How to Make the Perfect Omelet

How to Make the Perfect Omelet


Wake up, sleepyhead, it’s breakfast time! Why kick off the most important meal of the day with a bowl of cold, soulless cereal when you could whip up a delicious, protein-packed hot omelet instead? If you’ve never done it, cooking an omelet may intimidate you. (After all, some French chefs consider omelet making one of those quintessential kitchen skills to master.) All you need, however, is a little technique and know-how.

Once you’ve mastered the basic recipe, add your favorite cheese, diced meat or sautéed veggies for a healthy way to start your morning. Because they’re so versatile, omelets can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Try a satisfying Greek or Western version!

It doesn’t take much to get started—2 eggs, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 teaspoon butter. But you’ll need a nonstick pan for best results. We love the REVERE® CLEAN PAN™ 8″ HARD ANODIZED ALUMINUM NON-STICK FRYING PAN for making delicious omelets. Let’s get started!

Step 1

Crack eggs into a mixing bowl; beat with a whisk until yolks and whites are well incorporated. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 2

In your Revere® Clean Pan™ non-stick frying pan, melt butter over medium-high heat; tilt pan to coat with butter. When the butter stops sizzling, the pan is ready.

Step 3


Pour eggs into pan; they will begin to set around the edges within 30 seconds. With a heat-resistant rubber spatula, gently push one edge of cooked egg into center of pan, while tilting pan in that same direction to allow liquid egg in center to flow to edge of pan. Repeat with other edges until there’s no liquid egg left, about 1 to 2 minutes. Your omelet is done when the bottom is set and edges are cooked through. The top should still be a touch moist but will continue cooking once off the heat.

Step 4

If you’re keeping it basic, skip to Step 5. If adding cheese or other fillings, sprinkle those on now. Recommended measurements: 1/4 to 1/2 cup diced meat or steamed or sautéed veggies; 2 to 3 tablespoons shredded or crumbled cheese.

Step 5


Fold omelet in half and gently slide onto your plate. Best eaten while hot!
