New Video! The Perfect Omelette


People ask me all the time what I cook for myself during the week, and I often feel a little embarrassed to tell them the truth.  I make omelettes.  A lot.  Sometimes four or five nights out of seven, depending on what’s on my calendar.  Life’s been busy lately, and omelettes are the perfect one-pot meal.  I have my blog and my TV projects to attend to 24/7, but from 9-5 (actually 7-7, most days) I also have a day job.  I put on heels and go to an office Monday through Friday, where I oversee marketing and communications for an international software company based near San Francisco.  Someday when I have my own TV show I might quit (sorry, Boss), but for now I have to squeeze out a living in corporate America.

Why omelettes?  Because they’re flexible, easy to make, and perfectly balanced in nutrition.  Eggs offer whole protein and essential fatty acids, and you can fill an omelette with all kinds of vitamin-packed veggies and flavor-rich herbs and seasoning.  And despite what you may have heard, most people can have eggs three or four times a week without triggering cholesterol trouble.  To keep it light, use olive oil instead of butter and go easy on the cheese.

And eggs for dinner is just oh-so-very-European, isn’t it?

Here’s my latest video, a little how-to on the perfect omelette.  Good-quality eggs and a rich, creamy cheese are essential, but you can use whatever veggies you have on hand if you don’t have (or don’t like) mushrooms.  Diced bell peppers, zucchini, or broccoli all work just fine.

  3. Great video and recipe, Miri! Omelets, for some reason, have always intimidated me even though I’ve cooked far more complicated dishes, ha ha. Thank you for making this seem so simple and easy to make. I’ll have to brave up and try your omelets sometime soon. :)

    I really enjoyed the video! And I loved the credits, all you, you, you! So cool. I can appreciate the work that goes in to making videos, not so easy to do. You are great on camera and come across confident and relaxed. You will get your show soon with that kind of talent!

    I made this omellete last night for dinner, for myself. The other two members of my family opted for something else and oh, how they missed out! In the words of Paula Dean, it was “out of this world”. Thanks!

    You actually make omelettes appealing to me! This is a big step, as I’ve hated them ever since my dad made me a kidney omelette when I was eight…

    Hey Miri,
    cool video! You look like a pro in it. Well done.
    Unfortunately I do not like omeletts. I just can’t stand that eggy taste. Well too eggy for me. But you are right, they are too easy.

  21. I posted a while back on how to make an omelette because I find it is not easy at all…it was one of those things that I have always been scared of making. Thank you for your video, I am still learning despite managing to master it a little more each time.
