One of the pleasure of a food blog, is re-collecting old posts.
Since I migrated my-halflife to new-blogger, which has an indexing feature that old-blogger didn't have, these re-collections have become simpler and more organized. So I realized I've done four omelet posts, for example. Re-reading them, I thought to surf around the web, and check out how other people do their omelets.
And there seems to be a lot of different opinions on the matter. Some, like Pineapple Girl add milk, but most as it turns out don't. Whisking to a froth is recomended by several, but Delia (who has the best series of how-to pictures) insists that one should not - she just blends her yolks and whites. Adding chopped herbs to the blended or whisked eggs, is a basic of the classic (french) omelete, Pim over at Chez Pim, who blogs beautifully, reminds us -- and this Chili Cheese Omelete, on the BBC's well designed Good Food site adds the chopped Chilie right in the mix.
My own method is to add a little water to my eggs, whisk well to a froth, some times adding a little grated cheese into the mix. Up above are thumbnails of my old posts -- just for colour, fun, and the pleasure of recollecting.
But my question is, 'how do you do your omelet?'
