How to turn the omelette without making mistakes

It is one of the most envied skills in the kitchen, a skill that must be developed and perfected over the years, and that if you are wrong … you risk making a nice mess!

To turn an omelette perfectly without causing damage, however, there are some simple tips that you can follow. Here’s what they are:

• Always use a non-stick and well-greased pan. That way the omelette wo n’t stick!

• Don’t be in a hurry! The most important question you can ask yourself is how to know when to turn the omelette. Often those who cook are caught by the easy deception that it is a very fast dish and that after a few minutes they can already turn it.

This haste can often lead to turning it when it is not yet well done. In general, wait for it to be crunchy underneath and already compact on top (help yourself by always cooking it with a lid) and only then turn it over !

• Method is everything. There are those who blow it up, those who turn it with a spatula , those who turn the pan upside down on a lid or flat plate. In short, there is no right or wrong way: choose the technique that suits you best and… try it!

Until the 1950s, the omelette was confused with the omelette . However, there is a substantial difference that separates the two recipes: the French preparation does not include the passage in which the mixture is turned during cooking. In fact, it is served simply folded in two. Another difference between the two is the thickness: the omelette is cooked in butter while the omelette is cooked in olive oil . Furthermore, the first is often lower than and, among the ingredients, does not include Parmesan.
