    When scrambling, my preferred way of eating eggs, I also go with the Kimball/Milkstreet olive oil near smoking point for the most pillowy eggs ever!

    But this reminds me I think I will make a tortilla with some glorious eggs I received as a birthday gift this weekend.

    I'm not at all satisfied with my own scrambled eggs, Pairs--could you walk me through your protocol? I'd love to be able to do it.
    Didn't know about the smoking olive oil trick...

    Ummmm, tortilla! One of my faves! I was priveliged once to be taken to Meson de la Tortilla, which is in a cave under Madrid. The. Real. Thing.
    Enjoy yours!

    Tnx C2! It didn't look like he did much special, beyond the olive oil.

    I like my fried eggs over easy; my mom used to cook them with the lid on. I may try it on a slow flame, just to see what difference it makes.

    A quick google search shows that we are both correct. You can baste eggs with fat, as your Mom did:



    Or you can steam baste them:

    That's the kuku sabzi best way I know to show any kid green eggs after reading them a

    It was a good reminder. I think my tortilla for tomorrow may well become the less labor intensive kuku sabzi.

    Gwiv,

    Do fill your French omelettes? On the Julia Child episodes, she filled them with Swiss cheese, creamed spinach, sauteed mushrooms and such. I have a sense you may not.

    How many seconds does it take to make a French omelette? Julia suggested three cooks making three omelettes a minute could feed 180 people. If that could be pulled off, that would be a great spectacle to see.

    I do not fill, to me the perfect French omelette has jiggly custardy small curd interior. Glistening bright to pale yellow exterior. Delicate flavor not over come by cheese, spinach ect. If anything I might include scant chives, chervil or/and tarragon if I have super fresh. Upthread I have a couple of omelette interior pics, one is just about perfect, the other over by about 30-seconds. My opinion, you want fillings make an American style omelette, frittata, tortilla etc.

    Cathy2 wrote:How many seconds does it take to make a French omelette? Julia suggested three cooks making three omelettes a minute could feed 180 people.

    Seconds, time? You know my answer, I have no idea. :) I will say the better one gets at making French omelettes the quicker it goes, you shake the pan faster/harder, motion becomes more economical, reflexive, use higher heat etc. I made 6 for house guests in pretty short order a few weeks ago, 4-really-nice, 1 slightly over cooked and one verging on brown/American omelette(ish). I served Ellen the slightly overcooked omelette and I ate the brown one.

    The French Omelette she is a cruel mistress . . .

    Hi,

    Some years ago, I arranged a tour at the Navy culinary school when it was still at Great Lakes. One of the tests of a good cook was to make an omelette that did not brown.

    Yes, I will make 'American' omelettes with cheese and all that will brown. We like it because we're used to it.

    I have played around making French omelettes. I did attempt filling them. You really have to place the filling just right to get everything to roll correctly.

    I get what you mean about the cruelness of making them.

    Cathy2

    American omelettes with filling are tasty, I like cheese as much if not more than the next fellow. There is also a much wider margin of error with American style omelettes.

    That said if you, and I may be understating this, ever wish to become even marginally adept at making French Omelettes substitute obsession for "played" and you are on the right path. :)

    Test driving a new to me omelette. Ring of Parmesan crisp, aka frico, with a folded American style omelette on top. Simple, especially compared to a French omelette, and tasty.

    I have looked at this picture a few times. You indicate there is avocado, though what I see seems to be seedless cucumber. Perhaps the avocado is on the bread and those are cucumbers.

    In my head, the combo of sardines and avocado doesn't work. I guess I have to try to it sometime.

    C2,
    Avocado is spread on the bialy, its difficult to see. Sardine and avocado go wonderfully, rich creamy + salty fishy with the sharpness of shallot for contrast. A classic combo in the style of lox, cream cheese and red onion. Those are Persian cucumbers, thin, crunchy, my preferred cucumber of late.
