With Vital Farms butter for custardy perfection!

  1. Whisk eggs until uniform.
  2. Heat skillet on medium-low heat. Prep with butter (no sizzling!).
  3. Pour eggs into pan, stir continuously (patience…).
  4. Let your almost-omelet sit off heat for 1 whole minute.
  5. Tilt your pan to coax your omelet into a roll. Use butter in the skillet to help it along. Rub your plated omelet with a little more butter and finish with a sprinkling of salt.

As always, cooking an egg until the yolk is firm helps prevent illness from bacteria.
