How to Make an Omelet
But what about that classic fold–how do you do that? Julia Child, who liked to shake the pan to get the egg mixture to fold onto itself, said it was “all in the wrist.” But with great respect to my mentor, I humbly suggest an easier technique, one that never fails to give home cooks a boost of confidence.
Using the spatula, fold one-third of the omelet into the center. Tilt the pan over your serving plate so that one-third of the omelet slides out and hangs over the edge onto the plate. Using the edge of the pan, fold the omelet again, onto the third of the omelet on the plate.
