The Secret to a Fluffy Omelet



I am planning on a big breakfast with family and one of the favorite things to create are individual omelets, made to order, which prompted a gentleman to recently ask, “Do you have any tips for making fluffy omelets?”


Omelets are awesome, especially when made fresh, fluffy and to order!

The best part is they are fast and easy to create – and even better if you add a chef’s secret ingredient – Cream of Tartar! Cream of tartar will give you the light fluffiness professionally made omelets are famous for. Here is my “go-to” recipe for such occasions – Enjoy!

Fast ‘n’ Fluffy Omelets

2 eggs

1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 tablespoon butter

1 dash of salt

1 dash of pepper


In a small skillet over medium heat, melt butter.

In a medium-sized bowl, crack eggs then add cream of tartar. With the bowl at an angle, use a whisk to beat eggs for almost 2 minutes. This will get air into the eggs and the cream of tartar will make them fluffy.

When the butter starts to bubble and sizzle, add eggs to the pan. Let the eggs cook undisturbed until it starts to set or forms a cooked bottom layer.

Move cooked eggs to the middle of the pan with a spatula so the uncooked eggs can spill over to ends of the pan. When the eggs are still pretty runny but almost cooked, salt and pepper them to taste, then flip them to cook until desired doneness – Enjoy!
