Perfect Gordon Ramsay Omelette Recipe

More often than not, my omelette’s would turn out to be flat and not so fluffy. I’m sure you would relate to how irritating that can get if you experience the same issues. So, I thought of giving Gordon Ramsay’s omelette recipe a try. Luckily, it put a stop to all my omelette experiments!

If you, too, struggle with the same issues, I suggest you stick with me till the end, as I am going to share Chef Ramsay’s secrets of making the best omelette. I solely give the credit to him for my success. 

One of the most important things I learned from this recipe was the correct way to beat the eggs and cooking them at the right temperature. Mastering these two steps ensured each bite was soft, fluffy, and melted in my mouth. 

Along the way, I also learned the best way to enjoy the natural flavors of egg is to keep the seasoning simple. 

Therefore, I fell in love with omelette’s all over again after trying this recipe. Now, it’s your turn to give it a try and experience the magic of Gordon Ramsay’s omelette recipe.

Equipments Required

  • Bowl – You’ll need a bowl to beat the egg.
  • Spoon – A spoon will help you beat the eggs and make the egg mixture.
  • Pan – A non-stick pan will be required to make the omelette. It will ensure that the omelette slides out effortlessly. A 12-inch skillet is an ideal size for a six-egg omelette.
  • Spatula – A spatula will help you flip and fold the omelette.

After about 2-3 minutes, fold the omelette while the center is still slightly runny. A flexible spatula will help you do this delicate maneuver successfully.

Fold one edge of the omelette across the middle, then fold the other edge across all the way to the edge of the first fold. If you prefer a fully cooked omelette, you can cover the pan with a lid for about 2 minutes. This way, the trapped heat will help cook the omelette inside out.

Slide the omelette into the plate to serve.

  • One of the most special tricks that I discovered in Chef Ramsay’s recipe is that he uses both butter and oil, which adds richness to the omelette. Therefore, you must use a combination of both. 
  • Eggs continue to cook even after you’ve removed them from heat. Therefore, to prevent overcooking, remove the omelette from the pan just before it reaches your desired level of doneness.
  • Overloading the omelette with too many fillings will increase the cooking time and result in overcooked eggs. Therefore, you must add the fillings moderately to ensure even cooking.
  • Whisk the eggs vigorously before cooking to incorporate air for a fluffy omelette.
  • Sauté vegetables  before adding them to the omelette to prevent excess moisture from making the omelette soggy.

The best thing about making Gordon Ramsay’s omelette is that it is naturally keto-friendly, paleo-friendly, whole-food diet friendly and gluten-free. However, its not suitable for people following a dairy-free diet. So, if you do follow this diet, I recommend swapping regular butter for plant based butter and not using cheese.

Storing And Reheating This Recipe

Storing

Refrigeration

  1. Allow the omelette to come down to room temperature before storing it in the refrigerator. It will help prevent condensation and bacterial growth.
  2. Transfer the omelette to an airtight container or wrap it tightly with plastic wrap.
  3. Label the container or plastic wrap with the date of storage.
  4. Store the omelette in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

Reheating

In Microwave

When you’re ready to eat the leftover omelette, reheat it in the microwave on high heat for about a minute or two, until heated through. An omelette is reheated correctly when the internal temperature reaches 74 degrees Celsius or 165 degrees Fahrenheit. 

In Pan

You can also reheat the omelette on a non-stick pan. To do so, add a dash of butter or oil to prevent the omelette from sticking to the pan. Allow the pan to heat a little and then place the egg on it on medium heat. 

Note: What I’ve experienced is that reheating this omelette may cause it to become slightly dry or overcooked. Therefore, I always add a teaspoon of water to the pan as the moisture will prevent it from drying.

What To Serve With This Recipe

  • Toast or Grilled SandwichOmelette and toast is a classic combination. So, enjoy your omelette with a slice of toasted bread or a bagel to enjoy a wholesome breakfast.
  • Fruit – Add some fresh fruit, such as sliced strawberries, blueberries, or bananas, to your plate to balance out the savory flavors of the omelette.
  • Breakfast Meat – Serve your omelette with a side of bacon, sausage, or ham for a heartier breakfast.
  • Salad – Pair your omelette with a simple green or fruit salad for a refreshing and healthy breakfast.
  • Potatoes Serve the omelette with roasted or sautéed potatoes, hash browns, or home fries for a classic breakfast combination.
  • Avocado – Add some slices of avocado to your omelette for a boost of healthy fats and a creamy texture.

  • Pour the egg mixture into a preheated non-stick pan greased with oil and butter over medium heat. The key to a creamy, melt-in-your-mouth omelette is cooking it over low to medium-low heat. So, don’t rush the process over high heat as it will result in a tough and overcooked exterior.
