  • Brush your heated pan with oil.
  • Place your rice paper in the bottom of the pan.
  • Pour the whisked eggs on top of the rice paper. Ideally, you want the rice paper to be evenly covered, but don’t worry if it’s not perfect. You can do this by tilting the pan to spread the egg mixture, or by using the back of a spoon.
  • Add your chosen omelette toppings.
  • Cook until the egg is set. Using your spatula fold the omelette in half, the rice paper should be crispy and the eggs cooked but soft.
  • Enjoy!
