Some people like adding milk to the eggs, while others think it makes the eggs tougher.

When the eggs are foamy, pour them into the pan, tilt them to let runny eggs hit the edges. (source)

You can use 2 or 3 eggs, depending on how hungry you are.

Melt the butter first before adding it to the skillet.

How do you make an omelet that doesn’t fall apart?

To make an omelet that won’t fall apart, don’t poke the eggs with a spatula while they cook.

Let them cook and solidify for about 30 seconds so that they won’t fall apart when you fold them over.

Gently nudge the edges of the egg towards the center of the pan with a spatula, making sure that it doesn’t stick to the pan.

Do you flip omelets?

Yes, you should.

First, put the butter in the pan and heat it.

Next, fold the omelet in half with a turner (or something that can help).

Finally, quickly turn the pan upside down and slide or flip it onto a plate.

Serve it right away.

How do you make omelets stay together?

You make omelets stay together by melting butter in a skillet and adding the eggs.

You should turn down the heat to medium as soon as you add the eggs. (source)

How long do you cook an omelet before flipping?

You should turn the omelet with a spatula after 1 to 2 minutes. (source)

Why is my omelet dry?

The omelet is dry because you put in too much salt.

Season the eggs with pepper and salt just before cooking, not before you mix in the other ingredients.

Is it OK to eat an undercooked omelet?

Yes, it is OK.

But you don’t need to worry about food poisoning because the egg will not get you sick if the egg is cooked less than well.

When you are cooking an omelet, mix it so that all of the egg touches the pan.

Then when the omelet is mostly done, tilt the pan so that raw eggs touch the sides for lacy edges.

Can you eat a 2-day-old omelet?

Yes, you can, if you keep it in the fridge.

You should be able to eat an omelet the next day.

If it is cold, you can store it in the fridge for up to 4 days.

It can also be frozen for up to 4 months if it is cooked and stored in an airtight container or ziplock bag.


In summary, water is the best egg substitute for omelets.

Use water in place of egg with a 1:1 substitution ratio.

Or you can use vegetable oil instead.

You may have to make a few adjustments to your favorite recipes if they call for eggs or other high-protein ingredients like cheese but it’s worth experimenting.
