Notes

Tips:

  1. Do one egg at a time. This will insure evenly sized omelettes.
  2. Keep the heat low and stay attentive to the cooking. I use my spatula to lift the edge so I can see the bottom of the omelette to see how it is cooking.
  3. Have all you ingredients ready before starting the cooking process.
  4. Above all else have fun. If the omelette flops make it a scramble.
  5. remember if you don’t succeed the first time, try and try again!
