Dear Perfect Omelet-Flip

Whether you’re a French cooking enthusiast, egg-lover, or a cocktail of the two, I encourage you to join in my praises when one creates the perfect omelet, day or night!

Truly, could you NOT write a sonnet when that perfect oiled or buttered pan produces a flip so tactful, so graceful? That crescent shape, like a twinkle of the eye, and symmetry may pair with a curvy sweet potato or, better yet, a tasteful croissant? It’s the ideal, protein-packed meal that’s warm, satisfying, and totally customizable!

There’s also something to humbling about omelets too, no? The act of taking one or two simple ingredients and transforming them into our own little works of artistry take me back to being a smaller kid. It would be dad’s night to cook, and his omelets absolutely oozed with cheese (and class, for my younger tastes) with nimble crunchiness from the bacon. Omelets, for me, are one of those perfect homey foods, don’t you agree?

With a lack of ingredients this week, I kept things simple with just a few pads of goat cheese in the center. Even still, how I felt like royalty! And with so many options out there, the possibilities are endless!

The question remains: what kind of fillings/toppings are ideal for YOU, loyal readers? Share you ideas and upload your photos; we’d love to hear from all!


The two great loves of my life are the movies and food; you can't take those away from me. Growing up in Oregon, where the hammering rain can't help but lead you inside great restaurants and venues, I've picked up a fine appreciation for these pieces of beauty and art, and how to give and get those along life's way. Through a life of pictures and dishes, my only wish is to be able to share with any and all my insights, misadventures, and fortunes.
