In Praise of The Humble Omelette - Fresh Ingredients simply cooked the best fast food!
Recipe type: Lunch, Quick Meals
  • 2 - 3 free range eggs (depending on the size of the eggs and your appetite)
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Salt and black pepper pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil or butter (I used my Healthy Homemade Butter)
  • Fillings of your choice....
  • (pictured above)
  • 1 large fresh, chopped tomato.
  • 1 small avocado, sliced.
  • A handful of freshly picked parsley and rocket.
  • A scattering of grated parmesan.
  1. Whisk the eggs with the water and seasonings.
  2. If you need to cook some of the topping ingredients like bacon or mushrooms, do it first and set them aside.
  3. Chop and slice the other ingredients.
  4. Heat the oil or butter, use enough just to lightly cover the bottom of the frying pan.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the pan, tilting the pan to make sure it covers evenly.
  6. Allow it to cook for a couple of minutes.
  7. Now arrange the topping ingredients over the omelette.
  8. When the egg has set, using a spatula, try to gently lift and fold one side over onto the other to make a semi circle. If it is too soft, let it cook for a couple more minutes.
  9. The underside should be light golden brown and the omelette should easily slide onto a plate.
  10. Serve immediately.
