• 3 medium free-range eggs
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (such as fresh chives, dill and flat-leaf parsley)


  1. 1

    Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk together until the yolks and whites are well combined.

  2. 2

    Set a 20cm non-stick frying pan over a high heat. When the pan is hot, add the butter. As it begins to sizzle, pour in the egg mixture. Using a spatula, stir slowly for 15-20 seconds, as if you were making scrambled eggs.

  3. 3

    Reduce the heat to medium-low and place your herbs or choice of fillings around the centre of the omelette.

  4. 4

    As soon as the egg begins to set on the bottom (about 1 minute), fold a third of the omelette towards the middle of the pan, enclosing the filling.

  5. 5

    To remove the omelette from the pan and create the classic two-fold rolled effect, tilt the pan, slide the omelette out and use your spatula to create the final fold.
