11. Julia Child did an omelette show with a variety of creative ways to make it more interesting.
Here’s her omelette episode on youtube:
12. Not me but my partner’s father. He is a Chinese immigrant and relatively conservative who did not react well to his son (my partner) cooking an omelette. He partially came to terms with it but when I came into the picture he was convinced I was a white devil only with his son for his improperly cooked omelettes. Two years later his wife died and he moved in with us. He latched onto me emotionally because his son is emotionally distant and we now get along famously and he and my grandpa are best friends now. They go ice fishing. He also loves my omelettes aside from constantly reminding me white people eat too much butter.
13. When I discovered sheet pan eggs. Whisk a dozen eggs and some milk. Pour’em in a like 12 × 17 inch pan. Add ham, bacon, sausage, cheese, veggies, etc. Bake at 350° for about 15 minutes.
14. Desperation. We were out of milk so I used sour cream instead. So much stiffer and easy to make. It’s how I made my one and only picture-perfect omelette.
15. Omelette station at a hotel brunch buffet. They cooked the onions and mushrooms first. Before then I had made my omelettes by cooking the egg first and then adding the fillings.
16. By accepting that scrambled eggs will be just fine, and there’s no need to try to be fancy today.
17. My dad took time out of his day off to teach me when I was about 10. I’ve made exactly 1 bad omelette since then. He recently suggested putting the omelette into a tortilla.
18. Gary, the Sodexo omelette guy at my university cafeteria. I’ve never seen someone put so much care and precision into egg craft. Every omelette I make is a prayer to Gary and a step closer to one day being able to emulate his masterful technique.
19. Let me just say this:
20. Adding crabmeat and sausage to it.
21. Instead of eggs, I use bananas.
22. Not me, but my father was brought up by moderately anti omellete Christian parents, and assumed that everyone held the same views about omelettes too. However, he once went to a (young chef) youth event at which they (for whatever reason) asked how many people in the room were fine with omelettes and everyone except him put their hands up. At that point, he says, he suddenly realised that there was a possibility of his parents were wrong and that he had to rethink his own views.
23. Haven’t found a way to make them from tofu yet, but scrambled tofu tastes exactly like eggs.
24. Ramen omelette is the superior way spice up breakfast.
