Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and if your like me and want to do something “hand-made”, why not give this heart-shaped omelette a go?
The video made it seem really really simple but you probably need a few practice runs before you can master the art of folding. I found using a spatula easier than using a chopstick. Only 4 egg roll slices were able to be made into hearts from my first attempt. The remaining 6 slices were too flat to be made into proper “hearts”.
In future, I would use 5 eggs because the 4 eggs they suggested didn’t give it enough layers and caused the “flat” rolls.
Taste wise, don’t expect anything extraordinary. This is just a simple egg omelette.
