I tried to make tofu omelets (the recipe Isa has posted on PPK) for dinner. I tried a baby one first, just two tablespoons, to test the batter. That one turned out fine. When I tried to make a big one using 1/2 c of batter as the recipe instructed, it fell apart when I tried to flip it. I managed to turn it into a scramble-type thing, but it was a bit difficult because it all wanted to stick together. The flavor was wonderful, though. I put the rest of the batter in a container in the fridge so I can figure out what I want to do with it.

Has anyone else failed at making omelets and turned them into something else? Would it be possible to bake it and turn it into a frittata type dish?

Yes, the frittata should be easy. I think I failed the first time with the omelet too. You really need to use a good non-stick pan or well-seasoned cast iron skillet with a little oil, and the pan/oil need to be hot enough before you add the batter, and then cooked long enough before you try to flip.

I failed at making omelets multiple times. One involved throwing my spatula at the wall. It is a lot of work for something to mess up so much. I usually have my husband make them so that I don't freak out. We don't have them often though. I think we just scrambled the one I messed up and that was that.

If you're having trouble flipping you could slide it out onto a plate, then flip the plate over to tip the omelet back into the pan on the uncooked side.
