Perfect omelette


  • 3 eggs
  • salt
  • 2 tsp butter
  • filling of your choice


  • In a bowl, gently whisk eggs with salt and 1 tbsp water. Melt butter in a medium non-stick frying pan with sloping sides over medium heat. Swirl as it melts to coat both the bottom and sides of pan.
  • Add egg mixture, but don’t stir. When edge is set, after 1 minute, use a spatula to lift edge of omelette, pulling toward the centre, and tilting pan so uncooked, liquid egg mixture runs underneath. Slowly repeat until mixture is set, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle fulling, if using one, across centre of omelette.
  • Tilt pan beside plate. For a three-fold rolled omelette, lift top third of omelette over filling, then tilt pan so omelette rolls onto itself and onto plate, smooth-side up. For folded omelette, slip spatula under unfilled side and fold over filling.
