Omelette with Selected Fillings

Serves: 1 or as required

Cooking Time: 5 minutes

Hint: A filling will make this a complete substantial meal


  • 2 eggs
  • 15 ml (1T) water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 10 g butter

Filling Options:

  • roasted vegetables
  • grated cheese, mixed with chopped parsley
  • chopped ham and tomato
  • flaked tuna


  • To make the omelette: Beat the egg, water, salt and pepper together.
  • Heat the butter in a small frying pan until it starts to bubble.
  • Swirl the pan around for the butter to cover the whole surface and then pour in the egg mixture. Tilt the pan to cover the entire base with egg.
  • Use a spatula and draw the sides of the omelette into the centre and let any extra liquid egg run to the edges. Cover the pan with a lid or even a dinner plate and remove when the omelette is almost set.
  • Spoon your preferred filling onto one half of the omelette and, using the spatula, turn the other half over the filling. Tilt the pan and slide the omelette onto a dinner plate. Serve.
