Method

  • Preheat grill to hot.

  • Beat egg yolks with milk or cream until thick.

  • Melt butter over low heat, spoon in egg mixture and spread evenly over the pan with a spatula. Cook over moderate heat until the underside is set and golden.

  • Meanwhile, make the filling. Heat the raspberry conserve with the kirsch or cherry syrup. Add the cherries, warm through then add raspberries.

  • Place the omelette under the grill to cook the top slightly. Spread with filling, then tip onto a warmed plate, folding it over as you do so.

  • Dredge with icing sugar, if desired, and serve.

Top Tip

When buying eggs, look for the Lion Quality symbol: this indicates that they were British-laid and have been vaccinated against salmonella.
