As omelettes are so quick and easy to make, it's probably better to make an individual omelette for each person rather than make one huge omelette. Either way, I would not recommend making a single omelette for more that three people as it would not cook properly.

Ingredients

  • 2 large free-range eggs
  • 50 g ( 2 oz) gruyere cheese, grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Splash of cream or milk (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil

Method

  1. Break the eggs into a bowl with the salt, pepper, milk and cheese
  2. Mix roughly with a knife. Don't whisk - it's nice to get some white and yolk only areas in the omelette
  3. Add the butter to a small frying pan
  4. When the butter is foaming add the mixture to the pan
  5. Fry for 2 minutes on this side, pulling the solid edges to the centre with a fork
  6. Flip over and fry for 1 minute on the other side
  7. Slide on to a warm serving plate, folding the omelette - the last bit of cooking is done one the plate this way

Variations

Experiment with various cheeses, chopped herbs such as chives or parsley.

Rub the pan with half a garlic clove prior to frying (discard the garlic).

Add a handful of microwaved mixed vegetables just before folding over.
