Tips

  • Beat the eggs well. Stir the eggs before putting them in the pan. To achieve a smooth texture and even color, mix the eggs until they are evenly golden with no egg whites left. In this way, the egg white and yolk are completely combined.
  • You can use easy- melting cheddar cheese, mozzarella or gruyere instead of kashari cheese.
  • Cook the omelet over medium-low heat. Cooking on high heat can cause the eggs to burn quickly and become dry.
  • Do not mix the omelet in the pan. Lift the edge of the omelet with the help of a spatula, turn if bubbles begin to form, and cook the other side.
  • Use freshly grated cheese. Thanks to this, the cheese melts faster and better.
  • Do not overfill the omelet. Otherwise, the omelet may become difficult to fold or the omelet may tear.
  • Spread butter on the omelet.
  • You can add soft vegetables such as peppers, tomatoes, and green onions.
  • You can add bacon, sausage, or salami.
