Easy Omelette

Easy Omelette

Don’t under estimate the omelette! Perfect for breakfast, lunch or tea this is one of the most versatile and easy nutritious meals you can cook.

Just add a few of your favourite ingredients and it can either be made to look a bit like a pancake, calzone or a pizza! Left over ingredients work well too – just add them as a filling.

When you think you have nothing in your fridge – apart from your trusted eggs, I promise you can make a great meal; sprinkle some seeds, grate a bit of cheese, pick a few herbs and throw in a few frozen peas and you have hardly had to think at all!


2 Eggs

1 tbs Whole milk

1 tbs Water

Salt and Pepper

Butter or olive oil for frying

Makes enough for 2 kids portions


  • Crack your eggs then add the milk, water and pinch of salt and pepper and mix well
  • Heat a knob of butter or a drizzle of olive oil in a pan. When it begins to sizzle tip the egg mixture in
  • Cook for 1 minute before adding grated cheese and any other fillings – except herbs, these are always best added right at the end
  • When you egg is cooked to your liking, add any herbs then flip half over onto itself
  • Serve immediately

How kids can help:

  • Cracking the eggs
  • Mixing the egg mixture
  • Grating cheese – if old enough
  • Choosing fillings
  • Picking and chopping up herbs (with scissors)
