Four Fun Facts About the Omelette

  1. No one knows who invented the omelette. Some think it was invented in ancient Rome, where made a sweet egg dish with honey called “ovemele.” Others insist that it was invented by the French.
  2. Rumor has it that the first time Napoleon Bonaparte had an omelette, he liked it so much that he insisted that every egg in town be gathered up and cooked so that everyone in the army could have an omelette for breakfast the next day.
  3. The world largest omelette was made in Portugal in 2012. The omelette used 145,000 eggs and weighed more than 7 tons.
  4. There are many different types of omelettes made all over the world. In Spain, the tortilla is a very thick version of an omelette made with potatoes and onions, while in Japan, the tamagoyaki is a very thin omelette made in a special rectangular pan and rolled and cut like a cinnamon bun for serving.
