Perfect Omelette


  1. 2 eggs
  2. Salt and pepper
  3. A pat of butter
  1. Possible Omelette Fillings
  • Small handful of ham cut into strips with thinly sliced tomato and some grated cheese
  • Quarter cup grated hard cheese such as Cheddar or Gruyere
  • 1 tsp chopped soft herbs – try parsley ad dill, chives or chervil
  • 1 tsp each of diced sautéed red onion and canned corn plus one thinly sliced scallion
  • Handful of sliced white button mushrooms sautéed in a pat of butter


Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk them until they’re slightly frothy. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a small frying pan – about 7in – over a medium heat. Melt the butter and when it starts to foam, pour in the eggs.

Stir the eggs once or twice, then leave to cook undisturbed for about 30 seconds.

When the eggs start to set at the edge of the pan, lift the cooked edge toward the center. At the same time, tip the pan so the uncooked egg runs into the space that’s left until there’s no runny egg left on the surface of the omelette.

Now add your filling. Fold the omelette over heat for a minute or two and then transfer to a plate and serve immediately.
