Hello everyone! My name is Nazia and I work at Food and Meal. Today I want to share a recipe for rolled omelet that is close to my heart.
Growing up, my grandmother would often make this dish for me whenever I visited her. The savory egg combined with the vegetables wrapped in a neat little package was always so comforting. As I got older, the nostalgic memories of her kitchen came flooding back every time I took a bite.
Now as an adult living far away, thoughts of my grandmother and the care she put into making this rolled omelet motivate me to carry on her legacy. I want to share this recipe so others can also experience the tender love and dedication that goes into crafting the perfect rolled omelet.
The technique of gently rolling up the eggs as they firm on the skillet, yet remain soft and pillowy inside, reminds me of her patience and care in preparing this dish. I still remember peeking over the counter as a little girl, filled with anticipation as the aromas of eggs and scallions came wafting up.
While my version may not be quite as perfect as my grandmother’s, I put all my heart and soul into following her guidance. With each roll and flip of the spatula, I feel her love and wisdom passing down to me.
My hope is that by sharing this rolled omelet recipe today, I can inspire the same warmth and family bonds for you and your loved ones. Even if the finished product isn’t Instagram-worthy, take joy in the memories and connections this dish can create. Savor each tender bite, knowing that it was made especially for you with care.
How to make a rolled omelet
- In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with the onion, carrot, and salt until well combined.
- Heat a medium nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the egg mixture and heat slowly for 2 to 3 minutes, until almost cooked through, then place the seaweed sheet on top of the omelet. Roll the omelet into a tight roll by lifting one side with a flat wooden spatula. Turn the rolled omelet over and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes to make sure it is cooked through. Transfer to serving plate and let cool for a few minutes.
- To serve, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces and lay in cross-sections, like sushi rolls.

Cooking Tips: Perfecting Your Rolled Omelet
First, ensure the pan is well-greased to prevent sticking. Let the eggs cook until set on the bottom before attempting to flip. Use a thin, flexible spatula to gently fold the omelet in half. Then continue rolling while gently tilting the pan. The omelet should slide onto the plate without breaking.
Some other helpful tips include adding a bit of milk or water to the eggs, which creates steam and lightens the texture. Using a nonstick pan, preferably one made specifically for omelets, can make flipping easier as well. Work quickly so the omelet doesn’t overcook. And handle the folded omelet gingerly when plating. Mastering these methods takes practice, but following these guidelines will help you flip and roll omelets perfectly.
