Cooking Transcends Generations

The great thing about making an omelette it is quick and easy. It does not require a lot time and it does not require a lot of money. Best part is the ability to be creative. 

Making Memories

Making an omelette is easy  enough to teach a child to make. Cooking unifies science; mathematics; nutrition; culture; history; and creativity into one experience. This means,cooking is a great way to teach children without them know they are being taught and it can also be a way to teach a child about their culture. Finally for the parent, the grandparent, and child it can create a memory that all of you will remember.

Brighter Tomorrow – 10 minute Ultimate Omelette

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Cuisine: American

Yield: 1

An omelette is a very versatile and cost effective year round meal.

In summer it is a great meal that can be made with very little preparation and it will not heat up the kitchen. Likewise, in fall recipe can be varied to add wonderful flavours and colours from your garden. Winter it can be a very hearty meal.

As for cost, it only takes a few minutes to heat up a pan and cook. Ingredients can be tailored to taste and cost.

Finally making an omelette is the all around meal suitable any time day or night.

Ingredients

  • 3 Eggs
  • Filling:
  • 1/2 green pepper chopped,
  • 1/2 medium white onion minced

  1. Place a medium 8 - 10" frying pan onto the stove and set heat to medium. Let pan warm up and if it begins to smoke turn down heat
  2. 1) Take 3 eggs and crack each one into a medium bowl and beat until frothy. Do not add milk, water or cream. Add a bit of salt and pepper for seasoning.
  3. 2) Set aside egg mixture
  4. 3) In a heated pan add 2 TBSP of oil and margarine.
  5. 4) If you are adding any fibrous vegetables add to pan. set aside a small amount for topping. cook until they soften
  6. 5) add egg mixture and other filling. leave a small amount of filling aside for topping later
  7. 6) let egg mixture settle and edge should be solid. Middle should not appear liquid
  8. 7) Once settled in pan fold egg. Omelette should now be folded in half.
  9. 8) Let cook and flip once.
  10. 9) Egg should be thoroughly cooked and should not be liquid.
  11. 10) Take egg out of pan and top with remaining filling

Notes

When cooking it is best to keep temperature to low or medium as this will keep the outside of the egg from burning and keep the middle from being underdone.

Also, if you are cooking with ingredients that have a high water content it is best to limit their quantity as you may find the water separates during cooking.

To bring out the flavour of the ingredients it is best no to use water, cream, or milk in the egg mixture. Plus adding water, milk, or cream will impact the texture of the egg. Along with impacting ingredients to cook. My advice do not add anything to the egg mixture.

Making the Incredible Ultimate Omelette

1. Assemble Ingredients & Prepare

Determine what you want to put into the Omelette.

Adding too many fillings may mean the omelette will not properly cook, leading to an under cooked centre and an over-cooded egg. As you assemble and cut the ingredients, place an omelette pan (medium size) on to a burner and turn the burner to medium heat to preheat. Preheating allows the pan to heat thereby helping to prevent sticking but remember no to leave the pan unattended. Also remember to keep small children away to prevent burns. If pan begins to smoke then turn down heat.

For this example I am using red pepper, cheese slice, and pre-cooked bacon, and an onions. However, whatever you want to add is up to you.

2. Chop Ingredients

Next cut ingredients in bite size pieces. Be creative in how you cut the filling but remember too thick or too large may mean it does not cook properly.

Cutting onions, it is best to cut the top off then make lengthwise cuts through the onion without cutting all of the way through it.

If you have any cheese take this time to shred it. Likewise if you need to warm up any meats then do it now. Finally crack your eggs into a small bowl, mix eggs thoroughly, and place the egg mixture to one side.

Water, Cream, or Milk to Mix with the Eggs?

For the best results, I find not adding cream, milk, or water is better. Milk can make the omelette brown to quick because of the milk sugar in it. Water can require more time for the omelette because of the excess water in the eggs and toppings. Cream, I have never liked in eggs and do not recommend it.

3. Cook Vegetables on Medium

By now your pan should be warm. Add a little oil, a little bit of margarine (optional), and a dash of salt (optional). Be very conservative in your use. A little oil will help prevent sticking but too much will make the omelette greasy.

Cooking Oil Suggestion

I prefer adding the oil right before adding the vegetables. Since it will keep the oil from smoking and it provides better results. Furthermore, I recommend vegetable oil. Whilst olive oil or sunflower oil might appear to be a healthier option, vegetable oil will tolerate heat. I find olive oil breaks down very quickly when used for cooking and likewise, sunflower has the same issue. This is because both olive oil and sunflower oil have a lower flash point, point at which it will begin to smoke. Thereby requiring a bit more attention to ensure heat does not destroy it and it does not cause a fire.  Next add any vegetables. Vegetables are fiborous and require additional cooking time before adding the egg. Cook the vegetables until they begin to become tender. They should be soft but not cooked all of the way through and they should not brown. If they begin browning turn down the heat.

4. Add Egg

Once vegetables become tender add your egg, any cheese, and any precooked meats. Make sure the egg covers the entire pan. Let egg settle. Depending on ingredients, amount of ingredients, and other factors this can take several minutes.

5. Fold Egg

Wait under egg settles. Settled egg is easily identified by a distinct solid edge. However an egg is not ready to be folded until it generally appears solid instead of liquid. There can be some liquid especially around the centre. Be aware, if you fold too soon the egg will stick and the omelette will fall apart and if you wait too long the egg may overcook. Once folded let egg cook a bit further until any liquid disappears. Now, flip the egg over for about 30 seconds to 1 minute to heat the other side.
