Obviously, if it looks like a pancake, if it smells like an omelette and sounds like a soufflé, you are eating Fluffy French Omelette Souffle. Originally, this recipe was introduced by Madame Poulard who lived in France at the end of XIX and beginning of XX century. She was the owner of a small inn and restaurant in Normandy. Her Fluffy Foamy Omelette Souffle became very popular and turned into a tourist attraction on its own.

Certainly, its unbelievable fluffiness, lightness and sponginess will intrigue and surprise you like it amazed me the first time I saw it. No doubt, omelette is a frequently made meal in our kitchen but this one is a real miracle. By the way, we made a version with split yolks and whites. The original recipe doesn’t split the eggs but we just love how gorgeous and fluffy an omelet becomes if you do it in an alternative way. Actually, we made it both ways but decided to present an updated and revised version. Hopefully you won’t regret with Fluffy Foamy Omelette Souffle.

As you probably know, the best recipes for busy families is the motto of our website. We keep all conservative principles but apply a modern interpretation to them. Get inspired by the past achievements but don’t rest on the laurels, keep moving and develop your own style.

Servings: 4


  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 oz butter
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste



  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl. Split yolks and whites.
  2. Season the yolks with salt and pepper. Begin beating the yolks with a fork for a few seconds. Add milk and keep whisking until it turns into the homogeneous mixture.
  3. Beat the whites until they become fluffy. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Here is a hint for you how to make this mixture extra fluffy. We use KitchenAid Stand Mixer. It is a great assistant and can do this job quickly. If you want to have this device in your kitchen, please find the link below this video. Look how gorgeous and foamy it is.
  4. Set a nonstick 8- or 9-inch skillet over medium-high heat and heat until hot. Add the butter to the pan, swirl to coat it in fat, and pour in the whipped yolks. Let cook, undisturbed, for a couple of minutes.
  5. Use a spatula to transfer and shape the whipped whites. Cook it on low heat for about 20-25 minutes.
  6. Transfer omelette from the skillet to a large plate. You can either cut omelette or fold it over itself on the plate. Serve immediately this Fluffy Foamy Omelette Souffle. You can add ketchup or any other sauce that you like.
