beaten eggs or an egg mixture cooked until just set; may be folded around e.g. ham or cheese or jelly
A dish made with beaten eggs cooked in a frying pan without stirring, flipped over to cook on both sides, and sometimes filled or topped with cheese, chives or other foodstuffs
Origin: From omelette, from alemette, from alemelle, probably derived from lemelle, from lamella.
In cuisine, an omelette or omelet is a dish made from beaten eggs quickly cooked with butter or oil in a frying pan, sometimes folded around a filling such as cheese, vegetables, meat, or some combination of the above. To obtain a fluffy texture, whole eggs or sometimes only egg whites are beaten with a small amount of milk or cream, or even water, the idea being to have "bubbles" of water vapor trapped within the rapidly cooked egg. Some home cooks add baking powder to produce a fluffier omelette; however, this ingredient is sometimes viewed unfavorably by traditionalists.
A type of food dish made from eggs and other types of food, created in various ways using various kitchen appliances, tools and utensils.
Omelette dishes are created in various ways, some us a pan and grill, some use a pan, use some a microwave omelette maker.
