Let’s get started with the basic recipe:
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- Optional: add sugar for a sweet omelette or herbs for a savory twist
- Beat the eggs with salt using a mixer until foamy, then add the milk and beat again until well-combined. The mixture should be liquid but fluffy.
- Take two cellophane bags, stack them together, and pour the egg mixture into the bags. Tie them tightly to form pouches.
- Bring a pot of water to a boil (you can start boiling the water in advance to save time).
- Carefully place the egg pouches into the boiling water and cook for exactly 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, take out the omelette pouches, turn them out onto a plate, cut open, and enjoy!
