1 tbsp Clarified Butter
Fillings As Needed
Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Fully cook any meat and blanch or cook any vegetable that will be incorporated into the omelet.
2. Heat an omelet pan over moderately high heat and then add clarified butter.
3. Whisk eggs together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
4. Pour the eggs into the pan and stir until they begin to set, approximately 10 minutes.
5. Pull cooked egg from the sides of the pan towards the center, allowing the raw egg to run underneath. Continue doing so for 20-30 seconds.
6. Spoon any fillings on top of the eggs or add any other garnishes.
7. When cooked as desired, flip one side of the omelet toward the center with a spatula. Slide the omelet onto the serving plate so that it lands folded in thirds with the seam underneath.
8. Spoon any sauce or additional filling on top, garnish as desired and serve immediately.
