This is a wonderful fluffy Omelet. You can add a variety of fillings. My husbands favorite is simply cheddar cheese and green scallions. When I have company, I put out bowls of different fillings like diced bell peppers, mushrooms, red onion, etc.and I let them choose there own. Great way for kids to feel included and also get their veggies! (5 Lg Eggs makes two large portions, or three medium portions) Have fun and enjoy!
- Have a Lg skillet with a lid.
- Crack the 5 eggs into a two cup measuring cup.
- add three tbl Butter milk.
- One tsp Baking powder.
- Salt and Pepper to taste , Whisk thoroughly and set aside.
- Heat skillet on Low, melt a little butter or Olive Oil in pan.
- Butter taste better, but I use Olive Oil most of the time.
- After eggs have sat for at least five minute add 1/2 to 3/4 cup
- of grated cheddar cheese ( set some aside for top of Omelet )Now add the chopped Scallions, I add three Lg scallions to five eggs.
- Whisk thoroughly and pour into a warm pan, put lid on and leave on low.
- The Omelet will fluff up nicely, don't over cook.
- When it is just a little runny still you can add your choice of fillings, do not over fill it will be hard to fold.
- Put the lid back on for aprox. Two minute or untill surface of eggs is not runny.
- It is your choice how soft or hard you like your eggs.
- Now fold over and put on plate, top with a little cheese let melt and serve.
Really good flavor, I like the idea of using buttermilk and the paking powder did the job in making it rise. The only warning I would give on this recipe is that it assumes the cook knows their way around an omelet. "Flip and serve" is a lot easier said than done if you are inexperienced!
Three, 5-Star votes across the board! Absolutely delicious omelette and I'm not even an omelette fan. I picked this recipe because my boys had come back from Mexico raving about the omelettes they had there, so I thought, nice easy weeknight dinner or weekend brunch. Wasn't feeling the best today so weeknight dinner it was. So easy to make and it was a huge hit. I didn't have buttermilk so used two tbsp milk and 1 tbsp my own yogurt, used extra large free range eggs fresh from the farm so it made lots. I didn't have cheddar so used mozza to mix in and on top the boys and added ricotta to mine. I fried up some bacon pieces and cut up some veggies for everyone to pick what they liked. Also had some chicken filling leftover from kreplach the other night. Definitely a keeper for an easy meal anytime of the day. Ds10 even asked for more and his was huge! LOL Thanks Lady in love :) for a delicious meal! Made and thoroughly enjoyed for PAC Spring 2011. :D
