I Can Finally Make a Perfect Omelet

Thanks to this. And despite what it says, you can use butter if you prefer it to cooking spray (which I do). Just keep the heat low, like it says, and make sure to coat the whole bottom of the pan with butter. And the non-stick, shallow pan with rounded sides is key–as much as I love my cast iron, and I do use it to make plain scrambled eggs, it just won’t work for this.


  1. I use a teaspoon or less of olive oil. One of my indicators that the pan is hot enough is that the oil loses its viscosity and becomes more “liquid” spreading from a puddle in the middle of the pan to a thin film that covers the bottom of the pan.

  2. Good link. I will try this next time I make an omelette…her “Perfect Tomato Sandwich” is good too and I like her sassy style.

  3. Heh. Thanks for reminding me to check through her other stuff like I meant to. I am totally on board with Miracle Whip as “craziness.”

  4. If Miracle Whip is crazy, I don’t want to be sane.
