How to amek fluffy eggs

This omelet is different than most you have eaten. Egg whites are beaten until they have stiff peaks. This gives this fluffy omelet its height.

You need to gently incorporate the beaten egg whites and the yolks together gently, you do not want to stir out the air you have carefully whipped into them.

You will then cook this on the stovetop for just about 1 minute and then you will place this fluffy omelet into the oven so it can finish its cooking.

Cooking Tips for a Fluffy Omelette

You want to use eggs that are very fresh. I like to make this omelet with eggs I have just purchased from the store. I believe the fresher the egg, the more the whites will fluff up.

Make sure the bowl where you beat the egg whites in is perfectly clean. If there is a little extra oil or grease in the bowl where you beat the egg whites they may not whip up as full as you need them to be.

Variations on the recipe

There are a few different ways you may want to top this omelet. You may want to add some salsa, or fresh herbs, or even sprinkle some cheese on top.

You could also saute 2 tablespoons of chopped onions in 1 tablespoon of butter to top this omelet.

    You’ll never find fresh eggs at the supermarket, at best they’ll be a week old. For truly fresh eggs you either have to seek out someone who has laying hens, or obtain some of your own. Once you’ve tried freshly laid eggs you’ll never go back to store bought ones.

    Thank you. When are the vegetables or cheese added? Also, what if I don’t have an oven proof pan (unless you mean a cake pan).
    Also, off the subject, what is pancetta? I’ve seen it in a recipe for chicken Marsala. Is it necessary?

      You can add veggies and cheese after, this way it stays nice and fluffy. A skillet should work ok. When you put this one the stove top it will set up there, so transfering may not work well. Panacetta is a type of bacon. You could use bacon, it definitely is worth adding to that recipe. I hope this helps.
