The Tease
The perfect omelet she will love.
Time to Make
10 minutes prep and cooking
Omelets are universal and there are hundreds of different ways to prepare them. Here are some of the most popular omelets on the market. The Denver omelet, AKA the Western omelet. A very basic, yet scrumptious blend of diced ham, onions and bell peppers. Cheese is optional. The Spanish omelet. A little bit of prep work will be involved for this one. Fried potatoes and finely diced onions are the main ingredients. Garlic and cheese are optional. Egg white omelet. If an egg has too much cholesterol and fat for your tastes, try an egg white omelet. An egg white omelet is very popular and healthy. Egg white omelets can be prepared the same way that most other omelets are—just without the yolk.

• 3 eggs

• 1-2 Tablespoons of clarified butter or melted whole unsalted butter

• Salt and Pepper

• Favorite filling

• Medium mixing bowl

• Wire whisk

• 8 inch non stick, oven-proof pan

• Heat resistant rubber spatula

Preparation (Do it!)
1. Preheat the broiler (high)

2. In a mixing bowl, whisk 3 eggs with a wire whisk. Set aside.

3. Lightly coat the bottom of an 8 inch nonstick oven-proof pan with melted clarified butter (Unsalted butter which has been melted and skimmed of milk solids. Also known as gee) or use unsalted butter. Clarified butter doesn't brown.

4. Place the pan over medium-high heat (medium heat if using whole unsalted butter). Pour the whisked eggs and use a heat-resistant spatula to stir the eggs as they cook, holding and swirling the pan with with your left hand while stirring with the spatula in your right hand.

5. Once the eggs look like they are setting, stop stirring. Push down the edges of the omelet with the spatula to make sure they are even with the bottom of the pan, immediately remove from the heat and place under the preheated broiler for about 2 minutes. If using a filling, instead of cooking the omelet under the broiler for 2 minutes, cook it for 30 to 60 seconds. Place your filling in the center of the omelet and place back under the broiler until warmed, or the cheese (if using) is melted.

6. Grasping the pan with your left hand, tilt it over a serving plate, using the rubber, spatula to help fold the omelet, and serve.
