Thread: Whisking eggs

    Default Whisking eggs

    when I make an omelette I just spend 10 or 20 seconds whisking it. Is
    there any benefit to doing it for much longer? On TV they always show
    people furiously whisking the egg mixture for a while.

    Yes whisking eggs for a minimum of three hours is instrumentally beneficial.

    Fidiot!

    can you explain why he's an idiot, andy? he asked a lucid question about
    food, which is far more on-topic than some of the gibberish you post.

    Andy used to be a nice person. These days he seem to think it is clever to
    snipe at people and rubbish their posts. If only he realised how it makes
    him look. Certainly not clever as he seems to think.

    NO TV cook/chef whisks eggs for more than 5 seconds!!! TV cooking is not
    about whisking eggs, it's better spent on the recipe. They race through
    cooking, applying the magic of TV editing. That's when I saw the troll in
    the OPs post.

    Sorry you two didn't.

    Ophelia,

    I'm one of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet.

    I certainly don't make it a policy of taking cheap shots at other members at
    every post like many others do.

    At the same time, I'm not gonna lie down and take it. As a practice, often I
    just ignore it. Insults from afar are immature. So is all the bull**** that
    pervades the entire internet.

    Best,

    Andy

    Default Whisking Eggs

    Whisking the eggs incorporates air. The protein structure of eggs helps trap air and moisture. This is how many baked goods are leavened. The more air you whip into the egg batter, the lighter your omelet.

    Search ChefToddMohr on YouTube for my three omelet videos among 161 other cooking videos.

    Andy is inconsistant, one minute he's up your ass all kissy-kissy, very nixt
    time he'll jam a shiv in your ribs... never ever relax your guard around
    Andy.

    There are very few truly nice people here, or anywhere... those who appear
    all sweet and nicy-nice to your face and in public are those who will stab
    you in your back behind your back... I much more respect those who
    demonstrate their mean side in public, to your face, and who are consistant.
    More than any other personality trait I hate back stabbers/liars the most.

    Mine is not a troll post. There's many mixing steps in cooking whose
    purpose is to alter the chemical makeup of the ingredients. For
    example you would tell someone to kneed dough for two minutes would
    you?I thought maybe whisking eggs for longtime maybe aerate the
    mixture and makes the omelette cooked differently.

    I think you are correct, but I am not sure about an omelet.

    I know that for something like a genoise, eggs have to be beaten a lot
    longer, til they turn a pale yellow. I know that when one makes a
    custard sauce, the eggs shouldn't be whisked so much that they produce
    a lot of foam.

    I know I personally whisk my eggs longer when fixing an omelet, or
    just scrambled eggs. But it is a personal thing with me..I don't
    like unincorporated whites in my omelet or scrambled eggs.

    I like the white and yolk well blended, but whisking long enough to
    incorporate air will produce a "fluffy" omelette which I don't particularly
    like. The same for scrambled eggs. For either, I generally beat the eggs
    gently with a fork until well combined.

    Personal preference. My mom always just mixed them with a fork after
    putting them in the pan. You could see white bits and yellow bits.
    (She didn't ever do the whipped-whites-folded-into-yolks thing.) I
    guess these were scrambled eggs, not omelets.

    BREAKFAST CASSEROLE
    A baked egg, sausage, and bread casserole

    Ingredients
    (serves 6-8)
    8 large eggs
    2 cups milk
    3 cups bread cubes
    1 tsp dry mustard
    2 lb bulk sausage (see note)
    1 lb grated cheddar (or more to taste)
    lb fresh mushrooms

    Procedure
    Brown the sausage in a frypan; drain off excess fat. Set aside. In a
    large bowl, beat the eggs. Add milk, mustard, and bread cubes. If you
    like salty dishes, add a teaspoon of salt. Wait a few minutes for the
    bread cubes to absorb the milk and eggs. Stir in 80% of the grated
    cheese.

    Add the cooked and drained sausage. Mix well. Pour into a casserole
    dish of the size that you would use to make lasagna (about 9 x 13
    inches).

    Slice the mushrooms, and arrange the slices on top of the casserole.
    Sprinkle the remaining 20% of the cheese over the top of the
    mushrooms.

    Bake for 45 minutes at Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

    Notes
    You can cut up your own bread for the bread cubes, or else buy a
    package of commercial poultry stuffing. Try to get unflavored bread
    cubes if you buy them.

    For the sausage, try Spanish chorizo, English Cumberland sausage, or
    American pork whole-hog sausage. I usually use a mixture of beef
    chorizo and Jimmy Dean pork sausage. Any spicy pork- or beef-based
    sausage will work.

    For the cheese, the best bet is Canadian sharp white cheddar. You can
    substitute any cheddar, or Leicester, or Cantal, or for that matter
    anything you want. I've never tried it with Swiss cheeses.

    Rating
    Difficulty: easy.
    Time: 20 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking and cooling.

    that we didn't see 'troll' in the post doesn't make us foolish, andy. i
