The Waffle House Secret to the Perfect Omlet

July 26, 2011 12:38am CST
I work as a cook at Waffle House and i was amazed when i found out how we are supposed to make our omlets. most pople just put the eggs in the pan and scramble them to make an omlet. this makes a small flat omlet unless you use like 6 eggs. at Waffle House we put 2 (only 2) eggs IN THE BLENDER before we pour it into the pan. this fluffs up the eggs and you will be surpised how big the 2 egg omlet will be when you blend the eggs.

I was a waitress there and I remember them doing that. I also remember the weird lingo like topped, capped and Eggs on 2. Why couldn't we just say 2 eggs for crying out loud? LOL.

I've never done it that way or thought about it. Usually blend them with a fork or wisk. But it makes sense if you think about how meringue is made that's made with frothy whipped eggs. Interesting, do you think it would work with a submersable hand mixer?

That is how my dad did scrambled eggs when I was a kid. There were 6 of us and he would place all the eggs in the blender and add a little milk, salt, and pepper and blend it up. I always thought he did it to make it easier since he was cooking for 6 kids, but now that you mention this he might have been doing it to make the eggs stretch further.

Thanks Zealous, that's a very nice tip for making omelette. I usually add a little water to the eggs when I am beating them. This makes the omelette really really puffy but if kept for a while, they flatten down. I will try passing them through a blender next time I make an omelette.

My grandma teaches me how to make this fluffy scrambled eggs,by beating the egg white first until it becomes very fluffy and then beat the egg yolk separately before adding it gradually to the egg white,beating at the same time to ensure that the fluffiness won't subside. I guess i will try with the blender,it's easier and i am sure it's more fluffy
