Make an ‘incredible’ buttery omelette like a Michelin-star chef

Jamie Oliver demonstrates how to make a folded omelette

Omelettes can seem simple enough to make, but one Michelin-star chef has explained there is a technique to perfecting this delicious recipe. 

Thomas Keller is a celebrity chef known for his series of restaurants, culinary skills and high standards. In order to cook the perfect omelette, Thomas has explained that being patient and cooking slowly is the best technique. 

In an interview with Masterclass, the chef said: “We want our omelettes to be beautiful, silken, of a consistent colour which is that beautiful golden egg.”

Cook Maxine Sharf who demonstrates the best recipes she finds decided to follow Thomas Keller’s “incredible” breakfast tutorial to show why this omelette recipe is packed with flavour, buttery and perfect for any weekend. 

In a video online, Maxine said: “My mum and I decided we wanted to make an omelette like a Michelin-star chef so we looked up Thomas Keller’s method and gave it a go.”

To begin, Maxine cracked three eggs into a small bowl, and Thomas Keller stressed that using a small bowl should be used to make it easier to remove any accidental egg shells that may be dropped in the mixture. 

The pan should then be brushed with butter and then set to the lowest heat possible and cooked until the eggs begin to just set. 

However, Thomas Keller’s trick of making an omelette is to let it finish cooking in the oven. Set the oven to 120 Celcius (248 Fahrenheit) for up to three or four minutes. 

Maxine said: “He has you start the eggs in a pan over a very low heat and then transfer to the oven to finish cooking.”

Next, take a dollop of creme fraiche and place it in the centre of your omelette along with herbs such as parsley, chives and tarragon along with some salt. 

Gently roll one edge of the egg in the pan with a spatula to fold it nearly, and then add more herbs and salt to finish.  

After rolling the omelette shut, Maxine did a taste test and said: “This was just incredible wow!”
