With everyone forced to stay at home due to the enhanced community quarantine, people have been relying on their own kitchen skills to satisfy their cravings. Case in point: the Dalgona coffee trend! Apart from it being “Instagrammable,” it’s also a nice way to elevate your daily cup of joe using only three ingredients, so it’s no surprise how it took social media by storm. And since we’re talking about easy-to-do IG-worthy recipes, why don’t you go the extra mile and prepare a complete set of breakfast instead? Introducing: the soufflé omelet!
If you ask us, the soufflé omelet is basically the egg equivalent of the Dalgona coffee—they both require basic ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen, plus a lot of whisking (yup, this one’s gonna be a test of patience, too!). Like your Dalgona coffee, the soufflé omelet is also going to be an #aesthetic addition to your IG feed and will make your average breakfast feel a bit fancier than usual. They'll make a great pair in the morning, for sure!
Now, ready to learn the ropes? First off, you’ll need two eggs plus salt and pepper for seasoning... Wait, well, that’s it actually! But if you’re feeling a bit extra, you can level things up by adding cheese, green onions, and some chopped parsley—optional, but highly recommended.
How to Cook Soufflè Omelet
Step 1: Get two mixing bowls and separate the egg yolks from the whites.
Step 2: Beat egg whites until you get firm peaks. It would be easier to use a hand mixer for this, but if you’re up for an arm workout, using your good ol’ whisk will do the trick, too!
Step 3: Beat egg yolks and season with salt and pepper, then add about a third of your beaten egg whites and stir well until thoroughly combined.
Step 4: Gently fold in the rest of the beaten egg whites to your mixture.
Step 5: Brush some oil or butter onto your non-stick frying pan and set it to medium heat. Transfer your soufflé mixture and spread it into an even circle using a spatula. Cover for a minute and a half.
Step 6: Add cheese, green onions, parsley, mushroom, bell peppers, and/or bits of ham and bacon—whatever you usually put in your average omelet! You may skip this step if you prefer a traditional soufflé omelet. (In my case, I put cheese, green onions, and parsley.)
Step 7: Cover for another minute then it’s ready. Fold it in half and enjoy your soufflé omelet!
