Super Simple Breakfast Omelette

Omelettes are a really nice and easy way to have all the delicious breakfast stuff without the toast – and they’re super high in protein. There are loads of alternatives to fill them with: they can be spiced up with peppers and chilli and served with avo; they can be made fancy with only egg whites, mushrooms and asparagus; they can be filled with steak strips or leftover chops.

Having said that, if you pronounce an “omelette” as “om-lay,” this recipe is probably going to be too simple for you. This is just the basics, because why fix it if it ain’t broke?

5. Take the tomatoes out of the pan, if some spice remains it’s all good – it just means there is more flavour. Add olive oil and pour in your egg. Cover with a lid for about 1 minute or until it is almost cooked through.
