Commonly Asked Questions
Do you add milk to omelettes?
You can, however, in our recipe we opted for butter to give it that same creaminess you would get from milk. In fact, we think it gives it a slightly more complex flavor and richness when compared to milk. That being said, you can use whichever you prefer.
Do you add water to omelettes?
Some cooks and chefs choose to add about 2 tablespoons of water (or milk) to their beaten eggs when making omelettes. However, we prefer to stick to good ole’ butter. Water is thought to help disperse your eggs but we find it doesn’t do much for the taste.
Eggs are extremely versatile and with recipes as simple as these, you'll never run out of something to make. While we used chicken in this recipe, you can add practically anything to your omelette. Experiment and find out what some of your favorite flavors are.
