MY FAVORITE: Julia Child
Listen, I know this omelet might seem kinda boring, but it's absolutely perfect in its simplicity. Not only was it by far the easiest and quickest to make, but it had a wonderful texture that was still soft and creamy in the middle — a true classic. If you're looking for a delicious omelet that's simple and easy to make, this is the technique for you. Get the recipe here.
ALSO LOVED: Masaharu Morimoto
So this is hard to compare to Julia's French method, but I loved it just the same (but in a different way!). It was super savory with the slightest bit of sweetness — perfectly balanced and complex. If you're expecting a standard, diner-style omelet, this is not for you — but if you wan't something with a ton of flavor and are up for a challenge, I recommend you give this a try.

LIKED: Emeril Lagasse
This one is good, but pretty boring. It's your classic American omelet made with a generous amount of cheddar cheese — so what's not to like? It's standard, comforting, but nothing special (and definitely missing his signature BAM! flavor). Get the recipe here.
WAS JUST OK: Geoffrey Zakarian
This omelet was by far the most beautiful, but it wasn't the most delicious. Freezing the butter didn't seem to do much, and the main flavor was the overpowering cheese and herb mix. While I did like this one, I didn't love it and found it to be a lot of work for a mediocre omelet. Get the recipe here.
NOT FOR ME: LL Cool J
I didn't love this omelet — in fact, I kinda hated it. It tasted bland and overly healthy, and that's something I'm not looking for in an omelet (but is probably why he has a killer six-pack and I don't). I get that this is a completely different dish (and that egg whites are inherently not that tasty), but I still think it sucked. Sorry! Get the recipe here.
