It’s been over two years since the last episode of Chicken and Ketchup, so I’m pleased to announce the release of my latest cooking adventure: an omelette:

As you can see, my first attempt didn’t yield a perfect product. I kept at it though, and got a better result with my second attempt:

Folded omelette

And here’s my third omelette:

Omelette with ketchup on top

I’ve made several more since, and my latest thing is adding more sauces at the end to enhance the flavor. In addition to the ketchup and Tabasco sauce, I now add salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.

  1. You’re hilarious. Thanks for all the blog posts. Some tips from my omelette-making experience:

    -Adding just a bit of water or milk to the eggs (~1 tbsp for a 2-3 egg omelette) improves the texture
    -After adding the eggs to the pan, when the edges start to set, lift them with the spatula and *then* tilt the pan to let the uncooked egg flow underneath (so that you don’t end up with uncooked egg on top)
    -I like to sauté the onions and peppers a bit beforehand. You can even do it in the same pan.

  2. I was a little scared for you at 4:22. I’m glad to see your persistence paid off with Omelette 3. It’s beautiful.

  3. Hee-larious! I was laughing so hard I had to rewatch it to make sure I didn’t miss anything. The split screen with the stove cam was extremely cool! Very nice use of the theme song playing in the background while you chop up ingredients. Can’t wait for the next episode =)

  4. So nice work, a couple of observations and questions:

    1. You look really great in that outfit, would love to see it at work.
    2. You have a really nice kitchen.
    3. You have A LOT of wine at your place.
    4. Did you eat all 3 omelettes?

    Can’t wait to see the next episode and catch up on the one’s I’ve missed!

  5. 1. I have worn it to work but people make fun of me. I did get a compliment from the chef at Lunch Box, though.
    2. Thanks.
