If you want to learn how to make a protein-rich meal using one of the most basic ingredients I guarantee is in your kitchen, watch this How to Make a Fluffy Omelette video.
Whether simply scrambled, hard boiled or baked in a frittata, eggs are a staple ingredient I couldn’t live without. They serve as the basis for so many dishes and make life in the kitchen so much easier for busy parents.
Earlier this month Kenya spent a week at the Stone Barns Center Farm Camp, where he really got in touch with food and nature learned what it means to be a good junior farmer. At the beginning of the week he learned how to feed baby chicks their first drops of water, which he said was an unbelievably cute experience. On the last day of camp Kenya got to gather eggs from the free range chickens — and I got to go with him!
Have you ever been in the company of hundreds of chickens? It’s an experience I will not soon forget. We literally had to keep our feet moving at all times so the chickens wouldn’t peck us, which I learned that they will do without fail if you stand still (so that’s why closed toed shoes were required). Kenya and I had a lot of fun running around the chicken area together and one enormous basket of eggs later, our mission was accomplished.
We brought a dozen of those magical, fresh-as-can-be eggs home with us to make omelets. I was planning on making them myself, but Kenya insisted on being chef. Having gathered the eggs himself he felt a real pride of ownership over how they were going to make it to our table. With my assistance, Kenya proceeded to make the most delicious fluffy omelets for brunch. He carefullly cracked, whisked and poured the eggs into the pan, cooking them patiently before folding them into beautiful half moons. He did such a good job, I wonder if he watched this video!
Here are a few other quick egg recipes and videos that I’ve made over the years_
I like your recipes. I like to made fluffy omelette.
You do a great job! I enjoyed your video…However, for me the camera angles were not good. I want to see more ‘in the pan’ . That would be so helpful.
Thanks for sharing!!
Looks great, what I have been doing wrong is cooking it to fast. Thank you.
this was great! thanks for the inspiration to do easy things in the kitchen. keep the videos coming!
We love our hens!! Clara is our official egg collector. Sounds like an amazing experience for Kenya!
Love this recipe and think my boys will too! I have a somewhat related question for you. The price of organic butter and cheese have gone through the roof (at least in my area). I’m trying to reduce the amount of butter and cheese I use in a week (Butter for 2 packages of 4 sticks is 10.00 and 8oz of cheese is close to 6.00. That’s 16.00 total *just* for butter and cheese!). Any advice on meals that don’t use much butter in the recipe or on the end product itself — like spreading on quick bread? For example – this recipe is great, though I would like to substitute chopped veggies for the cheese.
True that . . . Eggs are the go-to staple in the kitchen. I always have hard boiled eggs on the ready and a scrambled egg is an instant dinner in a pinch for a hungry kid. Love your blog & videos . . . so do my kids!!
My daughter and I just watched this together. She’s super excited to make her own fluffy omelette now! Thank you!
