Omelettes That Don’t Need You to be a Master Chef

By Oct 8, 2018 No Comments

Ahh, the omelette.

A classic breakfast food. It can transform any ordinary morning into something mouth-wateringly magical. Worried that you don’t have the cooking skills to pull it off? We’ve gathered a couple of easy omelette recipes. Even the most inexperienced of home chefs are sure to get it right.

Got a sweet tooth?

You’ll love this! All that you need to make this sugary delight of an omelette is:

2 eggs
2 tablespoons of plain yoghurt
1 tablespoon of castor sugar
1 teaspoon of butter

You can top it with any sweet treat of your choice. We love blueberries and granola. But a dollop of honey will do the trick if you’re trying to be more budget-conscious.

Start by separating your egg whites and yolks and placing them into 2 different bowls. Beat the egg whites until they begin to form soft white peaks. Add the yoghurt and the castor sugar to the egg yolks and mix together.

Pour the yolk mixture into the bowl containing the egg whites and fold in gently using your whisk. Heat the butter in a frying pan over medium heat and pour in your mixture.

Cook until it’s golden underneath before folding over and cooking for 2 or 3 more minutes. Serve warm with toppings of your choice.

Cheesy Chow-Down Omelette

This is pretty much a classic omelette, with A LOT more cheese. What’s not to love? You’ll need:

2 eggs
2 tablespoons of water
a sprinkle of salt and pepper
1 teaspoon of butter
3/4 cup of grated cheddar cheese (or more)
a quarter cup of chopped ham

If you’re in the mood for more complex flavours, throw in some chopped tomatoes, peppers, olives. Anything you can get your hands on, really!

In a small bowl, beat the eggs, water and the salt and pepper together. Place your frying pan over medium heat and melt the butter, making sure it coats the pan evenly.

Pour in the egg mixture and cook until the top surface of the egg is thick and cooked. Place your filling on one side and fold the omelette in half. Cook for 2 more minutes and finish off by sliding your masterpiece onto a plate. Serve hot!
