Video Demo: How to make an Omelet | Kale and Mushroom Omelet

Here is a step by step video on how to make a basic omelet. The technique takes a few tries before you perfect it, but becomes second nature quickly. The hardest part I think, is knowing when to flip, not the flip itself. You can add anything you like, I’ve kept it simple here for the sake of focusing on the technique, rather than creativity.

  • Eggs, 3 ea
  • Butter, ~1 tbl
  • Button Mushrooms, 1 ea, very small dice
  • Kale, 1/4 cup, chopped finely
  • Parmesan Cheese, ~1/4 cup
  • Zhug (optional, for garnish)

Heat pan over medium heat, add butter, and saute mushrooms until tender, seasoning with salt. Add kale and saute one minute. Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk with a fork, then add to pan. Turn heat to medium low, and, with a rubber spatula, lift the sides of the cooked egg and allow the runny egg to go underneath and cook. Keep doing this, tilting the pan and lifting with the spatula until there is no more runny egg. Continue to leave the omelet in the pan over medium low heat, until it becomes very loose in the pan, and flip to cook the other side. Don’t try to flip it if it doesn’t feel loose enough in the pan. Once flipped, turn off the heat, and add cheese to one side, then, using the spatula, be very careful to slowly fold the omelet in half. If you are careless, it will break at the “seam.” Plate up and garnish with zug, pesto, or anything else you like.
