The BEST Way To Reheat An Omelet

You can’t get much better than a freshly cooked omelet.
But what about those situations where you just don’t have the time or energy to make one fresh?
Well, the good news is that you can prepare your omelets in advance and reheat them later.
I have experimented with countless different reheating techniques to find out what one truly delivers the best results.
In this recipe, I show you how to reheat your omelets to ensure that they maintain their characteristic custard-like interior and perfectly set outer.
(No overcooked or soggy omelets in sight!).

  • 1 portion omelet
  • 1 tbsp butter or oil


  • The stove is an excellent way of reheating an omelet because you can control the heat and make sure it doesn’t get too hot. 
  • Melt some butter (or oil) in a pan on a low-medium heat.
  • When the butter has melted, add the omelet.
  • Heat the omelet for 1-2 minutes on both sides until it’s warmed all the way through.
    Take the omelet out as soon as it’s heated all the way through, you don’t want to leave it too long, or the eggs will overcook.
  • You may notice some water leaking out of the omelet as it heats, this is perfectly fine and you can just leave it to evaporate.
    You could even put a lid on the pan and use the heat from the steam to speed up the reheating process.
