Not Just for Breakfast

Originating in France, omelets can be easily adapted to suit any taste—fill with seasonal vegetables, meats, or a variety of cheeses. Here, our favorite omelet recipes offer an array of flavors and tastes for a meal (anytime of day) that everyone will love.

First up is our Classic French Omelet, the perfect way to start off any morning. The trick to a perfect French omelet is to pull the pan off the heat as needed, while stirring, to control how fast the eggs cook. The finished omelet should be golden outside and unbrowned, while still creamy at the very center.

Use a mix of seasonal varieties or your favorite mushrooms to fill this classic French-style omelet.
