Posted · Add Comment

There is a trick to making the perfect omelette, and it’s very easy. We’ll show you how to make it – you’re going to love it!

As a café catering for everyone, we offer a wide range of meals, from super healthy to sweet treats (we bake some fabulous cakes!). We are preparing more gluten free, vegetarian and vegan recipes to keep up with the requests from our customers. This recipe is published with the permission of the author,, and it is one of our favourites.

• 2 eggs
• 2 tbsp olive oil
•1 big handful cherry tomatoes (the sweeter the better)
• 1/2 cup basil, fresh (dried will work if necessary)
• 1/4 cup favourite cheese (1/4 cup = 30g; think cheddar, Monterey Jack, mozzarella. Avoid rennet if you’re vegetarian)
• salt and pepper to taste

Optional Ingredients:
• 2 spring onions
• 1 red or green chili

Wash the tomatoes (and spring onions or chilli if you’re using them) and chop into small pieces. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the tomatoes for about 2 minutes. Set aside. Clean the pan with a tissue.

Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat well with a fork, adding the salt and pepper. Heat the rest of the oil in a pan (non-stick if possible) on low to medium heat. Pour the egg mix into the pan. Using a spatula, ruffle the omelette so it doesn’t stick. As you create gaps, tilt the pan so the liquid fills the spaces. Let it cook for about 2 minutes.

Now here’s the important part: when the egg mixture looks nearly cooked, but there’s still just a tiny bit of runny egg left, drop on the tomatoes and basil (and cheese, spring onions or chilli if you’re using them).

Fold the empty half of the omelette on top of the other. Slide it onto a plate – the heat from closing the omelette will finish cooking the inside.
