Easy Omelette

The quickest meal ever. Plus you can use left over ingredients in the fridge.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Servings 1 person

Ingredients
  

  • 3 eggs or more if you're hungry!
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 10 g butter
  • handful cooked bacon, chorizo, herbs, mushrooms whatever you fancy
  • 50 g grated cheese optional

Instructions
 

  • Pre heat your grill to full.
  • In a medium sized frying pan approx. 24cm or 9½ inches, heat the butter and olive oil.
  • If you are using raw ingredients such as bacon or mushrooms fry them until cooked.
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour into the frying pan covering your fillings.
  • As the egg starts to cook, using a spatula, pull the edges into the centre allowing the raw egg to run outwards. You don't want the egg to be completely cooked in the middle.
  • Take the frying pan off the heat and sprinkle with the grated cheese if using.
  • Place under the hot grill. The omelette will puff up, the cheese will melt and it is done when it is starting to brown.
  • Fold over (optional) and serve on a plate.
