Elaboration of the French omelette recipe
The best thing to do is to make 2 omelets of 2 eggs each.
Cracked eggs (2) and place them in a bowl, salt them and beat them well with a fork Add the 2 tablespoons of milk to make the French omelet juicier.
Heat a teaspoon of oil. in a frying pan Spread it so that the base is well impregnated. When it is hot, pour in the beaten eggs stir them a little.
Wait about 15 seconds until they begin to set, then carefully and gently fold the tortilla in half.
Flip the tortilla to the other side.
When you see that it is to your liking, remove it from the pan and serve.
If you find it easier, you can roll it at both ends, so that it looks like a tortilla roll. Don't despair if you don't get it right the first time. Practice makes the results better.
The omelette will give you a lot of play because it admits a lot of ingredients. The variety of ingredients, from those that do not need cooking before adding them, such as parsley, cheese, tuna in oil, canned asparagus; to those that do need sautéing or frying beforehand, such as peppers, onions, mushrooms, mushrooms... Take a risk, as the saying goes, "variety is the spice of life".
