Whether you are making a quick breakfast or indulging in an elaborate brunch, omelettes always make an appearance on the table. Made from eggs that are quickly cooked with a mix of vegetables, cheese, and meat, omelettes are ready in no time and you can cater the fillings to your specific tastes. Everyone has a few favorite omelette recipes, and we’ve rounded up some of the best — just in time for Easter brunch.
We searched the Web, drooled over recipe after recipe, and may have indulged in a few eggy dishes ourselves. Here are the best, from the top five food websites (ours included — obviously): The Daily Meal, Food Network, Allrecipes, Food.com, and Chow. The best omelettes have the most and overall highest ratings on each of the websites. The Daily Meal recipes are some of our favorites that we think you must try. We’ve included three top recipes from each site.
A fresh omelette filled with herbs has high marks on the Food Network, Food.com has a baked ham and cheese omelette that takes high prize, Chow’s top recipes include a bacon, apple, and blue cheese omelette, and Allrecipes has a baby spinach omelette that sounds light and delicious. Here at The Daily Meal, we have a California omelette filled with avocados that must be on your Easter menu.
So, now that you are officially craving an omelette, browse through some of these recipes. For extra fluffy omelettes, beat in a small amount of milk or cream to the egg mixture. Your search is over for the best omelette recipes — now the only question is, which one will you make first?
