anyone who considers themselves an omelette pro... Try this and weep.

 

That's exactly how the omelette bloke in the work canteen (more like a restaurant really) makes omelettes, though he will put stuff in them as well, they're not just plain. They're brilliant, but I will say that it's nothing like as easy in real life to do it yourself, I've never been able to make one as good.

That;s weird because that's exactly the way I make scrambled eggs, except I probably give it a little less time on the heat and don't bother to make it form a definite half moon shape. I wonder what the actual difference is to a pro chef between scrambled egg and a bona-fide omelette.

Whisk the egg up in a jug first. Make sure all the eggs mixes then put it in a sufficiently hot enough pan. Turn at least once so both sides are cooked. Takes minutes.

I tend to call it a whipped egg - no puns - which is commonly eaten in the US. I think we make too much fuss over an omelette and supposedly the correctly way to cook it. Whipped egg sarnie or crusty roll. Ketchup. Fab.

About 30 seconds :D
