    With the exception of the corn starch that’s almost exactly how I make mine.
    Guess what I’m going try the first chance I get?

    Oh yeah, and I always flip my eggs.
    Years ago I had friends staying over and did that...their kids were so excited that they went and woke up their parents. LOL One of my boys said, “He does that all the time.” Clearly not impressed.

    After I did it a couple more times, and they were still enthralled...I said, “Watch this.” I then flipped an over easy egg without breaking the yoke. My son, while more impressed than before the chimes in with, “Now you’re just showing off,” laughing and then adding, “How the heck can you do that?” LOL

    I haven’t turned an omelette with a spatula in years...and only rarely do so with any eggs.

      I was a division manager for Waffle House for many years, I can crack eggs and flip eggs with both hands simultaneously without breaking the yolks. I very likely cooked more eggs in one month than most cook in a lifetime. BTW Gordon Ramsey says never cook eggs with salt because it breaks them down, add the salt after the eggs are plated.

    I flip mine, too. Except yesterday I replaced my pan with one that has steeper sides, and now I have to relearn the flip and angles and whatnot.

    I make 3 omelets a week. I’m going to give this a whirl in about 30 minutes. I have fresh thyme, but no heavy cream, just the half and half. I usually make a country omelet, sometimes a French omelet. Country omelets are easier, but French omelets are pretty amazing.

      It’s a good omelet. It didn’t come together perfectly for me the first time; like we were saying in a different topic, mi cocina no es tu cocina. Mine was a tiny bit gritty; less corn starch? Heavy cream instead of the half and half I had on hand? Cook a little longer? And mine didn’t release from my brand new nonstick pan, there was some sort of suction going on, so I ran it under the broiler instead. That could have been the source of the grittiness, could have cooked longer on top. I used bacon grease. But, the creaminess is all there, as promised. The brown in the finished omelet is bacon fond. There is no browning of the egg at all.

        Looks really good to me. Channeling my inner Pépin, the edges look a little ragged, most likely from the "suction"?

        EDIT: I'm feeling an omelet coming on for dinner tonight.......

      I just tried this with the corn starch, and it really is amazing the way it lightens and "fluffs" the structure (but the chemistry makes sense). The most critical thing is of course the pan: a good non-stick is essential (although I'm working on seasoning a carbon steel pan that I have high hopes for soon)... that touch of cornstarch makes a great omelette, Meathead-thx!

        i can see cheese throwing off the ratio of ingredients, but is there any reason why adding some peppers and onions into the mix should screw it up?

        Finally attempted this recipe this morning, with the exact same pan to boot (needed some good non-sticks and Mh's GreenPan review was perfect timing).

        WOW!

        I have never had eggs with such a luxurious texture. And so easy. Sans the skillet-flip, I didn't want my wife's new stove to need a scrubbin' so I did the plate-flip method. It was so good I made a second. I needed 3 pinches of salt personally. Thankfully my wife and kids had a few bites so I didn't have to eat 6 eggs. I added grated cheese to the 2nd one after the flip before the plating & fold over.

        grantgallagher After the flip I'd suggest add your pre-satueed ingredients and cheese right before plating. No reason you couldn't. The eggs are quite thick though so go lightly on the filling if using an 8".

          Huskee i used an 8" and the wife and i split it with some toast and jam. I used the plate method for flipping and it was easy. i took your advice and loaded once on the plate and then folded. all in all it was pretty straight forward, looked great and tasted fluffy amazing. Next time i will take pics, we were too eager to eat it this time.

          grantgallagher I made one today with a new twist for the filling. I used the 12" skillet, plate-flip method, and it worked perfectly with the thinner egg. I will share my new recipe soon!

        Huskee did another one today. Filled with sauté onion, peperoncini, spinach, feta, and a little cream cheese. Between this and shakshuka i think it has ruined all other forms of eggs for me. Crappy picture below.

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
