For the full how-to on scrambling eggs and making the classic French omelette, check out the recipe tab. You can find some helpful hints here: For scrambled eggs, use a non-stick pan for optimal results. Move the eggs around consistently to create tender, super-soft curds. Remove the eggs from heat promptly once they're finished. For the omelette, remember that practice makes perfect. Prep just like you would with scrambled eggs. Add butter to your skillet; wait until it foams then pour in the egg mixture. Add filling once the egg has settled, fold over on itself, then tap the pan on the cook top to loosen the omelette before sliding it out.
