How to: Fail safe Omelettes

Cooking the perfect omelette

Alice in Frames shares her sure fire method for cooking the perfect omelette, every time.

The key is starting off with beautifully fresh, free range eggs- they are the hero of the dish after all.

For cooking the perfect omelette, you’ll need:

  • a small fry pan
  • 2 fresh free range eggs
  • knob of quality butter
  • marinated feta (or a cheese of your choice)
  • freshly chopped herbs- we’ve used parsley
  • sea salt and pepper to season
  1. Crack two eggs into a bowl and whisk with fork vigorously- you want that mixture to be light and fluffy and thoroughly combined. Add in a pinch of salt.
  2. Put your fry pan over a medium high heat.
  3. Melt your knob of butter in the fry pan- once it’s melted and foaming, pour in your egg mixture- it should bubble up immediately and the edges should begin to set.
  4. Crumble some delicious marinated feta and parsley over the centre.
  5. Keep the eggs moving!  Using a spatula, move the cooked egg mixture towards the centre and move the fry pan around so the raw mixture makes its way to the edges.
  6. Continue doing this until it’s all cooked.
  7. Use the spatula to gently fold your omelette and then slide out of the pan onto your plate
  8. Crumble over some more delicious marinated feta, some more herbs and sprinkle over some freshly cracked pepper
