Omelets are a delicious and easy-to-prepare breakfast that many people love. However, to make an omelet, milk is usually used. But what if you don't have milk?

Don't worry, there are several products that can be used as a substitute for milk in an omelet, according to Telegraph. Below are a few options.

  • Water is the easiest and most affordable option. An omelet with water will not have milky tenderness, but the texture will be pleasant and airy.
  • Butter gives the omelet a rich creamy flavor. Before adding butter to an omelet, melt it. However, it is important that the butter is not too hot, otherwise the eggs may curdle.
  • Sour cream also gives the omelet a rich flavor. You can add baking soda to such an omelet on the tip of a knife. Sour sour cream will extinguish the baking soda, and the omelet will be incredibly fluffy and airy.
