Eggs are a part of most people’s breakfast, the reason being that eggs are a power house of a lot of essential nutrients that the human body needs. Children, youth, middle aged or old, everyone can consume and is recommended to eat at least one egg per day. Eggs can be eaten in a variety of forms, boiled – soft, half and hard, scrambled, poached – in water or in oil, and even raw. However, the omelets happens to be the favorite of a majority of people and if the eggs are from a farm as good as the Norco Ranch , then there is nothing better than that.
An omelet or omelette is of French origin, it is a dish with egg as its obedient ingredient, which is prepared by beating up the egg and frying it in a saucepan (ideally) in oil or butter. The difference between scramble and omelet is the latter is not stirred after putting it in the pan; unlike the former which is stirred with a spatula to make sure that the egg is broken into small parts.
The popularity of the omelet is so much that people all around the world have created their own versions of it, though keeping the method of cooking the same. Each country, and in fact each state has its own version it seems. In Iran, the omelet is known as the Nargesi or the Spinach Omelet, owing to the use of spinach in it. The Chinese’s version of the omelet is known as egg foo yung which is basically an oyster omelet, i.e. oysters are coupled with eggs.
Filled with diced ham, bell peppers, and onions, the Southwestern United States loves to call their omelet as the Denver Omelet.

An unusual kind of omelet is the one that originated in Placerville, California; this is known by the name of Hangtown Fry and is one that has bacon and breaded oysters in it.
Frittata, is a version of the Italians egg omelet; it is an open-faced omelet that is mixed with a whole lot of cheese, vegetables and at times even left over pasta, traditionally, i.e. before the mixture is poured out on the pan.
