French Omelette

I feel silly blogging about an omelette, I mean how hard can it be? I never thought my omelettes were anything special, good - but not great.

Until I came across Julia Childs video on making a French Omelette. I even went searching at Walmart for just the right pan that would do the job as she explains. I love my omelets now. LOL

This one has sharp cheddar cheese that I shredded, diced ham and a few cut up mushroom pieces. Onions and possibly a few other items should be cooked ahead of time, but most everything else will just cook from the heat of the omelette. The video stops after Julia shows a french omelette with no fillings, but these are just added right after you let it set a little and after the first initial shakes of the pan. The ovens have obviously changed since than as I could never use the highest setting on my stove or it will burn in seconds lol, but I did have it as high as I thought it should be knowing my stove.

Her video:
Maybe next omelette creation will be spanish, its made with potatoes, oil, onions, and eggs and is very!!! different and made differently from the French omelette.

  1. Hi Mary, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind words! I hope you like the zucchini noodle dish. Great work on your blog. I must say, I never make omelets so beautiful... then again I've never taken Julia's lessons!
