A French omelette is probably just about the easiest meal to cook but there is an art in how to make a really good one that stands apart from all the others that you have ever eaten and making it country style will certainly be one to remember!
First of all we want to know the ingredients needed in order to make an omelette for just one person and these are outlined below:
French Omlette Ingredients
3 large eggs
1 pinch of salt
lesser pinch of pepper
half a tablespoon of olive oil
small pinch of baking powder and one onion
red pepper and green pepper finely chopped up and already fried lightly
French Omlette Instructions
Get hold of a non stick frying pan and after having poured the oil into it, let it heat up while in the meantime you break and drop into a round large bowl the 3 eggs. Add a pinch of salt and a lesser pinch of pepper to the eggs and then proceed to beat them with a hand or electric whisker and this is the part of the recipe which holds the secret. One has to beat the eggs a whole lot to ensure that lots of bubbles are created because it is precisely these bubbles which are going to make your omelette light and airy and make it be that little bit special and different from any other omelette. The secret and success of a good omelet is to add a pinch of baking powder which will ensure that it is even lighter and fluffier and seem more like a souffle rather than an omelette.
When the oil in your fying pan is really hot and you have beaten a thousand bubbles into your beaten eggs and you have mixed in the onion and peppers, you can now pour the mixture into the frying pan. Let it begin to cook while with a wooden spatula you keep on pushing and lifting up the edges of the omelette so that it doesn’t stick. Try also to dig the spatula right underneath the omelette ensuring that no part of it sticks to the bottom of the pan and so that you can also see what’s going on underneath.
When you feel that the underside of the omelette is beginning to look golden you can now start flipping the outer sides inwards. First lift up one side with the use of the spatula until it reaches the middle of the pan and then flip the corresponding side towards the edge of the other side. Once you have done this you can turn the omelette over and let it cook a while on the other side and after 1 minute more slide it from the frying pan straight onto a plate.
You can serve it with grilled tomatoes or mushrooms or even on its own. But whichever way you serve it I guarantee that it will taste fluffy and light just like a souffle.
