How to flip an omelet

I won't lie to you. I do not know my way around an omelet all that well.

Sad, isn't it?

When Rachel asked me for tips on flipping an omelet last week I felt like a fraud. My omelets always come out a little funky. But do you know who isn't a fraud in the least?

Julia Child.

Or how about good old Alton Brown?

Hopefully now we are all armed to build a better omelet. I plan to try myself next week. I'll let you know how it goes.

Oh, and one more thing:

If your omelet doesn't turn out, just forget the flipping and make it a frittata! Sometimes the difference between a success and a disaster is all in how you label things. ;)


  1. great! One of the things on my cooking list is an omelet--have to gear up for it! : )

  2. I'm definitely having an omelet this weekend!! YUM!
