Eggs are superior to any breakfast meal. A versatile ingredient that you can fry, boil, scramble, and poach. In this recipe, we’re bringing back a morning classic with a flavorful touch. Omelette or omelet is a dish widely known for its folded appearance with fillings like ham, onions, chives, spring onion, and many more. However, this egg-based dish also has its own culinary variations. Japan prefers Omurice, an omelette perfectly balanced on a bed of fried rice topped with ketchup. The Italian Frittata deviated from the fold and, instead, mixes their fillings with the egg to be cooked in an iron skillet. For this chicken omelette recipe, we’re starting with a western-style base filled with chicken shreds and fresh vegetables for an added texture. 

A nutritious and high-protein dish, it will definitely keep you sustained throughout the day. The tomatoes and spinach contribute a mildly sweet and juicy addition to the salted meal. This omelette comes in quick and easy steps that do not require a complicated fold. It’s best to leave that to the professionals. In this recipe, you can throw in your own toppings like herbs, cheese, cilantro, and whatever else you desire. 

Omelette is a fun dish to make where you might even have a recipe of your own by the end of it. If you want to try other egg-based dishes for a different occasion, we have a recipe for Poached Eggs with Sauteed Spinach and Yogurt sauce you can try. So, grab your eggs, and let’s start frying!

Commonly Asked Questions

How to make fluffy omelette?

To make it fluffier, you can add one egg white to two whole eggs. Whip it well for an airy and fluffier result.

How do you flip an omelette without it falling apart?

What you can do is use a plate to cover the pan, flip it over, and place the uncooked part back to the pan. Or, use a big spatula (or two) to gently flip it over. But, before flipping your omelette, you need to make sure that the eggs aren’t stuck to the bottom. If they are, they definitely wouldn’t flip and you’d make a bigger mess. So, shake the pan slightly to see if it moves, then flip.
