      @Joe Don: Unsure what kind of analogy you're trying to present there ... Bacon is made from pigs. Pigs eat herbs and mushrooms (just like chickens), plus a lot of other stuff. So, pigs are at a higher level on the pecking order than chickens.

      @Nancy J: Yes, it's extra work to keep it light and fluffy, yet well-formed into a nice omelet. It's much easier just to stir up the mix for scrambled eggs. The result is about the same, except for the firmer, drier, consistent texture. You should ask hubby to serve you breakfast in bed every Sunday because he makes omelets at a level between a restaurant cook and a culinary expert. Tell him you can't resist the light, moist, and layered flavors of his omelets. And don't forget fresh-squeezed orange juice. :-)

    As a Français I have to say there might be too much herbs for me too, also, if you want to cook if fast, I would have to add some olive oil ( or grape seed oil) in addition to the butter so I doesn't burn it by mistake. Adding a little bit of milk based product is also a go to. In the good restaurants sometimes there is more yellow than whites and they varnish the omelette with additional butter because butter is life. Mushroom was a really good Idea, actually I'm used to eat omelette when the old men of the neighbourhood found mushrooms (chanterelle or boletus), it gives me vibes of sunny days after a storm, still the odour of earth... Fantastic Well well I'm lost in PLpost I'm scared of... 😅

      @Jean-Pierre I. We use both at the same time, depending of course on what we're cooking. Thank you for clarifying, though, as my grandfather died 10 days after I was born and his father and mother had already been dead. I met a bunch of my uncles, though, and they used olive oil and butter. It could have been the influence of my grandfather's wife, my nana, who was from Pompei, Italy. She was a fabulous cook!

    When I cook omelets, I usually saute the vegetables then add the mixed eggs into the same skillet. I don't cook it brown or stir it around but rather flip it then add the cheese, fold it, remove from heat, cover with a lid for a minute before plating. The omelet is cooked without being brown and the cheese is melted. Whether or I fold it in half or make it into a tube depends on the amount of filling. A lot of filling, fold. Not so much filling then fold one third and compete the fold as I plate it making the tube style. I do not like browned eggs. As far as using a piping bag, in my opinion that adds unnecessary complexity to the process.

    I grew up making these "diner style" I guess - but the step they all seemed to skip (that I think is a MUST) is to cut the heat, add a lid with a decent seal, and let the omelet puff up and become fluffy - so you're going to want to incorporate a decent amount of air when incorporating the eggs. You might even want to flip it about half-way through the rest to ensure even browning on both sides. While this happens, I usually make some toast or something for a nice omelet sandwich and it gives any cheese some time to melt so it's gooey when cut in half. I don't seem to see this approach used in restaurants so it's an added benefit of DIY omelets.

      Scrambled Eggs has 3 ways to properly cook and if you only recognize one of them your palette is under devloped. There is the Chef's Scramble smoothe and velvety which needs to be paired with a toast or something because the texture can be off putting to some. There is the "American" Scramble Light and Fluffy pairs well with ketchup can easily be eaten by itself There is the Pan Scramble which carries the flavors of the oils you cook it in and very fluffy yet still slightly crisp often found in Eastern recipes. Then of course you have Quevos Con Chorizo which is the "American" Scramble cooked into a Mexican Sausage which in my opinion is the champion of the scrambled eggs.

Lots of nice toppings. and bacon! Level 3. blech. snobby omlet. goat cheese is revolting, it tates like baby spit up. and she is using way way too many herbs, it's gonna be gross, they are supposed to be used sparingly. her techniques, ie pipping tube, are also off-putting, in my opinion - just so snobby.

    I tried all of these methods, my taste is Lorenzo's, but I still prefer my own - using a bit of cream with the egg mix, parsley or coriander and pre cooked tomato, lowish heat, sprinkling grated cheese on top, finishing it off by sliding the pan under the ovens griller. Moist, succulent and delicious.

    I enjoyed this video so much! It took me years to figure out how to cook eggs the way I like them. The hardest thing for me was learning to be mindful of the cook time. I over cooked them for years. I found that I didn't enjoy eggs as much when I cooked them too long. I learned to take them off the stove at a certain point where they didn't quite looked finish but where since eggs keep cooking a little longer even after you take them off the heat. It made the difference between chewy rubbery eggs and soft, creamy delicate eggs. I use to never finish my own eggs because I didn't love the flavor/texture. Now I can make eggs that are perfect for my palette and I always finish them b/c I want to. And people have different palettes. And sometimes your palette changes over time. You just have to experiment and learn about what you personally like.

    Such a good video. I make a pretty good omelet, but it can get a little liquidy with some fillings. Now I know why. But I really like the Level 3 omelet. My dad used to slow/soft cook his scrambled eggs and they were wonderful. Now I know why. All that said, I use a step which no one here did. I cook the omelet on low heat and, after adding my usual filling of tomatoes, shredded cheddar, and diced green pepper or onion, I place a lid on the pan to evenly cook the eggs and melt/warm in the filling (checking often so as not to overcook).

    Strange, I use a cast iron skillet on the grill for my omelets and they turn out great. a bit long due to the size of the griddle, but great. The cheddar cheese is melted all the way. I should try a different cheese next time.

    I'm definitely a level one chef. My mom was too busy working to teach me anything about housework and assumed my much-older sisters would teach me how to cook and do laundry. Nope! I learned to cook after going to college, by watching PLpost, haha! Starting in 2017, I was roommates with a guy who was a former country club chef, and he taught me "level 3" style of cooking an omelet. I still haven't mastered that French fold, but his advice really upped my cooking skills. I dare say, I now cook an omelet that's better than anything my sisters made!

    Well, I love omelettes, and I’ve eaten them in very many countries. If you order an omelette in France, you will get what they label as a diner style omelette. I’ve only ever had what they are calling a French style omelette in somewhere where the cook can’t cook very well, and try to pretend that solidified scrambled eggs are really an omelette. In France the omelettes are often sloppy in the middle and a bit burnt on the outside, but because you are getting some wonderful fresh French bread with it, you appreciate it more. I’d give the best marks to the level 1 and 2 efforts. On a good day I can make a pretty good omelette, on a bad day it’s just a mess. Depends very much on timing and pan temperature and my peace of mind.

    If you want the low moisture cheese to melt, you can add whole milk/heavy cream to your egg mixture. This would raise the temp needed to cook the eggs and you should be able to get the cheese to melt

    FYI, you can make a French omelet and then put it back on the heat and "crisps it up" a little if you prefer that while still having the rolled style. This can be useful if using a dryer cheese that needs a little more heat/time to melt.

      @Jan Eygenraam My thoughts too. I even have a cookbook that's kind of like the Julia Child of France. The method described there is like method 2, except they brown the butter before adding egg. I think that's the trick to getting it golden brown without being overcooked. I think the "french" version here actually looks more like japanese omelettes that they put on sushi, etc.

    I gave up trying to fold my omelets a long time ago. I now just cut them and layer one half more or less on top of the other. My cooking is a cross between Emily's and Lorenzo's styles. Yes to bacon and cheddar cheese (the sharper the better), but I'm more likely to garnish with salsa and a dab of sour cream than hot sauce. I loved how all three omelets looked delicious.

      @Aster Roux It's a legit way to stretch the recipe that doesn't have too large of an effect on the final result. Granted, I prefer not adding water, but it's not bad enough to keep a recipe at level 1. What makes it level 1 is a combination of choices that make it simpler and some mistakes - in this case, the addition of water, _plus_ leaving the filling uncooked, _plus_ a lack of salt (though low salt may simply be her preference). You can sometimes see level 2s do just one or two similar things, but generally the additions or technique used allows for that.

    I learned to make omelettes from a chef in a culinary arts class at my high school. We always added ingredients one by one and once they were all cooked and in the pan together, the egg was added in last. Then the cheese is applied as the omelette is slid and folded onto the plate. Things have changed apparently!

      I learned how omelets from a professional at our contry club, he explained the process to me as he went and it was exactly that, ingredients were added to the pan as they needed to cook so the longest item first and the eggs being the fastest cooking were last save the cheese. a little oil was used for the vegies etc so it wouldnt burn before you got to the eggs and then just before adding the eggs some butter would be added for the last of the oil needed. none of these chefs flipped their omelets which disappointed me. the french style appears to be little more than some scrambled eggs left together instead of fluffing them at the end. IMO none of these were pro level.

Great presentation! BTW, I would've went with Barbara's omelet. 1- no green peppers in MY omelet(yuck). And 2- The goat cheese filling sounded interesting. Personally, I would've went with a Feta cheese mixture. To me the best omelet I ever had was: Tomato, Ham, Mushroom, and Cheese, Served at Frank's on Main st. Asbury Park NJ.
