How to Make an Omelet (Low-Carb Omelet with Mushrooms and Goat Cheese)
This post will show you How to Make an Omelet, and this Low-Carb Omelet with Mushrooms and Goat Cheese is delicious for a special breakfast! And this tasty gluten-free omelet is ready in about 15 minutes!
On the weekends I love to make omelets, and I first made this delicious Low-Carb Omelet with Mushrooms and Goat Cheese back in 2006 when my brother Rand had sent me a flip-over omelet pan (affiliate link). Using a pan like that certainly makes it easy to get a perfect omelet, and I used the pan for a few year before I decided it was easy enough to make an omelet without the special pan.
Then when I moved to the new house, the omelet pan didn’t make the cut, so recently when I decided this favorite recipe needed new photos, I enrolled my niece/cooking assistant Kara to help me capture the easy steps of making a perfect omelet. And I think we nailed it, so I decided to update this post with info about the steps for making an omelet, for those who don’t have a fancy omelet pan!
What Pan Did I Use for Making an Omelet?
It’s important to have a good non-stick pan if you’re going to be successful with omelet making! I used my favorite Green Pan, but any small size non-stick pan will work.
How to make an Omelet: Preparing the Ingredients:
- Wash mushrooms if needed and slice into thick slices.
- Heat the olive oil and saute the mushrooms until they’re starting to lightly browned.
- Whisk the milk or cream and Spike Seasoning (or any all-purpose seasoning blend) into the eggs.
- Have the goat cheese crumbled and measured out so you can add it quickly when it’s time.
- Slice green onions for topping the omelet if you’re using them.
- When mushrooms are done, remove to a cutting board and rinse out the pan before you make the omelet. Even if you’re using a non-stick pan, give it a slight mist or brush of olive oil.
How to make an Omelet: Cooking the Omelet
- Preheat the pan for about 30-45 seconds before you add the eggs.
- When the pan feels hot when you hold your hand there, add the eggs and let them cook just until the edge is getting firm, about 2-3 minutes.
- Use this technique of lifting up the edge to check on how firm eggs are getting.
- Then use a rubber scraper to life the edge of the omelet in a few places while you tip the pan so the uncooked egg flows under the cooked part and gets firm. (Beautifully demonstrated by Kara!)
- When the bottom of the egg is firm but the center is still a bit soft, add mushrooms and goat cheese, sprinkling them evenly across the surface.
- When the omelet center is mostly cooked, add the sauteed mushrooms and the goat cheese and cook another 1-2 minutes to melt the cheese.
- When omelet seems nearly done, use the rubber scraper to flip over one side, then the other side, and roll the omelet out onto plate.
Turning out a perfect omelet is pretty easy once you practice a bit; hope you will try it! Use Breakfast Recipes for more ideas like this one.
