If you're looking to experiment, give that one a whirl.
This type of omelette makes a good pudding/dessert if you serve it with a little warmed jam as a sauce(and leave out the savoury stuff, of course)

Careful, now. You won't be able to blame the pan....

Of course I can. You can always blame a new pan until you get used to it.

It says to season it with oil. Does anyone know how I season a non-stick pan?

You do it with a paper towel, and a tsp. Place 1 tsp. of cooking oil into the cold pan, and spread it all over the pan with the paper towel. Done.

I just heat my pan enough to melt butter, and get it all bubbly, swirl it, then add the beaten egg. It's seasoned before I put the egg in. Many people don't know that you need a minute amount of fat to make non-stick work properly.

Also, I looked at restaurant quality aluminum pans when I purchase my new non-stick pan. The label said to season them as you would cast iron for best cooking results. I seem to remember a discussion a while back about such things.

The only true methods for cooking without fat are: poaching, boiling, steaming, grilling over fire, and maybe broiling. Anything where meat, or veggies are placed onto a cooking surface, require some fat to make things work, even when the fat is supplied by the cooking food.

Thanks Chief. I checked on the T Fal site and that's what they wrote. So, why didn't they just say wipe it with oil? As far as I'm concerned, that isn't seasoning.

I made two omelettes. They came out good. It worked just the way Julia Child said and showed it would.

The three egg omelette took a bit longer to cook enough than I expected. I think I'll stick to two egg omelettes. Stirling had said that he didn't want liquid pouring out when he cut it. He had had that several times with fancy chefs making them.

I used chives in the beaten eggs and put grated Gruyère on the eggs before starting to jerk the pan to roll up the omelette. I sprinkled with chopped parsley.

Taxy, you have now joined the ranks of omelet all-stars. Nice job. This is you -

All omelettes can become scrambled eggs, but all scrambled eggs can not become an omelette.
