An omelette is the ideal meal when you need something quick. All you need are two to three eggs (depending on your appetite), a little butter and salt and pepper. Unlike scrambled eggs, the egg mixture is not pushed back and forth in the pan, but baked until it sets, i.e. becomes solid. Then you can either fill the omelette with other ingredients – such as diced ham, cheese or mushrooms – or fold it over and enjoy it straight away. We’ll tell you here how you can create the perfect, fluffy omelette.

Omelette or frittata – what’s the difference?

A frittata is also a type of omelette, or more precisely the Italian interpretation of the egg dish. The main ingredient here is eggs and you can also combine the frittata with other foods. With one difference: the frittata is not folded in the middle, but either cooked completely from one side or turned. A delicious and easy frittata recipe awaits you further down in the article.

Are omelettes good for weight loss?

Yes absolutely. After all, eggs are an excellent source of protein and they should end up on your plate every day if you are losing weight. Protein-rich foods stimulate your metabolism and keep you full for a long time – an ideal combination for losing weight. You can find the right fat burner recipes here. The dish is also perfect for a low-carb and keto diet because eggs contain no carbohydrates.

An omelette is quick to prepare and incredibly versatile

If you want to save additional calories and fat, you can also conjure up an egg white omelette. To make it, you only need the egg white, which you separate from the yolk. Even better: get liquid egg whites, for example from Pumperlgsund. This is easy to dose, lasts for months and no egg yolk ends up in the trash. Why should you leave out the egg yolk at all? The yolk is the high-calorie part of the egg with 66 calories and 6 grams of fat, while the egg white contains only 16 calories and 0.1 grams of fat. You can read here why the combination of egg white and egg yolk is optimal for your body.

Basic recipe for the perfect omelette

As already mentioned, for a basic omelet (1 portion) you only need a few basic ingredients:

  • 3 Owner
  • 1 pinch each of salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter or clarified butter
  • optional: 1 dash of milk or cream*

*The milk or cream will make your omelette even more tender and fluffy, but it is not a must.

And this is how you prepare it:

  1. Crack eggs into a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix well with a fork or whisk.
  2. Heat the butter in a not too large, coated pan with a 4 to 6 centimeter high, round edge (highest setting) until the butter foams. Swirl the pan and spread butter all over.
  3. Shortly before the butter starts to brown, turn the heat down to medium and let the egg mixture slide in. Now swirl the pan back and forth in a circular motion so that the egg is well distributed in the pan.
  4. Now use a spatula or silicone spatula to carefully push the egg mixture into the middle. Don’t tear it like you would with scrambled eggs, just spread it well. Then let the mixture set so that it is slightly browned at the bottom and not completely cooked through at the top.
  5. Loosen the omelette from all sides with a silicone spatula (or spatula), lift the pan and let the omelette slide to one side. Due to the high edge of the pan, you now only have to help a little with the spatula to fold the omelet over in the middle.

Tip from the food editors: After point 4, add a handful of grated cheese to your omelette and let it slowly melt, your cheese omelette is ready.

Would you rather prepare a frittata and completely flip your omelet once? Then use a plate to help you. Let the omelette slide onto the plate, now turn the pan over and “invert” it over the plate. Then hold both together and quickly turn them around so that the egg patty ends up back in the pan – just the other way around.

Tool-Tipp: Turning is even easier with such an ingenious double pan.

How to stuff omelettes?

You can fill or combine your omelet or frittata with all sorts of foods. True to the motto: It doesn’t work, it doesn’t exist! Because whatever tastes good is allowed.

Because omelettes are perfect for using up leftovers. If you make your own raclette, pizza or wraps with friends, you’ll usually end up with a lot of chopped vegetables, grated cheese or diced ham left over. You can use them in an omelette the next morning, so less food ends up in the bin.

Ideas for omelet fillings:

  • (Boiled) ham & cheese
  • Champignons & Speck
  • Crab & Dill
  • Spinach & cheese / feta
  • Raw ham cubes & red onions
  • Shrimp & cherry tomatoes
  • Paprika, Olives & Feta
  • Bacon
  • Broccoli & Cheese
  • Smoked salmon & chives
  • Tomatoes, Mozzarella & Basil

Whether with cheese, vegetables, ham or mushrooms: Omelettes are very versatile

What is a Farmer’s Omelet?

You may also know a farmer’s omelette as a farmer’s breakfast. It’s basically a kind of leftover meal because you can fill your omelette with leftover ingredients from the day before. The classic is potatoes. You can combine them wonderfully with bacon or ham.

That’s how it’s done: Slice one or two potatoes from the day before, then fry them in a teaspoon of butter until crispy with a little bacon and diced onions. Salt and pepper. Whisk two eggs in a bowl and then pour them over the browned potatoes, let them set, then push or fold the omelet together. You can also add a few pickles if you like.

Mix the vegetables well in a bowl with the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and let them steep briefly.
  2. Separate eggs or use pasteurized egg whites: Mix the egg whites with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Heat butter in a pan until it bubbles. Then add the egg whites. Let the mixture set over medium heat. Then fold over with a spatula and continue to fry briefly. Remove from the pan and enjoy with the raw vegetable salad.
