While food enthusiasts love to try and experiment with new recipes, the key to becoming a truly great chef is to master the classics. And what’s more “classic” than the perfect egg dish? Whether over-easy, scrambled, or as a simple omelet, we’d like to learn about your take on a classic egg recipe you love.
I was recently sent the Calphalon Classic 2-piece fry pan set to try out and come up with some fun recipes! These pans feature a dual-layer nonstick for easy food release and are made from beautiful, durable hard-anodized aluminum. With it being National Egg day, it was perfect to use these pans to try our some egg dishes. The flat, wide bottom and sloping sides make the eggs heat evenly and the nonstick finish is perfect for flipping the eggs and not having to worry about them sticking to the side! Totally the best pan for omelettes!
I do not own a dishwasher, but these pans are dishwasher safe as well! Hand washing is recommended to preserve the luster of the stainless steel. These fry pans are intended for gas, electric, electric ring, halogen, glass ceramic, or induction stove tops, and can be used with nylon, coated or wooden utensils.
How to Make a Classic Omelette
You will need the following ingredients:
- Shredded Cheese
- Red Hot
- Salt and Pepper
Crack two eggs (per omelette) into a small bowl and whisk with a fork until well beaten. Add 1 tablespoon milk, a shake or two of Red Hot, then salt and pepper to taste.
For taste, heat butter in your Calphalon Classic fry pan on high heat until very hot (approximately 30 seconds). Once the butter bubbles and browns, slowly pour in the egg mixture. Tilt the pan to spread the egg mixture evenly. Once the middle bubbles, tilt the pan again and shift the egg mixture toward the outer edges of the omelette.
With a spatula, gently lift the edge and let the egg mixture run underneath. Continue cooking until the mixture holds together. While the middle is still a little runny add your filling ingredients (cheese, onion, bacon or whatever you prefer). Cook briefly to melt the cheese
Fold 1/3 of the omelette over the middle. Shake the pan gently to slide the omelette to the edge of the pan and allow it to roll off on your dish! Serve with Red Hot, ketchup, etc.!
