Souffle Omelette? Definitely sounds and looks fancy, but you can easily whip up this recipe in minutes and enjoy a new spin on breakfast.
I love waking up on the weekends and making breakfast! I am obsessed with trying new fun breakfast recipes like stuffed french toast or cloud eggs. This Souffle omelette has become one of my new favorites. I love how easy it is and the eggs are incredibly fluffy and soft, with a melted cheese center. You can use any type of cheese and fresh herbs. Feel free to switch things up! Be Creative!
You can’t have breakfast without a little bubbly.
Scout and Cellar NV RIVAMONTE PROSECCO is the perfect pairing for this Souffle Omelette.
- 3 large eggs- separated, 3 egg whites and 3 egg yolks
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 ounces grated cheddar cheese, divided
- Minced fresh chives and dill
- 1 tablespoon (15g) unsalted butter
In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks with a pinch of salt and some freshly ground black pepper until well mixed.
In a separate large mixing bowl, using a whisk, or electric hand blender beat egg whites until firm, glossy peaks form.
Add half of the beaten egg whites to yolks and stir well until whites are thoroughly combined and soufflé base has a looser consistency.
Mix in half the cheese as well as the chives and dill, if using.
Add remaining beaten whites, and, gently fold them into the soufflé base just until combined.
In a nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat, until foaming. Scrape the soufflé base into the pan.
Using spatula, spread soufflé base into an even circle and smooth out the surface.
Cover and cook until the bottom of the omelette is browned and the top is just
a little loose still.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top; cover once more and cook until cheese starts to melt, about 1 minute longer.
Carefully slide the omelette out of the pan and onto a plate, folding it over itself.
Serve right away.
- After folding in the last of the egg whites, pour the batter into your heated pan as soon as possible. If you wait too long, the egg yolks will start to separate from the egg whites again.
- Make sure to cover the omelette with a lid as it cooks so that the omelette cooks all the way through.
