  • Step 4

    Then break two eggs into the same bowl. Beat the contents again until smooth.

    Pour the egg-milk mixture, fry on the slowest fire, covered with a lid, but observe the state.

  • Step 7

    When the bottom side is well browned, very carefully turn the omelette over with a spatula and turn off the heat. Keep it on the stove for a couple more minutes.

  • Step 8

    The omelet should be served hot. The best addition would be a vegetable salad, sausages, toast, bacon. In general, everything that is still in the fridge.

Tips & variations

  • Use a thick-walled frying pan with high sides and a lid. It can maintain a constant temperature for a long time. Thus, the omelette is well "steamed" and does not burn.

  • Starting to prepare the omelette mass, keep in mind that you need to adhere to the ratio of 50/50. This means that the amounts of milk and eggs should be the same in volume.

  • Whisk eggs and milk with a whisk only. In no case is it a mixer. This is very important for creating the correct structure of the omelette.

  • Do not forget that the omelette mass poured onto a heated pan should be at least 3 cm thick, then the finished omelette will rise to 4-4.5 cm.

  • Do not leave the prepared omelette mass for a long time. It should be in a hot pan immediately after mixing the ingredients. Otherwise, the omelet may not rise and turn out to be heavy.

  • Pieces of vegetables, meat, cheese, mushrooms, the content of which in the omelette mass should not exceed 40-50 percent, can dilute the omelet.

  • Do not open the lid of the pan during cooking, otherwise the omelette will fall due to a sharp drop in temperature. Therefore, it is desirable that the lid of your pan is transparent. Thanks to this, you can determine the readiness of the omelette without opening it.
