Do you add milk to an omelet?

My suggestion is NOT to add milk to the ham and cheese omelet. Extra liquids allows the raw egg to slide down to the bottom of the pan. Adding milk, or any other liquid, makes the egg mixture runny, in my opinion.

How do you make an omelet? How many eggs are needed for an omelet?

2 for most appetites, but 3 for the heartier eater. My rule of thumb here is to only use 3 if I do not have a lot of additions to the omelet. Adding meats and vegetables to the omelet will make a healthy meal alone.

Why are my omelets not fluffy?

Use a smaller pan, so that the egg won’t be thin. The larger the pan, the more the egg has to “spread” out, therefore, becoming thin. Also, do NOT cook on high heat. Have some patience.
