• 4 eggs
  • 20g grated cheddar
  • 5 slices wafer thin ham - works out to be 55g
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • You'll also need 2 heatproof zip-lock sandwich bags


  1. 1

    Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork. Grate the cheddar and roughly chop the ham, then add this to the eggs with a bit of salt and pepper and give it a good stir

  2. 2

    Pour half the egg mixture into a heatproof zip-lock sandwich bag and carefully push all the excess air out of the bag and seal it. Then do the same again with the remaining egg mixture into a second bag

  3. 3

    Fill the kettle to ¾ full, and then carefully place both omelette bags inside, leaving a little of each bag hanging over the top of the kettle and close the lid to secure the bags in place

  4. 4

    Switch the kettle on. Once it has boiled, leave it to stand for 8 minutes - don’t open the lid! - then turn it back on again for a second boil. Once boiled for a second time, carefully remove the omelette bags using a set of tongs or something similar

  5. 5

    Unzip the bags, slide the omelette out onto a plate, and tuck in. Easy peasy!

    In response to the UK Government’s April 2021 uplift of the Healthy Start voucher scheme, Marcus Rashford MBE and Michelin-starred chef, Tom Kerridge, have joined forces to launch ‘FULL TIME: Get Cooking with Marcus & Tom’. This nationwide initiative is in support of the #EndChildFoodPoverty campaign launched by Marcus in September 2020, and in partnership with his Child Poverty Taskforce. Together, the goal is to call ‘Full Time’ on child food poverty. Find out more about Sainsbury's and Healthy Start Vouchers.
