French Omelette (The Best)

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk with a fork for 2 minutes or until smooth with no traces of egg white remaining.
  2. In an 8-inch (20 cm) non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, melt the butter without letting it brown.
  3. Pour the eggs into the skillet, whisking constantly with a spatula until the mixture is starting to set, about 1 minute.
  4. Once the eggs are almost dry but still creamy, reduce the heat. Tilt the skillet to slide the eggs to one side. Using a spatula, roll the omelette into a log. Tilt the skillet again, rolling the omelette onto a plate. The centre of the omelette should still be runny. Using a pastry brush, cover the omelette with butter and sprinkle with chives, if desired.
