As omelettes are so quick to make, it's just as easy to make one each as it is to make one huge omelette.

Method

  1. Break the eggs into a bowl with the salt, pepper and milk
  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 - this way, the last bit of cooking is done on the plate

Serving suggestions

Serve immediately

Add some tomatoes at the side and a leaf of coriander or mint so it looks different and tastier.

Also you can put a drop of mayonnaise on the top of the tomatoes and an olive.

Variations

Experiment using 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.
