My First Attempt at an Omelet!
I have something embarrassing to admit: I have never in my life made an omelet. It seems like such a tricky thing to make; there are so many things that could go wrong! This weekend, I finally decided to face my fears and (attempt to) make one. With my How to Make an Omelet article by my side, I was ready and raring to go!
I started by picking out the ingredients I wanted: spinach, onions, mushrooms, and Swiss cheese sounded good. I chopped up the onions and mushrooms into bite-sized pieces and left the spinach whole.
Next, I combined 3 eggs and a bit of milk in a bowl and whisked them together with a fork.
Now that the prep work was, done, it was time to begin! I coated a small pan with extra virgin olive oil and started to saute the mushrooms and onions.
When they were almost done cooking, I threw in the spinach and cooked it until it wilted.
After the spinach was wilted and the onions and mushrooms were cooked, I turned the heat up and poured in the egg mixture.
Now here’s the tricky part. I had to let the eggs cook, while also gently pulling back the edges of the omelet so the uncooked egg would move to the pan’s surface and cook. I was somewhat successful in doing this, but my eggs ended up staying a little bit runny.
Next, I added the cheese to one side of the omelet. I didn’t have shredded cheese, but sliced cheese did just fine.
Finally, it was time for the old fliperoo. I didn’t have much faith in myself for this part. There are many ways you can do this. Some people say to pour the omelet onto a plate and as it’s falling, use the pan to flip one side over and close it up. I just chose to use my spatula and close it that way. It kind of worked, but my omelet split a little down the side.
I let the omelet sit for a minute over low heat so the cheese would melt, then I removed it from the heat and dumped it onto a plate.
So how was it? It wasn’t very flavorful, as I completely forgot to add any salt, pepper, or any other seasonings, but it tasted like an omelet, and that was the goal! I was pretty pleased with my very first attempt, and I look forward to many more!
