    Love this channel, but... It drove me crazy watching your "attempt" at "teaching" people how to make an omelette. Never crack an egg on a sharp surface, otherwise you end up with little bits of eggshell in your egg mixture, just like you did. You burned your butter. And I've never seen anyone cook their egg mixture in the skillet the way you did. Watch Bobby Flay, Chef Ann, Gordon Ramsey, etc.. This was a fail! Do over!

    I think we need some new head to head to head battles, seems like the lads have learned a fair bit since the last ones. As for themes; most pretentious dish? Best cafe lunch? Most hipster recipe? Environmentally sustainable ultimate battle? Most expensive recipe? Exotic food? Modern fine dining? Pack lunch battle? I miss the battles and the banter, and sure I’m not the only one.

    The way we make omelette at home is simple and yet so different, we use oil, mostly sunflower or mixed grain, don't put anything except salt, though there is occasional diced onions/tomatoes and we flip the omelette so they are equally cooked on both sides.....I do want to try the variety of cooking in the video sometime

  • Robert Murphy

    About cracking that egg on a sharp edge or by bashing a knife through the shell... nope! Any contamination on that shell is then driven into the egg and the risk of getting small bits of shell into the bowl is high which is annoying. The round egg is best cracked on a flat surface like your cutting board or counter which does a fine job of gentle shell breakage without driving shell or naughty bits into the raw egg. Once cracked simply apply pressure to the crack zone to open the egg into the bowl. This also almost always gets you about equal half shells if you tapped it at the mid point so separating white from yolk is tidy and you never need to fish shell bits out of your bowl ever again.

    Best way to crack an egg is to crack it against another egg. Only one egg will ever crack, because science. Plus you get to play a little egg king of the hill deathmatch in the process. (Obviously don't slam them both against each other at full swing speed or they'll both blow up, duh)

    I just watched a video on PBS here in the states where Jaques Pepin was adamant that you always crack an egg on a flat surface so as to (1) limit chances of pieces of shell from breaking into (2) introducing bacteria into egg (3) prevent breaking yolk if wanted whole yolk. I don't want to cause a beef between chefs, but I've only seen other chefs swear by Pepin's way. They also never brown eggs... but I grew up with more well done eggs myself as well. Ben just caught me off guard with cracking technique that has been shown to be the wrong example by every other chef I've seen. Love these bonus shows with Ben. Maybe Mike can engage more with him and make it more conversational as well? Dig it either way, always a great view.

    Couple of ways to crack an egg ... and both are wrong. :) Cracking your eggs on a sharp surface (knife blade/ bowl edge) forces the shell into the egg, risking a broken yolk and introducing bacteria into the egg. Crack your eggs on a flat surface for a much lower chance or either of those problems. A techinique favoured by Jacques Pepin. :)

    With all due respect, a few revisions (coming from someone who’s cooked thousands of omelettes in multiple restaurants): -Some people might like their omelette like this, but generally this would be considered a VERY well-done omelette. If I’d been caught cooking an omelette this dark in any job I’ve had, I probably would have lost that job. Again, some people like a well-done omelette, but traditionally a proper omelette is expected to have no browning. -If you’re using butter, use clarified butter, or else the heat required for the omelet will burn the milk solids. -Crack your eggs by tapping them on the counter, rather than the bowl, to avoid getting tiny bits of eggshell in your eggs. -Season your eggs the second you put them into the pan rather than in the bowl, to ensure even seasoning. -Sprinkle your cheese all over the omelette and then put your fillings in a line that is PERPENDICULAR to the pan’s handle. Fold the side closest to the pan handle over the fillings. Then grab the pan handle with your non-dominant hand, palm-up. Use the spatula in your dominant hand to coax the omelette onto the plate, unfolded side first, folding the omelette over on top of the unfolded side as it hits the plate. You can see that Ben struggled to fold and plate the omelette-this will make it much easier. Love the stuff you guys do! Just couldn’t let this one go, haha.

    Please never crack your eggs like he shows. Always crack them against a flat surface. The reason for this is that unless you wash your eggs, you could have Salmonella on the outside that cracking against a sharp edge could push into the yolk/egg. This isn't much of a problem if you buy high quality eggs but generic supermarket eggs, yeahhh no.

    prior to cracking your eggs on the edge of your bowl and further breaking them by pushing your thumbs in you really need to ensure that your eggs are perfectly sanitized. because even if you are super lucky to not get any shells in (which you are full on pushing into your egg twice using that method) you still increased the odds of salmonella...
