1. Shopping List for your Vegetable Omelette

I’ve left you a handy list for your supermarket shopping. You will need:

When buying eggs, please look carefully at the packaging. Organic eggs taste better, I love Demeter eggs, with them you buy yourself a good feeling at the same time.

2. Selecting the Right Pan for Omelette Preparation

I don’t know your equipment and would still like to achieve the best possible result for you. In some pans, the egg dish doesn’t work so well. Here are some tips and notes:

– Use a coated pan, the egg dish is guaranteed to succeed!
– Avoid a “normal” stainless steel pan, the egg tends to stick!
– Use a burnt iron pan that has already achieved a non-stick effect!

Don’t be put off, even star chefs swear by coated pans. I’ll be offering a pots and pans shopping guide soon, so if you’re interested, get in touch!

New stainless steel pan
High quality stainless steel pan with non-stick effect without coating. I have this pan in continuous use right now and am very satisfied!

3. How many Eggs fit in the Pan for a successful Omelette?

Because you won’t find the answer to this question in almost any recipe, I’d rather write it down for you. If you put too many eggs in the pan, you won’t be able to turn the omelette well. Two to a maximum of three eggs have proven to be effective. Use a medium or small pan, with small pans please reduce the number of eggs to a maximum of two.

At the same time, you can choose the round shape or the classic half-moon shape. The graphic below helps with this consideration. The appeal of the recipe below is the half-moon shape: the vegetables hidden in the egg with cheese and basil develop great flavours. –> Please try it out!

Which pan size is right for your omelette?

Always prepare and share egg dishes with lots of love!

I like to use oil and butter in the preparation. You can also use homemade and heat-resistant ghee or clarified butter. In general, pay attention to the temperature. Cooker setting 2 of 3 or 6 or 7 of 9 is usually sufficient. Avoid the power setting for induction, otherwise the pan will get too hot.

You can keep the finished omelettes warm in the oven at 100° C for a short time. This has proved useful when guests are coming or you are preparing several egg dishes for your family.
