When I was living in the United States my host mom often made eggs for breakfast. Even though Italians are more used to cappuccino and croissants, I soon started to enjoy having omelettes. Sometimes we would joke around saying “tonight I’m having breakfast for dinner”, meaning that we would make those delicious omelettes filled with cheese and ham.
When I came back to Italy I brought my love for omelettes to my Italian family. Omelettes are simply made with eggs and milk, but they can be delicious as they can be filled with various ingredients, from veggies to cheese, meat or even fish. Today I reveal you my favorite filling, are you ready to take notes?
If you want to make a giant omelette with 6 eggs, you can use a 28 cm pan, but if you want it just for yourself, I suggest a smaller one, which ranges from 18 to 22 cm. The bigger your pan is, the thinner your omelette will be. An omelette takes approximately 3 to 5 minutes to cook; if you overcook it, it will turn out too dry, so keep an eye on your watch. Lastly, making a great omelette takes a lot of practice, so don’t discourage if your first attempts are a disaster, you’ll get better, I promise!
