This quick and simple omelette takes mintues to make, so perfect for a speedy lunch or dinner. Serve with fried tomatoes and wilted spinach

Ingredients

  • 3 medium eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Good knob of butter
  • Small handful chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 100g (3½oz) smoked Cheddar, coarsely grated

Method

  • Separate the eggs, with the whites in a medium bowl and the yolks in a larger bowl. Whisk the whites to soft peaks. Then whisk the yolks with the milk and season well. Add about a quarter of the whites to the yolks and stir in, then fold in the rest of the whites.

  • Heat the butter in a non-stick pan frying pan. Add the omelette mixture and cook for 2-3 mins, until lightly set.

  • Sprinkle with parsley and cheese, and let the cheese melt a bit. Fold the omelette over and slide it out on to a plate. Cut in half for serving, perhaps with fried tomatoes and wilted spinach.
