What does this omelet have in common with a piece of bread? Take a close look at a both and you’ll see tiny holes that were created when air became trapped in the mixture by a leavening agent. Many foods wouldn’t have their light, fluffy textures without a leavening agent like yeast, baking soda, or in the case of this omelet, fluffy whipped egg whites! In French, the word souffler means “to breath” or “to puff” and a soufflé is a French dish that uses beaten eggs to create a puffy texture like the one you’ll enjoy in this omelet.
