Making an omelet can be easy once you get the knack of flipping or turning the omelet in your pan. Have you ever wondered how they flip eggs in the pan? It is all in the wrist action and you might have to try it a dozen times to get it but once you do, you will wonder why you’ve never done it this way before.

Start out over a plate or garbage can. Make sure that you have enough oil or butter in the pan that when you move the pan the eggs freely move. Shake the pan and get the eggs to the front of the pan. Then make a forward motion with the pan and flip those eggs. It will happen so fast you will be amazed. Omelets are done the same way. You’ll be an omelet king or queen in no time with practice! You see chefs on tv using this motion all of the time when cooking. It is easier than it looks! If all else fails you can pour the egg on a flat griddle and make a folded omelet. I bet you though a dozen eggs and you’ll be doing it too.

You’re going to see I add water to my eggs instead of milk. A chef taught me that once and it makes your eggs lighter than milk or cream will.
