  2. Place the pan back on the heat and swirl the eggs into it. Cook for 1 min or until set to your liking, swirling with a fork now and again.

  3. Spoon the mushroom mix over one half of the omelette. Using a spatula or palette knife, flip the omelette over to cover the mushrooms. Cook for a few moments more, lift onto a plate and serve with oven chips and salad.

Couldn't be simpler. I didn't add cheese because it needed to be dairy free so I needed plenty of black pepper and a bit of salt instead.

I love this omelette a lot . It is so easy to be prepared and yet delicious. Sometime as I don't have button mushroom, i will throw in either wild mushroom or shitake mushroom. They are just as delicious as the previosu version. Anyway thanks for sharing the instructions. Lisa

I cooked the mushrooms in a garlic infused olive oil which made it even more tasty :)

I live on omelette, you would not believe how much I have this a week, its so quick and yummy. I used one egg mixed the mushrooms with it and cooked on top, then put under the grill to melt the cheese. I do definently recommend, its a must try!

Quick, easy and delicious. I love finding recipes like this whereby tasty food can be created when in a hurry. Next time I shall try adding some onions to this - and of course any other veg!
