An omelette souffle is known as the puffy elegant textured omelette. The texture of this omelette is very light! Omelette souffle takes a little more work than a standard omelette, but the flavor and texture is rewarding. Once the omelette batter is poured into the hot pan, it is left undisturbed, till it is flipped or placed in the oven. The less handling of the batter when this omelette cooks, the better! Like any souffle, the object is to not knock the air bubbles out.
I made a few extra portions of chocolate buffalo steak chili the other day and I decided to put them to use as alternate recipes. One of my favorite breakfasts is a chili omelette. The hint of chocolate in the chocolate buffalo steak chili gave this chili omelette souffle a great breakfast flavor! Omelets are not just for breakfast, as you know. Omelets can be served for any meal.
