It is not enough just to break eggs to make a good omelet! Don’t get me wrong, even if this great classic seems very easy and quick to prepare, there are still some mistakes to avoid so as not to have a rubbery, sticky, too salty, or bland omelet on the plate. And since it’s the key to a balanced breakfast, you have to bring together all the ingredients and take the right steps not to miss it!
Of course, omelet recipes are endless. Everyone can let their creativity speak and garnish it according to their desires. Apart from breakfast, the omelet can naturally serve as a complete meal for lunch or dinner, cooked in a frying pan or in the oven. But, we have to admit, we don’t all manage, at least not always, to get it perfectly soft and runny. What if we told you that all you need to do is add a very ordinary little ingredient to your eggs to make all the difference. You’ll never have thought of it, but you’ll definitely be amazed at the texture you’ll get.
Our advice: but before revealing this secret ingredient, make sure you don’t make the common mistake of directly beating the eggs out of the fridge. Instead, keep them at room temperature for a few minutes. This is the best way to preserve their flavor.
What is this secret ingredient?
Although each person deploys their know-how to prepare a good omelet, frequently using the same ingredients, some tricks can change the game. So your omelet will not only be good, it will be perfect! For your eggs to be delicately fluffy, the secret often lies in adding a little melted butter, fresh cream, baking powder or milk. At least, omelet specialists always have one of these ingredients on hand to enhance their recipe.
And today, we invite you to test a preparation based on natural yogurt to drink. The omelet will only be more tender and unctuous. For more flavor, you can even add cheese and green onions (chives).
Good to know: when beating the eggs with the fork, whisk them vigorously so that your omelet is lighter and more pleasant to taste. When you notice a fine white foam that gradually forms, that’s a very good sign. Finally, the other secret also lies in the cooking: cook your omelet over low heat and add a few drops of olive oil, this will prevent the butter from browning quickly and making your eggs drier.
Recipe for a fluffy omelet with yogurt
- 4 eggs
- A few green onions
- 50g cheese (hard)
- 50 ml drinking yogurt
- Sunflower oil
- Salt and black pepper
Method of preparation :
Put the eggs in a bowl, add salt and pepper (to taste), then mix well with a fork (preferably rather than the whisk which reduces the softness of the egg). Then add the yogurt and beat a little more. Grate the cheese and add it to the bowl, followed by the finely chopped green onions.
Heat the non-stick pan with a teaspoon of sunflower oil. Pour in the mixture from the bowl. It would be best if your utensil was covered with a lid. Cook your omelet over low heat for 5-7 minutes or until cooked to your preference. Fold it with a wooden spatula and you’re done!
The little trick: as you know, it’s all about cooking. If the omelet is overcooked, it ends up becoming dry and if it is undercooked, it looks too runny. So what’s the middle ground for her to be delicately slobbery? Watch your omelet and watch how it cooks. When the bottom part looks cooked and the top still shows some moisture, it’s time to remove it from the heat.
