Fluffy Omelet

From America's Test Kitchen Season 14: Three Ways with Eggs

Why this recipe works:

We love the impressive height and delicate texture of fluffy omelets. To make sure that the eggs are cooked through but moist and tender, we fold butter-enriched yolks into stiffly whipped whites. We fill our omelets with light but boldly flavored fillings that are sure to satisfy.

Fluffy Omelet

It’s like a soufflé in a skillet—or would be if we could figure out how to keep it from collapsing before it got to the plate.

Serves 2

A teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice can be used in place of the cream of tartar, and a hand-held mixer or a whisk can be used in place of a stand mixer. We recommend using the fillings that accompany this recipe; they are designed not to interfere with the cooking of the omelet.
