Polish Omelette


I know, you might think that this is the Polish version of a simple omelette. It is not, sorry to disappoint you. I simply name it like this because of a Polish friend, Asha. She made this one day while we were in London, I really liked it and from that moment I decided that my favorite omelette was her version. It is not very difficult to make as you may think and it is mouth-melting. For a hearty and delicious breakfast I would go for this one while for a quick and nice one I would go for cereals.;) What I also like about it is that it is versatile, it goes with a lot of toppings, from sweet ones to salty ones. You can play with them. I prefer the sweet one with jam or honey. My recipe here is for just one person so if you want to make more omelettes, you have to start all over again each time and make sure you keep them warm on the plates untill they are all done. It doesn’t sound too good but imagine the faces of those who will eat.🙂 It will worth it.

Polish Omelette

Ingredients:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp water
  • jam, honey, chocolate cream or soft cheese, grated cheese
  • yoghurt (go for a fat one)

Method:

  • In a bowl, separate the whites from the yolks. Put the yolks in a cup and leave. Mix the whites with a mixer until stiff.
  • Put the flour and the water in the cup with the yolks and mix with a tablespoon until well combined.
  • Add the yolks to the whites and carefully fold them with circular moves until uniform. This way you keep the air inside and the omelette is fluffy.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan, add the omelette and leave to fry a  few minutes on one side, until golden brown then flip it with a pan slice or a palette knife like you do for a pancake and leave again for a few minutes until golden brown.
  • Slide it out of the pan onto a plate and add jam or honey, etc. Top up everything with a thick layer of yoghurt.

Bon appetite!

  1. my mum makes it.. and we do to.. yes Polish also.. but I like to fry it with salted butter.. and make it more savoury, sometimes with fried mushrooms… also we leave the lid on so it goes fluffy.. we also make placki ziemiaczany.. or potato pancakes.. even better!

  2. I’m from Poland, and this is actually a polish omelette, not just because it was made by a polish person but because that’s how we made our omelettes in poland. Eggs, water and flour and scallions, we didn’t add that other stuff.

    • At that time I didn’t know it is a polish omelette and I don’t remember her telling me it is something traditional. Well, now I know and it will always be my favourite omelette.🙂

  3. Yup, that’s a traditional Polish omelette. Polish pancakes have about two to three eggs per cup of flour and include milk and water. Polish omelettes have just two or three tablespoons of flour for two to four eggs.

  4. salut!

    you say it is not a polish version of omelette, but it was made by a polish person wasnt it? (Its normally spelled Asia by the way, but i see the issue with translation and pronunciation). And chocolate cream? “Nutella” perhaps? That’s very popular with polish people.

    This actually sounds very much like “nalesniki.” (pronounced na-lesh-nee-kee)
    These are usually described as ‘polish pancakes’ (other slavic countries have similar too). We make these and put all kinds of sweet things on it. (I like using sugared sour cream with blueberries – i guess similar to yogurt)

    • Hi,
      Yes, that is exactly what I say. It was made by a Polish person, whom, by chance, I have met recently. I hope I will meet her again and ask her more about this recipe, if it is indeed Polish or is her own way of making an omelette. Yes, her name is Asia but I wasn’t sure at that time. Thank you very much for your info and for reading this.🙂
