Q. Is it necessary to add water or some other liquid to eggs before making them (omelette)? If so why?

A. If you add a little water to your raw egg mixture, it will help the eggs fluff up in the pan. I’m not a scientist, but the buzz out there in the cooking cyberworld is that the water creates steam when heated up and that helps the eggs rise and become fluffier. Kind of like bread rising with the warm water added to the yeast.

Adding milk will make the eggs creamier and a little heavier, but only if you use milk with some fat content (not skim).

FYI, The master omelette maker in my family is currently sitting in his high school classroom studying American Government or something so couldn’t ask him for tips. Will certainly check to see if he’ll share any secrets and add to the post if I can.
