Recipe by Nimz_
READY IN: 20mins




  • Heat olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the Canadian bacon and cook until lightly browned.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the water and chives, along with a couple pinches of salt and some pepper.
  • Melt the butter in an 8 inch skillet over med-high heat.
  • When it has stopped foaming swirl the butter to coat the bottom of the pan and pour in the egg mixture.
  • Using the back of a fork and keeping it flat on the bottom of the pan, lightly scramble the eggs, using small circular motions.
  • As the mixture firms, hold some eggs back from the side of the pan and tilt the pan to spread the eggs over the bottom.
  • Scatter the Gruyere over the omelette, leaving a margin around the edges.
  • Add the Canadian Bacon.
  • Using a spatula, lift 1/3 of the omelette and fold it over the center.
  • Tilt the pan toward the plate so that 1/3 of the omelette hangs over the edge.
  • Invert the pan, using the spatula for support, so that it flips neatly over itself out of the pan.
  • To Serve, garnish with more chopped chives if desired and serve immediately with some sliced tomatoes.
