  • Combine eggs, yolk, heavy whipping cream, salt, pepper and parsley into a bowl and mix until frothy.
  • Let the egg mixture sit for 15 minutes.
  • Drop 1 tbsp of chilled, cubed butter into the egg mixture. Set aside.
  • Add 1/2 tbsp butter to a 7 or 8 inch non-stick skillet and turn on to low heat.
  • Once butter is fully coating the skillet pour in the egg mixture.
  • Using a spatula continuously stir the egg mixture scrapping it off the bottom and the sides. Patience is key!
  • Once the eggs have firmed enough to remain in place when scraped through with the spatula, spread it over the entire surface of the skillet and remove from heat.
  • Cover with a lid and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes.
  • Starting from one end, use the spatula to slowly roll the eggs into an omelette.
  • Once rolled into an omelette, push out onto a plate and enjoy!
