Scramble well with a whisk or fork. Use a minimum of milk. Cook on low heat - let it take its time.

I like to beat tarragon into the eggs, but not every one likes tarragon.

low heat, whisk thoroughly, fold when slightly undercooked, let sit in pan a minute, let sit on plate a couple, it will continue to cook. I find it doesn't get tough that way.
U are so stupid!

DO IT RIGHT.
Do not use milk,,,use a little water in the eggs. If you want fluffy,,separate the yolks out and beat the white stiffly in a separate bowl and FOLD gently into the yolk / water mixture....

Prepare a large NON-STICK fry pan / omelet pan by putting butter in and melt/spread. Turn heat to high, and carefully pour in the egg mixture.
Using a wooden spoon, here and there poke holes in the omelet while cooking so that the heat rises into the mixture. If you're making a non-fluffy omelet you can also roll the pan so that raw mixture can be sent to the sides of the pan, pushing the cooked mixture toward center. Play around with it in this way. For fluffy, you can cover it also to cook through.
When (regular) omelet is almost cooked, put any additions....already prepared potato / onion / green pepper, etc., on the LEFT SIDE of the pan only, left side of handle. So that when you slip it out, the left side is slipped out onto the platter, and the right side can then be flipped over the top of the left half.

IF YOU LIKE OMELETS INVEST IN A GOOD OMELET PAN OR GOOD SMOOTH NON-STICK PAN.

enjoy !

Re: how do you make the best omelette???
Use good eggs that come from chickens that aren't fed that cheap chicken feed. Good eggs come from chickens that are fed primarily corn.

Use water instead of milk to mix with the egg batter.

Add one slice per serving of Pepper Jack cheese into batter.

Add fresh garden veggies.

After its cooked and on your plate top it off with black bean salsa.

Also fix some good black coffee and four slices of quality wheat toast.

the trick is- using water instead of milk.
A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.

Re: how do you make the best omelette???
whisk the eggs with a bit of cream

don't fold the omelette in half in the pan.

fold each side to the center - add filling - then tip the pan and let the omelette roll onto itself. it should look a bit like an egg cigar.

Use water not milk, a dash of cream of tartar, and beat until your arm falls off, it should all froth. Using a copper bowl is best.

This is correct...separation and whisking of the whites from the yolks is key to fluffiness.

According to a Mag article I read from a chef who trained in France - this is how to make the perfect omelette:

very simple:

vigorously beat 1-2 eggs, stir in salt and pepper to taste

heat frying pan with olive oil and butter

pour in eggs and keep pan moving back and forth until it begins to firm

flip gently, let sit for a short time on low heat - done!

Re: how do you make the best omelette???
The best omelet I ever had was in Paris. It was just a cheese omelet, as that's how they commonly do it there. I'm thinking the cheese was Gruyere. Very simple, but they got it down. Great fresh eggs and execution.
