Usually, when I prepare an omelette, I pour oil in a cast iron pan and heat it. In the meantime, I prepare the eggs and I beat them fluffy. When the oil is pretty hot, I pour it in the eggs while beating them and finally I cook it in the pan.
As long as I can remember, I've done that following my mom's example. I assumed that it makes a difference but today my wife asked me why I was doing that. I couldn't find an answer other than "I always do like that".
I'd like to know if this process have any value on the end result. If so, I could give her a better answer. If not, I will change my habits.
