The basic recipe for a simple omelette needs per person:

2 eggs, 50ml milk, 1tsp flour, salt, oil


Separate the eggs, whisk the egg whites with a hand mixer or a whisk until stiff. Mix the egg yolks with the milk and flour in another bowl with a whisk, then slowly stir in the egg whites with a spoon; add salt to taste. Your omelette is ready to go into the frying pan!

Pour the batter into a big hot pan with oil, move the pan around a bit so that the omelette fills it out, and fry on a medium flame from one side for 3-4 minutes until it’s golden brown underneath and solid enough to be turned around, then fry from the other side for another 3-4 minutes.

Grated cheese, ham, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, bell peppers, courgettes, baby spinach, broccoli, tinned fruit…
