Carla Makes an Omelet Soufflé | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 16 April 2019
  • Join Carla Music in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes a soufflé-style omelet. Your arm may get tired during all of the whisking, but make sure the egg white peaks are firm enough to stand up on their own while still having a nice shine to them!

    I remember Jean Naté

      I have made my omelets the same way for over 50 years and my method is not the way that anyone on the YouTube makes them. They are, IMHO, Souffle Omelets. One of them will usually feed three people and is a complete meal. I have even made dessert ones.

          "cheddar makes it better" is now going to be in my cooking quotes rotation along with "the dough can sense your fear"

                  I'm making this tomorrow morning. Does anyone else wish BA lowered the video brightness for the egg white detail shots? I can't see any texture, just shape.

                      I haven't had a whisk in years. Getting one this morning for the sole purpose of making this epic omelet. Thanks, Carla!!

                        Oohly, I knew exactly what you meant, great adjective/noun? My third grade teacher would be so ashamed of me!

                          So.... how in the world is this easier than an omelet? She’d be done by now, and she’s “folding the egg”.

                              I made this and didn't really love it, but I feel like I learned a lot while doing it! Now I can tell people I "souffléed" something and make them all impressed.

                                Would you not cover the pan with a lid while your'e cooking it? My kids would say those eggs are burnt.

                                  Love Bon Appetit! But a small feedback to the videographer, could you please lower the exposure by about 2 stops next time, I've noticed this in few of your videos. It's just that you lose all details of the food.

                                              Not one person who "gets" the Nate reference has explained it to the rest of us.

                                                    Looks really good but I challenge the concept that it's easier than an omelette. My omelettes are much less work although I concede that Souffle version probably tastes better. But it ain't easier. Just sayin'.....

                                                        I made this for my mother the morning of her birthday and she has not had eggs any other way since. She talked about it to everyone who would listen and even watched me make it again to learn how! It made her so happy and I'm so grateful to have found this for her. Thank you!

                                                          I love watching her hands. Watching Carla is like watching my aunt cook, when she was younger. My father’s family are full blooded Sicilians, if the hands aren’t moving, something isn’t right.
