editor's note

The reason why people love French omelettes is bi-fold. The 1st reason is the bubbly soft texture of an omelette. And the second is melted cheese. That is slowly running out of the inner core of an opened omelette. What else could I add to convince you to beat up some eggs. And try out this recipe. Probably you need to tailor my instructions. For I cook on direct induction. And you might cook on gas. Hence my suggestion to prepare this dish a few times. And adjust the instructions. According to your conditions & requirements
