About egg preparation

– What to do if pieces of shell got into the omelet: the easiest way is to take a little egg mass with a piece of shell with a spoon, move the spoon to the edge of the bowl and, gently prying the piece of shell with your finger, pull it along the edge of the bowl. The second option: wash the cup of the shell thoroughly, and with it, as with a ladle, scoop out the particles of the shell.

– For safety, it is recommended to wash omelette eggs with soap or detergent before breaking, as small parts of the shell can get into the dough and transmit infection to the dish.

– Beat the eggs with a fork or whisk. It is not recommended to use a mixer or blender, because. with active whipping, a foam is formed, which, when frying, spoils the consistency of the omelette.

– In the classic recipe, egg whites and yolks should be beaten separately. In this case, only the protein should be salted, then gently mix it with the yolk. If the recipe uses semolina or flour, they are added when whipping the yolk, then this mixture is added to the salted protein and whipped again.

– The classic proportions of an omelette: for each egg, half an eggshell of milk and half a teaspoon of flour.

About the omelet classic

– In the classic version of the omelet, milk is not added at all, 2 eggs rely on 1 large tablespoon of butter. Break the eggs into a bowl and mix with a fork so that the white and yolk are mixed, but do not beat them. The butter is laid out in a frying pan and melted over medium heat, and as soon as it starts to foam, the egg mass is poured. The mass is mixed intensively in the first minute of frying, in the second minute – every 15 seconds, and then fry without stirring. The finished omelette is thin – when serving, it can be folded 2-3 times, putting the filling inside. The filling can be cheese, herbs, tomatoes, bacon. It is advisable to grind and slightly heat the filling so that it lies evenly between the halves of the omelette and the omelet warms up the filling due to the internal temperature and does not cool down.

– In France, they came up with the degree of frying of an omelet cooked without milk in butter: baveuse (lightly fried), moelleuse (soft fried) and a point (well fried). Fry the baveuse omelet for 2 minutes, moelleuse for 4 minutes, a point for 6 minutes.

– Sometimes it happens that in a frying pan an omelet made of eggs and butter is fried unevenly: one half of the mass is almost ready, and the other is still liquid. This happens if the bottom of the pan is uneven or the burner distributes heat unevenly. In this case, it is necessary to level the finished part of the mass on one half of the pan, and continue to mix the liquid part in the other pan – and at the end combine both parts. The mash will not take more than half a minute or a minute, so you don’t have to worry about the uniformity of the omelette frying.

– The cost of products for making a classic 2-egg omelette is 23 rubles. (average in Moscow as of May 2016)
