Omelettes make a delicious and nutritious meal choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  Adaptable
and a breeze to whip up, they’re made with beaten eggs, fried with butter or oil and
often folded around a filling such as cheese, vegetables, or meat.

Ideal for gluten free, keto or low carb diets, omelettes are the ultimate light and nutrient-packed powerhouse meal.

How to cook an omelette


Classic Omelette recipe

Looking for omelette perfection? The perfect omelette is fluffy and golden on the outside and creamy on the inside.  The secret is to draw the mixture gently towards the centre of the pan, and to remove it from the heat before it has set completely.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 3 minutes

Total time: 8 minutes




3 medium eggs

½ tsp butter

1 tsp chopped fresh tarragon (optional)
1 tsp chopped fresh chives (optional)
1 tsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)



1. Break the eggs into a small mixing bowl and add the herbs (optional). Season and lightly beat with a fork.

2. Place a frying pan with a 15cm base over a medium heat and swirl the butter around the pan. Turn the heat to high and, when the butter begins to foam, add the eggs.

When the outside edge begins to set, use a spoon or spatula to draw the mixture into the centre of the omelette, allowing the liquid egg to run into the gaps. Do this for 1-1½ minutes, or until the edge is set and the middle almost set, as it will carry on cooking when taken away from the heat.

3.Use a spatula to fold the omelette in half and slide onto a plate. Garnish with chives and serve immediately.
