Omelette Omelette

Egg-based dishes are greatly cherished here due to their convenience in my kitchen. You might consider exploring Chinese-style Egg Foo Young, wholesome and portable Egg Muffins, a substantial and shareable Frittata, or the timeless favorite, Quiche Lorraine. Banish the notion that omelettes are solely reserved for breakfast—absolutely not! Omelettes prove to be a fantastic choice any time of day. Furthermore, it’s a foundational recipe that holds a place of importance in every culinary repertoire.

How to make an omelette

The process couldn’t be more straightforward:

Begin by whisking together eggs with either cream or milk, along with a dash of salt and pepper.

Next, melt some butter over medium heat and pour in the whisked eggs.

Give the eggs a quick stir, then gently lift the edges of the omelette and tilt the pan, allowing the uncooked egg to flow underneath.

Once the surface is mostly set, generously sprinkle cheese (an absolute necessity in my book!) and your chosen filling onto one side. After that, once the top has fully set, delicately fold the omelette in half and it’s ready to be served!

Tips to master your omelette game

Crafting omelettes is by no means a daunting task, yet I’d like to share a handful of pointers:

Incorporating a small amount of cream elevates the omelette’s texture, lending it a touch of opulence and smoothness. If cream isn’t available, milk serves as a perfectly acceptable substitute.

As soon as the egg is poured into the pan, swiftly stir it to initiate the cooking process. It’s important to avoid flipping the omelette, as this technique contributes to its airy consistency.

Opt for a rubber spatula when maneuvering the omelette in the pan, as it minimizes the risk of tearing.

To strike the right balance between setting the top and preventing the bottom from scorching, opt for medium heat while cooking. This approach ensures that the upper layer solidifies before the lower part incurs any browning.

What to put in omelettes

Regarding the delightful array of fillings to grace your omelette, the possibilities are truly endless! In this instance, I’ve chosen to indulge in the richness of buttery garlic-infused mushrooms, generously enveloped in a layer of melted cheese. A close contender for a delectable addition is crispy bacon, or the ever-reliable ham.

Sauteed vegetables hold a special place in my heart as well, and I often find myself incorporating olives, sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, peppers, or various odds and ends from jars conveniently stored in the fridge.

In essence, when you’re working with a fluffy, buttery omelette as your canvas, the creative potential for fillings knows no bounds. Virtually anything you choose to tuck inside will undoubtedly result in a palate-pleasing masterpiece!

  • 1 tbsp / 15g butter

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 tbsp cream (or 1 ½ tbsp milk) (Note 1)

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1/3 cup grated cheese (any melting cheese, I usually use cheddar)


  • 1 tbsp / 15g butter or olive oil

  • 150 g / 5 oz mushrooms , sliced (about 1 ½ cups)

  • 1 small garlic clove , minced

  • Pinch of fresh thyme leaves and finely chopped parsley (optional)



Mushroom Filling:

Heat butter in a small to medium non-stick skillet over high heat. Add mushrooms and cook until they take on a golden hue at the edges – approximately 1 ½ minutes. Introduce garlic, salt, and pepper, cooking until they acquire a golden hue – about another 1 ½ minutes. Once achieved, remove the mixture from the skillet.

Omelette Preparation:

Whisk together eggs, cream, salt, and pepper until well combined.
Allow the skillet to cool down slightly, then lower the heat to medium.
Add butter to the skillet, letting it melt and foam.
Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and promptly stir it a few times, akin to preparing scrambled eggs. Once the base begins to set, extend the egg to cover the entire skillet surface, as demonstrated in the accompanying video.
After waiting for 20 to 30 seconds, employ a rubber spatula to gently lift the edge of the omelette, tilting the pan to encourage the uncooked egg to flow beneath the omelette's surface. Repeat this step 2 to 3 times around the edges of the omelette.
On one half of the omelette, sprinkle a portion of the cheese. Layer on the sautéed mushrooms, followed by a scattering of thyme and parsley, and then the remaining cheese.
Cover the skillet with a lid and cook for approximately 30 seconds, or until the underside of the omelette takes on a light golden hue and the top is just set. Note that the cheese may not completely melt at this stage.
Fold the other half of the omelette over the mushroom filling to create a half-moon shape. Swiftly transfer the omelette to a serving plate, allowing the residual heat to facilitate the melting of the cheese.
This meticulous process ensures a delectably executed omelette with a scrumptious mushroom filling that's ready to be savored.


Introducing cream into the mix imparts an almost velvety and delightfully airy texture to the omelette. Should cream be unavailable, milk serves as a suitable alternative, or you can opt to omit this ingredient entirely. Exploring the realm of fillings, bacon holds a steadfast position as a beloved choice, much like its counterpart, ham! Sauté these options along with vegetables prior to assembling the omelette – follow the same procedure. I frequently introduce olives, sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, peppers, and other odds and ends from jarred delights stashed in my refrigerator. For an elegant twist, consider incorporating flaked hot smoked salmon or trout. Notably, leftovers also shine as remarkable fillings – ranging from residual roast chicken to even a rich Spaghetti Bolognese sauce! Initially dubbed "Ultra Lazy Ham Cheese Zucchini Omelette," this recipe has undergone a transformation, evolving into instructions for crafting the quintessential classic omelette. The original zucchini omelette recipe can be found here, and a helpful instructional video is available for reference. Nutritional details pertain to both the omelette and the mushroom filling. This rendition yields a substantial omelette. Should you wish to adjust the quantities, feel free to utilize the Servings scaler for a tailored outcome.
