It just takes a little practice. You can get it down in a few minutes. Start with the chopped onions and mushrooms in butter (part of any good grilled steak dinner)
Get a saute skillet with the rounded corners between the bottom and sides.
Just yank the skillet towards you (about 3 inches) and quickly put it back where it was so all the food falls back where it was, only upside down. When the food hits the wall of the skillet, it will basically go straight up about 2 to 4 inches, and you just catch it quickly when it comes back down
Flipping pancakes is pretty much the same motion, maybe a little more like 4 or 5 inches of a quick horizontal flick. You don't actually flip the skillet upwards.
Once you can successfully flip saute and pancakes, you should be ready to try an omelet.
Here's a full disclosure and safety net measure:
I have a large cutting board on the counter next to the range. I always flip OVER the cutting board. If I drop anything I can retrieve it, instead of making a big mess on the stove.
Is this cheating? Who knows, who cares.
Soon, you'll be flippin like a pro.
I like the idea of flipping over the cutting board. I have the same setup. It would give me confidence.
I know it’s Easter but the Sunday shows were likely taped Friday or about. Dave Axelrox was on, that horrible Kelly guy. Crowley had aDem senator on. But NO Repubs or spokesnoids on today.
They work harder at it.
Writing on Kindle, patience.
