The basic omelette is a classic and very versatile old favourite.

It is a great quick and easy dish to throw together for breakfast, especially when you are short on time, but it can also be an excellent addition to any meal of the day.

You can either eat it on its own or have it with a variety of fillings.

You don’t have to always look up different omelette recipes to try, why not experiment and invent your own fillings, that way you are eating exactly what you enjoy.



Get your ingredients together.


Beat the eggs and add 1 tablespoon of cold water in a bowl until combined. Season with salt and pepper if required.


Heat a frying pan over medium to high heat until just warm and add the butter.

Tilt pan back and forth until butter coats the pan and sizzles.


Give the eggs a quick beat again and pour into the pan.

Tilt pan back and forth so eggs cover pan base. Using a wooden or rubber spatula, drag cooked egg from outer edge into centre.

Tilt the pan so the rest of the uncooked egg comes into contact with base and cooks.

Then Fold the cooked omelette in half and slide or flip onto your plate.

Finish by sprinkling with the cayenne pepper or the garnish of your choice.

My Name is Raymond Renard and I run I am a great believer that food should be pleasurable to look at, plus be healthy, enjoyable and fun to eat. I was a chef for many years but now just enjoy cooking healthy stuff for fun, which I like to share in order to help others see that it isn't just junk food that can be enjoyable. Plus I also like to encourage others to do the same. I am married with 2 grown up daughters who are also married and great cooks in their own right, and hopefully they will be making some healthy dishes and showing them off on here in the future.

I sometimes refer to this recipe when I want something quick to eat, then just throw in a few other ingredients to make it different.
