Half-fried honey omelette

I have been learning to cook recently. I knew how to make a few basic dishes, but my recent enthusiasm is all due to spending a month with Xri and performing almost-daily experiments with food. I’ve decided to share a few simple recipes that I like, now and then.

Omelettes are truly versatile, and damn difficult to get right. Subtle changes in preparation will lead to large differences in taste in the finished product, so I think making great omelettes is almost an art-form, that I hope to master in a few years.

A “half-fried honey omelette” (as I call it) is a very simple omelette to make, and one of my favorites. Here’s what you should do:

  1. Take a pan, put it on medium heat and add a teaspoon of olive oil.
  2. Crack two eggs over the pan: don’t mix them beforehand.
  3. Try to get your egg whites evenly spread on the pan.
  4. Add a tea-spoon of honey on top.
  5. Then, gently stir the top, breaking the yolks and mixing it with the honey; spread it but make sure that you don’t disturb the bottom.
  6. After a minute or so, your omelette should be almost ready. You don’t want it to become totally solid, the yolks should be a bit watery.
  7. This is difficult: try to move the whole omelette without breaking to your dish. I usually can’t do this, you an alternative is to fold it before serving.
  8. No need to add anything else (no salt or pepper required). Eat it hot!

OK, please comment if anyone tries making this.
