How to prepare the recipe for puffed omelette in the oven

  1. First break the eggs and separate the white and the yolk . Add the flour, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper and the milk to the latter.
  2. Instead, whip the egg whites until stiff with an electric whisk, then incorporate them into the previous mixture, stirring gently from bottom to top with a spatula.

Baked puffed omelette: variations and how to fill it

The puffed omelette can be enriched in various ways. The first and simplest one involves adding 2 tablespoons of Parmesan and 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley . For a more summery version, however, we recommend the puffed omelette with cherry tomatoes and basil: a dozen cut in half will be enough together with a bunch of basil broken up by hand to give the dish a unique taste.

The idea of ​​adding diced cheese is also excellent, preferably soft cheese like we did with the taleggio puffed omelette. 100 g cut into small pieces will suffice to give new flavor to the recipe.
