Fines herbes omelets~

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
10 larges Eggs
½ teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Loosely packed chopped herbs
2 teaspoons Canola oil
2 teaspoons Unsalted butter

* A mixture of ¼ cup chopped parsley and ¼ cup combined tarragon, chives, and chervil.

Using a fork, beat the eggs, pepper, and salt in a bowl until thoroughly mixed and well combined. Stir in the herbs. Heat 1 teaspoon each of the oil and butter in a 10-inch nonstick omelet pan over high heat. When the oil and butter are hot, add half the egg mixture. Stir it continuously with a fork while shaking the pan for about 2 minutes to create the smallest possible curds. When most of the mixture is solid, cook it without stirring, for 10 seconds to create a thin "skin" on the underside of the mixture, binding it together. Roll the omelet by bringing together two of its edges from opposite sides of the pan. Invert it onto a plate and repeat the process, using the remainder of the ingredients to create a second omelet. Serve immediately, half an omelet per person.
