Perfect Omelette Recipe: Insider Secrets from Squeeze In

At Squeeze In, we’re passionate about omelettes. From our humble beginnings in the 1970s when ski bums were slinging omelettes out the back door of our Truckee location, we’ve grown to become known for our incredible variety and quality. Our journey includes being challenged on Food Network’s “Throwdown with Bobby Flay” and refining our menu to include only the best of the best. Today, we offer a range of omelettes from the off-the-wall Nebraska Rae (bacon, tomato, cream cheese, and avocado) to classic favorites like the Denver. Here are our insider secrets to creating the perfect omelette.

Perfect Your Egg Flip

Flipping an egg is no easy task—it’s all in the wrist! Practice with a piece of cold bread in a pan until you get it right. This technique helps you get comfortable with the motion before trying it with eggs. Remember, the key to a perfect flip is confidence and a quick, decisive movement.

Use Fresh Ingredients

At Squeeze In, we believe that fresh ingredients make all the difference. We use fresh mushrooms instead of canned, cook bacon every day, and cut avocados right before they are served. Fresh ingredients not only enhance the flavor but also provide a more vibrant and satisfying meal. Always choose the freshest produce available to ensure your omelette tastes amazing.

Make It Fun!

Cooking should be fun, and the dining experience should be memorable. At Squeeze In, we find small ways to make the total experience enjoyable—like our unique decorations and the fun signatures written on our walls. When you are having fun and in an elevated environment, you are more likely to remember and savor the meal. So, add some fun elements to your kitchen or dining area to enhance the overall experience.

Choose the Right Fillings

The right fillings can make or break your omelette. Whether you prefer a classic combination like the Denver or something more unique like the Nebraska Rae, it’s essential to balance flavors and textures. At Squeeze In, we experiment with various ingredients to find the perfect combinations. Try mixing and matching different fillings to discover your perfect omelette.
