Ham and cheese omelet

Ham and cheese omelet

Ham and cheese omelet it is a simple but extremely satisfying preparation that solves a meal in a few minutes, provided you know how to prepare it in a workmanlike manner.

There are many schools of thought on this recipe, there are those who prefer it well cooked and those who claim that it must be slightly creamy inside, for a truly succulent result and because the egg melts with the filling.

Even the way of beating the eggs follows different lines, depending on whether you want to obtain a uniform but drier or less uniform surface, with the egg white more evident, but with a softer final result.

The beaten egg must be poured on a hot pan, so that the cooking is rapid and that the omelette does not dry out too much.

If you intend to make an omelet empty, just wait until the cooking is not perfectly reached in the center and roll it on itself with the help of a spatula, if instead you want to stuff, the right time to place the ingredients inside it is when there is still a little liquid egg left in the central part, which at the end of cooking will blend perfectly with the filling.

Like many cooking techniques, the only way to make an omelette in a workmanlike manner is by exercising, also to evaluate the right thickness of the wrapping, in relation to the number of eggs used and the diameter of the pan, but above all to a master’s wrist lap!
