What you will need

3 eggs

a pinch of salt

a splash of water

a knob of butter

A handfull of grated cheese

How to cook


Whisk eggs with salt and water

Whip up the eggs with a little salt and a splash of water. the water improves the texture of your omelette.


Melt some butter in a pan

Melt a little butter in a nonstick pan over medium heat.


Pour in the eggs

When the pan is hot and the butter melted, pour in the eggs.


Cook gently

Cook gently, swirling frequently. You want to cook the eggs most of the way through without browning them. You can sometimes lift one edge of the set egg and let the runny egg run underneath if it is cooking unevenly.


Add a sprinkling of cheese

Sprinkle some cheese over the eggs. Continue cooking.


Release when set

When the cheese is melted and the egg is set, gently release the egg from the outside edge of the pan.


Roll out onto a plate

Guide the egg to continue rolling to the bottom of the pan, then scoop under it and guide it out onto the pan.
