Omelet Making Guide

Easy steps to a perfect omelet, plus great filling ideas.

The fastest meal on the planet is a simple folded French-style omelet. Once you have mastered the technique, as long as you have a few eggs on hand you will be able to whip up a healthful, satisfying repast that’s perfect anytime.

Step 1

Gently whisk the eggs or mix with a fork just until blended. Add about 1/2 tablespoon water per egg, if desired: the water will turn to steam as the eggs heat and make the omelet a little fluffier. The classic omelet is made without any additions other than a pinch of salt and a grinding of pepper.
