You will need

  • Medium-sized non-stick frying pan
  • 2-3 eggs
  • A knob of butter
  • A whisk (or a fork if you don’t have a whisk)
  • 1/2 slices of cooked ham cut into squares
  • Grated cheese
  1. Crack the eggs and whisk them until the egg white and egg yolk are completely mixed.
  2. Heat the butter in the frying pan on a low-medium heat until melted. Be careful – get an adult to help!
  3. Pour your egg mixture into the pan and allow to cook all the way through until it looks like a yellow pancake. This should take 1-2 minutes.
  4. When the bottom of your omlette has set, gently lift the edge with a spatula and tilt the pan to allow the runny egg on top to travel to the edge of the pan. Keep doing this until there is no runny egg left (but it might still look wet on top).
  5. When all the egg is cooked (and not runny) you should add the cheese and ham to one half of the omelette and then fold the other half over.
  6. Transfer to a plate and garnish with herbs to serve. Voila! One yummy omelette.
