The Omelette Guy's 40 Second Omelette

The Omelette Guy's 40 Second Omelette
Cooking Time:
40 seconds
Serves: 1
In my book you can’t beat a good omelette, and for me, the boss omelette maker is The Omelette Guy. We’re pretty good mates so he’s let me share his recipe with you – get ready for heaven on a plate. The classic, foolproof method to produce a great omelette in 40 seconds. Just be sure to use Farmer Brown eggs – good eggs do make a difference. If you’re cooking more than one omelette, then simply add multiples of 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons of water to a large bowl, season and whisk until blended. Use one standard half cup ladle of the mixture and cook as instructed.
Omelette fillings: Try using combinations of sliced ham, cheeses, sliced mushrooms, sliced green peppers, chopped onions, shrimp, cottage cheese, cooked bacon, cooked chicken, sliced black olives, salsa etc

  1. Whisk eggs, water and seasoning together in a bowl until blended.
  2. In a 26cm or similar pan heat oil, butter and margarine until very hot but not smoking. Pour in egg mixture.
  3. Use a spatula or egg slice to push the cooking mixture from the edge towards the centre of the pan. Then tilt the pan so that the runny mixture fills the hole you’ve made.
  4. Repeatedly dig holes and fill them around the pan until the mixture is no longer runny, but still moist. Takes about 20 seconds.
  5. Sprinkle your chosen fillings on the left side of the omelette if you’re right handed and the right if you’re left handed. Then fold the unfilled side of the omelette over the filled side with the spatula.
  6. Set aside the spatula. Take the pan in your favoured hand and a plate in the other, tip the pan upside down so the omelette falls gently onto the plate.

Garnish and serve. Egg-ceptional!
