Basic Omelette

Serves: 1

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 3 – 4 minutes


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon (5g) butter
  • Optional – 50g white cheddar or a small portion of cooked, soft vegetables e.g., mushrooms, onion or spinach.


  1. Combine the egg and milk in a small bowl and whisk.
  2. Heat the butter in a small non-stick frying pan, cook the egg mixture over a low heat. Do not use a high temperature or the egg will burn and stick to the pan.
  3. Using a spatula “pull” the egg mixture gently to the centre of the pan, do this until the egg is cooked and the omelette set, it will look like a thick pancake.
  4. If adding cheese or vegetables, add now.
  5. Fold the omelette over.
  6. Transfer to a plate and allow to cool slightly, cut into bite sized strips before serving. Always test the temperature of the food before giving to baby.
