How To Make An Omelette
Will you like to learn the easiest way how to make an omelet? Well If you have a few eggs and some butter, you can make a little bit of a satisfying omelet for your dinner or breakfast.
There are two types of Omelette. A thick one like a frittata or Spanish omelet and a thin one that is folded when it’s ready to serve.
The size of the pan plays an important role in determining the quality of the omelet you make. If you use a 22cm pan for 2 eggs, it will bring out the desired quality of the Omelette, however, if you use a larger pan for this quantity of omelet, it will become too thin.
