Pro tip: To make the perfect colorless omelet, pay close attention to your heat once your eggs are in the pan. While you may be tempted to stir your eggs, refrain. As your eggs set, follow the directions below carefully.
Letting the uncooked portion of your eggs flow through the pan ensures all of the egg gets cooked and you’re not left with an internally soggy omelet.
