Julia Child’s 20-second Omelette

My kids like omelette but I don’t like making it because it takes too long.  So, my husband makes the omelette for the kids.

Recently I came across Julia Child’s 20-second omelette through a friend.  I was stoked.  You can make an omelette in 20 seconds??!!!  We gave it a try and was sold!  Now we’ve been enjoying yummy omelettes 20 seconds at a time.

First time around we used a stainless steel pan but it didn’t work as well so you just have to listen to Julia Child and use a non-stick pan.

For your enjoyment and happy consumption, here is Julia Child teaching you how to make an omelette:

    Ahh, butter makes the world go round doesn’t it. Now do you have a secret for evenly cooked pancakes?

    I like her rejection of the omelette pan.

    Mom WAS RIGHT all along about beating eggs with chopsticks! How could I doubt her for 25…um…all these years? 😛

    Julia Child seems more active on this clip than in recent shows…I guess she was doing more of the cooking back in the 70s.

    So, Jack watched this when I showed him your blog and now he’s made them twice. They’ll be our dinner tomorrow night, too. Thanks!
