Method

  1. Mix most of the cheese with the ham or gammon, egg yolks, mustard, herbs and some seasoning. Whisk egg whites until stiff. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the whites into the yolk mixture until evenly mixed.
  2. Heat a splash of olive oil in a small non-stick frying pan. Pour mixture into the pan and cook for 4 mins until the underside is set and browned. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and grill for 2 mins until cheese is bubbling and golden.

Good easy to follow omelette recipe - worked a treat. I didn't have any fresh dill or basil so I used a tsp of dried basil instead. Defo use that one again - so easy!! My husband was dead impressed with this brunch!!

Didn't taste much different from a normal omelette if i'm honest, but still tasty.
