Sunday : Why Not Start The Day With ...


... a Herb omelette, which is simply delicious! So quick and easy and with several variations. Ready in 7 minutes. Cooking time 5 minutes. Prep time 2 minutes.

Ingredients
Serves 1
3 medium free-range eggs
1 tsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (such as fresh chives, dill and flat-leaf parsley)

Method
1. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk together until the yolks and whites are well combined.
2. Set a 20cm non-stick frying pan over a high heat. When the pan is hot, add the butter. As it begins to sizzle, pour in the egg mixture. Using a spatula, stir slowly for 15-20 seconds, as if you were making scrambled eggs.
3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and place your herbs (or choice of fillings) around the centre of the omelette.
4. As soon as the egg begins to set on the bottom (about 1 minute), fold a third of the omelette towards the middle of the pan, enclosing the filling.
5. To remove the omelette from the pan and create the classic two-fold rolled effect, tilt the pan, slide the omelette out and use your spatula to create the final fold.

Omelettes really are such a great way to start the day, or enjoy for lunch or even a light supper.

Phil Slade said...

Three eggs is very generous for an omelette. We only ever use two at most and find that very satisfying with perhaps a little feta included. Never thought to try herbs but I might experiment with dried oregano (and spoil the omelette)?

I have never heard of an omelette like this before! Looks so good! Big Hugs!
