So I can’t make omelettes. I have made one maybe once. What I now call an omellete is browned scrambled eggs, with stuff on top. It’s what goes inside an egg burrito, minus the tortilla part.

So I’m eating mashed eggs with mango salsa. I’ll live.

I use a hinged, semicircular omelette pan that's probably older than I am. I don't know if they make them like that anymore, but it works teriffically.

Something like this?

Very much like that, yes.
My technique is to pour the entire omelette into one side of my pan—it can hold up to six eggs, plus veggies, without overflowing—close the lid, and cook until the eggs on the bottom are ready to part with the pan. I then flip it quickly over and cook the other side until it, too, comes easily away from the pan's surface. Of course I poke a few holes to make sure the eggs are cooked through.

I always wondered what those pans were for. Thank you Mitchell.
