omelette-making class

image

We made omelettes this week with my high school students.  Most, if not all, of the students had never eaten, or even heard of omelettes before.  They were a little skeptical at first, but really got into it when the skillet came out.

Each student made their own personal omelette, adding their own flavor.

The usually boisterous classroom fell silent, as the kids enjoyed their individual creations.  YUm!

Here is the recipe we used:

3 eggs

dash of milk

salt and pepper

Whisk to combine.  Pour into a hot buttered skillet and cook until almost dry.  Add your choice of filling, flip in half and serve.

Fillings we used:

red and yellow bell pepper

spinach

bacon

onion

cheese

salsa

    Great job, Melissa! Why is an omelette so unusual for these kids? Cultural differences? Or are Americans in the heartland not eating enough eggs? It’s such a great and inexpensive after-school snack.

    I’m surprised the kids had never heard of omelettes! So common and on every restaurant breakfast menu!

    Anyway, I’m impressed you and the kids made these. I don’t attempt making omelettes myself. I find the egg always comes out overcooked or undercooked and I can’t seem to perfect it! Good job!
