Air fryer omelette recipe is ‘a breeze to make’ – requires no flipping

Pan frying is the most traditional way to make scrambled eggs and omelettes but it’s not always the most successful.

The liquid mixture can quickly turn too solid and leave the end result without that fluffy core that omelettes are known for.

That said, one home-cook-turned-food blogger has claimed to have found the perfect solution in the form of an air fryer.

Sharing her recipe on the blog Melanie Cooks, Melanie Mendelson said: “This omelette is a breeze to make.

“The best part is, you don’t even need to flip an omelette when you cook it in the air fryer!”

Air fryer omelette recipe

Spray the pan with some cooking spray to prevent the omelette from sticking, or brush with a few drops of oil.

Place the pan inside the air fryer and before moving onto preparing the ingredients for the omelette.

To do this, crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and add the milk.

Stir these together really well while simultaneously adding in the cheese, then, once combined, pour this mixture into the oiled pan.

Ensure the mixture is evenly spread out to cover the whole pan, then leave to cook at 190C for six minutes.

After this time, carefully remove the pan from the air fryer basket and allow it to cool for a minute as it will be very hot.

Seasoning should be the last thing that’s added once the omelette is cooked to avoid drying out the fluffy egg mixture.
