  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, grated (½ cup = 2oz. Don't forget to check your cheese is vegetarian - it shouldn't contain rennet)


  • Heat the oil in a pan (non stick if possible) on a medium heat.
  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and mix well.
  • Pour the egg mix into the pan.
  • Using a spatula, ruffle the omelette so it doesn't stick.
  • Let it cook for about 3 minutes.
  • 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 cheese, if using.
  • Fold one half of the omelette on top of the other.
  • Slide it on to a plate - the heat from closing the omelette will finish cooking the inside.
  • Season with salt and pepper (be sure to do this after cooking - the flavour comes out so much more!).
  • Enjoy your perfect omelette.
