Tips and Suggestions
- To deal with messing flipping of omelettes, try this great trick. Set your oven on broil before you start to cook the omelette. If it's a conventional oven, rather than a gas stove, you'll want to give it time to heat up. This ONLY works with a frying pan that can go into the oven - like a cast iron pan. When the bottom of the omelette is nice and brown, pop it in the oven for about two minutes, and you'll have a perfect omelette every time.
I hope you will like the omelette. Enjoy everyone! Happy eating!
