Souffléed Omelet

Added by: on Nov 5th, 2010
“This is like eating a cloud” writes Ann Clark, speaking of her wonderful boozy dessert soufflé in Quick Cuisine, one of my favorite cookbooks. Savory versions are also cloud-like and unbelievably easy to make in return for so much drama. This soufflé-omelet is a great standby for when you .. more >

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Whisk the egg yolks with 2 tablespoons water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a little pepper. Whisk the egg whites until they form firm but moist peaks. Don’t let them get dry and hard or the omelet will not be its best.


Melt the butter or heat the oil in a 10-inch nonstick or cast-iron skillet. When it foams, remove the pan from the heat, fold the whites into the yolks, then slide the whole mound into the skillet. Cook over low heat just until the bottom is set, for 1 minute, then slide the pan into the oven and bake until puffed, golden, and set, 10 to 12 minutes.


If serving plain, grate a little cheese over the top if desired and slide the omelet onto a plate. If adding a cooked vegetable, spoon it over half the omelet, a little to one side of center, then fold the other half over it, slide the whole thing onto an oval plate, and serve.

Cooks' note:
Unless you’re serving the omelet plain, make the vegetable fillings first, since the eggs take only about 12 minutes after the oven is heated.

If you're having guests for Brunch, let the oven do the work while you visit. I chose mushrooms, cheese and bacon but the possibilities are endless!
