Lessons > How to Make an Omelet
The omelet is one of the fancier ways one can enjoy eggs. For many, it’s a Sunday brunch favorite where they can watch a chef make it right before their eyes. Served plain and simple, or filled with your favorite ingredients like a cheese omelet, a perfectly-cooked omelet can be a sublime eating experience.
In the professional cooking world and in culinary schools, the ability to make a perfect omelet is also a sign of a well-trained chef. The great thing though is that while it does take a bit of practice, making a great omelet is within everyone’s reach.
