How to Make a Rolled Omelet
George Weld says:
- When you scramble eggs for an omelet, you want them to be completely homogenized. At the same time, you don't want to beat too much air into them. Use a fork instead of a whisk to beat them till they're well-blended and the whites are scrambled into the yolks.
- A nonstick crepe pan works well, but you can use any nonstick pan; use a little bit of fat in the pan but not too much.
- Blend eggs with one hand while shaking pan with the other, breaking up places where egg is starting to congeal with a fork. If eggs are congealing too fast, lift pan off heat.
