Making Egg White Omelette Deliciously Flavourful
I love coming up with new options for eggs. I made cloud eggs with fluffy egg whites recently, and they were so tasty and fun. Whipped egg whites and a slightly runny egg yolk – delicious! So, egg white omelette is a natural follow up.
Unlike souffle omelette, you may be thinking that egg whites are tasteless. Well they are on their own! But I tried and tested them with different seasoning and combinations. I found that herb salt, grinded black pepper and garlic powder bring the egg whites to life, elevating them to be flavour powerhouses.
This egg white omelette also has mushrooms and cherry tomatoes to complete a delicious breakfast, brunch, lunch or pretty much any meal you can think of. I'll show you how to sauté them French style
So, say goodbye to flavour free omelettes, or wet and soggy mushrooms and tomatoes! This will be your new go to omelette.
Herb salt: I've found herb salt works perfectly for this omelette recipe. If you don't have it, try fresh herbs and sea salt. You can use rosemary, parsley, oregano or chives. All work well for this recipe.
Egg whites: Of course, eggs should be as fresh as possible – it makes all the difference with taste, and also making the egg whites fluffy. Keep them in the fridge till you start whipping them.
Olive oil: Butter is usually used for the omelette but I use olive oil. The parmesan cheese is enough to bring the buttery richness. But if you prefer, you can use butter.
Garlic powder: I love garlic powder with this egg white recipe – it gives it that extra kick.
How to Make Egg White Omelette
Making an white egg omelette is super easy. There are just a few steps which will make it a success.
How to make mushrooms and tomatoes tasty
First, sauté mushrooms and tomatoes with a frying pan before cooking egg whites.
It's tempting to stir fry mushrooms and tomatoes but that can make them wet and soggy, and no one likes wet and soggy mushrooms and tomatoes in an omelette.
I've found sautéing them helps them less wet and soggy. To do this, coat them with olive oil while heating them up. Cook them one side each and flip over with spatula once one side is cooked.
How to make egg whites fluffy
I like the fluffy texture you get when making egg white recipes. My tips:
- Not to over whip egg whites
- Start whipping after heating up the frying pan and not vice versa
How much to whip the egg whites
The best for taste and texture is to whip egg whites enough to be firm but not excessively firm – there’s no need to make stiff peaks. Check out the images above.
Once the egg whites are firm, things needs to be handled quickly. Use a tablespoon and transfer the mix into a preheated frying pan. This helps you avoid breaking the whipped egg whites.
Flip over the egg white omelette and cook both sides. Then place sautéed mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on the same half. Then fold the other half of the omelette on top.
That's it! Serve immediately. Enjoy!
