IHOP Omelette Recipe


  • 3 large eggs: The base of your omelette.
  • 2 tablespoons pancake batter: IHOP’s secret for extra fluffiness. Use your favorite boxed mix or a basic homemade recipe.
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt: To season the eggs.
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper: A little extra flavor.
  • 1 tablespoon butter: For cooking the omelette.

Fillings of your choice:

Get creative! Some classic IHOP combinations include:

  • Country Omelette: Ham, onions, hash browns, cheddar cheese
  • Garden Omelette: Spinach, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, cheese
  • Southwest Omelette: Sausage, onions, bell peppers, jalapenos, pepper jack cheese


  • Prep the fillings: Dice and cook any meats and vegetables before starting the eggs. Prepare the cheese (shredding if needed).
  • Whisk the eggs: Beat the eggs, pancake batter, salt, and pepper in a bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Heat the pan: Preheat a non-stick skillet or omelet pan over medium-low heat. Add the butter and swirl to coat the pan.
  • Pour the eggs: Gently pour the egg mixture into the pan, tilting it to create a thin, even layer.
  • Cook: Allow the omelette to cook undisturbed for a minute or two, until the bottom is set and the edges are firm. Watch closely to avoid overcooking.
  • Add toppings: Sprinkle your chosen fillings over half of the omelette.
  • Fold: Using a spatula, carefully fold the other half of the omelette over the fillings. Gently roll the omelette out of the pan onto a plate.
  • Garnish and serve: Add any remaining toppings or fresh herbs for garnish. Enjoy immediately while hot!


  • Don’t overmix: Whisk the eggs just enough to combine the ingredients, as overmixing can make the omelette tough.
  • Control the heat: Medium-low heat ensures the eggs cook through without burning.
  • Use a good pan: A non-stick skillet is ideal for easy flipping and folding.
  • Play with fillings: The possibilities are endless! Try different cheeses, meats, veggies, and sauces for a custom flavor.
