How to Make 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 fold and incorporate the beaten egg whites and the yolks together. 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.
- 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.
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.
