Plain Omelet Recipe

Ingredients for Plain Omelet Recipe

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • A dash of white pepper or paprika


  1. Beat the egg yolks very light; add the salt, pepper, and cream.
  2. Fold in the whites of the eggs, beaten very stiff. The mixture must not stand after the whites of the eggs are folded in.
  3. Boil the butter in an omelet-pan and add the mixture.
  4. As soon as it begins to stiffen, draw it away from the edges of the pan or gently slide a knife under the center to allow the uncooked egg to reach the hot pan and cook evenly.
  5. When the omelet is a rich golden brown, fold over and serve at once on a very hot plate.
  6. This quantity is for two people.
  7. Double the above quantity may be made in one omelet, but if a larger amount is necessary, it is better to make two or three omelets rather than attempt cooking the whole quantity in one.
