The Unexpected Ingredient IHOP Adds To Its Omelets
By JEN PENG
The beauty of an omelet is that you can add just about anything you want to it, but some ingredient additions are still more unusual than others. IHOP, the chain famous for its pancakes and other breakfast staples, adds an unexpected ingredient to their omelets to make them more fluffy.
According to IHOP's website, their omelets are all "made with a splash of our famous buttermilk & wheat pancake batter." While this sounds odd, My Recipes explains that the addition of pancake batter to the eggs yields the "fluffiest omelet" that is "hefty and airy at the same time."
Pancake batter won't work for every type of omelet, such as the classic French omelet, which is supposed to be runny and soft. However, if you're looking for fluffy and hefty omelets with just an extra touch of sweetness, try mixing up some batter and fry yourself some flapjacks on the side, too.
