    Sackville's Note:

    This is a very simple omelette for one. If you are going to add any fillings, make sure to prepare them ahead of time. Feta cheese and dill is a favourite of mine.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 large eggs
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 1 tablespoon oil or 1 tablespoon butter, for frying

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Crack the eggs into a small bowl and whisk.
    2. 2
      Add some salt and pepper, if you like, but do not add any water, milk, or any other liquids.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil or butter in a 9-inch non-stick frying pan and pour in the eggs.
    4. 4
      In the first 30-seconds of cooking, use a spatula to create 6-10 small cuts through the omelette.
    5. 5
      This allows the uncooked egg on the top to flow down to the bottom of the pan.
    6. 6
      When the top is nearly set, sprinkle any fillings over half of the omelette and turn off the heat.
    7. 7
      Don't worry if some of the egg in the very centre isn't quite set, because the ambient heat will soon cook it.
    8. 8
      Use your spatula to flip one half of the omelette over the other and serve immediately.

      Excellent instructions. Omelettes always intimidate me but every time I make one it turns out great.

      Enjoyed this this evening. I added thinly sliced sharp cheddar cheese before folding omlet in half. Very good. Thanks for posting Sackville.
