Basic and Easy Omelette

basic-easy-omelette-4

This is a great breakfast staple that you can vary with whatever you have in the fridge/pantry. Best of all, you can make it in only a few minutes with virtually no prep so it’s perfect for rushed mornings.

Ingredients

  • 2 extra large organic/free range eggs
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil/ghee/butter

Filling Ideas

  • 4 mushrooms
  • Couple of rosemary spikes (if you have them)
  • 50g/2oz goat’s cheese or other grated cheese of your choice

OR

  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • couple of basil leaves
  • 50g/2oz goat’s cheese or other grated cheese of your choice

Feel free to experiment with any other vegetables and fillings that you like, ham and bacon are also good (if using bacon you’ll need to cook it first).

Method

Chop up whatever you’re using as a filling and set aside. Beat the eggs into a bowl and add the salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan to a medium heat and once hot add half the olive oil/ghee/butter. If you’re making the mushroom and goat’s cheese omelette, fry the mushrooms and rosemary spikes for a couple of minutes until they’re browned then remove from the pan and mix through the goat’s cheese. Similarly, if using tomato I like to chop it up and fry it in half the olive oil for a minute or so with a little chopped basil then mix through the goat’s cheese once removed from the heat.

Remove the filling from the pan, set aside and clean the pan then return to the heat. Once hot, add the remaining olive oil/ghee/butter and allow to heat for 10 seconds or so (it should sizzle) then add the beaten egg mixture and allow to cook for around a minute until you can see the eggs have cooked about half way through. Add your topping to half of the pan (the left hand side if you’re right hand sided), then with a spatula lift the right side of the egg mixture away from the pan and fold it over the filling on the left side (reverse if you’re left handed). Allow to cook for around another minute until the omelette is golden brown then remove from the pan and serve immediately. For extra nutrition add a side of spinach or your favourite greens.

Note: it’s completely up to you how you like to enjoy your vegetables, you may wish to skip the first step of frying them and simply cook the eggs for a minute or so then add the uncooked veggies as your omelette filling.
