L’omelette, ham and cheese is a simple preparation but the extreme satisfaction that resolves to a meal in a few minutes, the pact, know how to prepare state of the art.

The schools of thought on this recipe are many, there are those who prefer well-cooked, and those who argue that it should be slightly creamy inside, and the result is really juicy and because the egg blends in with the filling.

The way to beat the eggs follows different lines, depending on whether you want to get a uniform surface, but more dry, or less uniform, with the white of the egg more in evidence, but the end result more mellow.

The beaten egg should be poured on a pan really hot, so that cooking is quick and that the omelette does not dry out too much.

If you want to make an omelet empty, simply wait until the cooking is not perfectly achieved at the centre and rolling it up on itself with the help of a spatula, if you want to fill, the time is right to lay the ingredients inside is when it is still some liquid egg in the central part, which, at the end of the cooking will blend perfectly with the filling.

As many cooking techniques, the only way for an omelet-of-the art is the exercise, to evaluate the right thickness of the shell, in relation to the number of eggs used and the diameter of the pan, but, above all, for a twist of the wrist by the master!
