French-style Cheese Omelette - Video Recipe



I have to give it up to Chef Ludo Lefebvre for this luscious French-style Cheese Omelette recipe, that my own version is based on. He trained and cooked in France until making Los Angeles his home.

You may know camera-ready Chef Ludo from his cooking stints on the Food Network and as a chef/mentor of NBC's The Taste.

I'm used to American diner-style omelets that are cooked well done and dry, except for the soft melted cheesy interiors. I always liked my omelets that way, until I watched his own recipe video of how to make the perfect French omelet, his way, and then tried it out for myself. Click here to see what I mean.

Ludo, you have opened my eyes and changed my taste for a simple omelette -- hey, I'll even give you props for changing the way I'll now spell the word, from omelet (sic) to omelette!!

What's different is the way his omelette is cooked. Mainly, you soft scramble the well mixed eggs, add the cheese while the egg is slightly damp, then gently roll it up. Of course, American tastes blanch at runny eggs. But the egg is cooked and warmed through, just slightly damp, and this makes all the difference.

But if you insist, you can continue to cook the omelette to your desired doneness.

Chef Ludo also cooks the omelette in lots of butter. And he uses a soft French cheese called Boursin (similar in texture to cream cheese.) For my recipe I just used easy to get Italian shredded mozzerella. You can use any soft cheese you like. I think the main thing is how lightly the omelette is cooked.
He finishes the omelette with a smear of butter and tops it with chopped chives. For my recipe I skipped the butter finish (gilding the lilly, methinks) and used a little chopped parsley, instead of chives, as a topping.

Eggs are still priced reasonably. I can buy a half dozen size container at my local Dollar Tree store, sometimes. I always find small packages of cheese cheaply.

This omelette is versatile. You can also add some sauteed spinach or mushrooms. If you have any favorite omelette ingredients, then try them out, too.

Any way you spell it, omelette or omelet, this recipe is one you can take to the bank! A buttery soft scramble with cheese makes a luscious breakfast.

And, here's my Americancheap$kate video recipe below. Once you try my version of Chef Ludo's French-style Cheese Omelette you will cry sacre bleu! And bon appétit from this Internet Chef.

Ingredients (one omelet) 
3 eggs - I used medium size eggs.
1/4 cup soft cheese -  Add more or less to taste. Any favorite is fine. I used shredded mozzerella.
1 tablespoon salted butter - If you use unsalted, then add a little salt to egg. Okay to use a butter substitute, or just plain cooking oil. But, butter does add a lot of flavor.
Pepper to taste - I left out salt. I find the cheese and salted butter is...
