Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • oil , for brushing or spraying
  • 2 balsamic pickled onions , drained and thinly sliced
  • 12 cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 25g blue cheese , such as Stilton, coarsely grated
  • celery sticks, to serve
  • Little Gem lettuce , to serve
  • radishes , to serve
  • chutney , to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Beat 3 eggs with a large whisk. Season with a little salt and some ground black pepper. Brush or spray a small non-stick frying pan (the diameter of the base needs to be about 19cm) with oil and place over a medium-high heat.

  • STEP 2

    Pour the egg mixture into the frying pan. As the eggs begin to set, use a wooden spoon to draw the cooked egg towards the centre 6 or 7 times, working your way around the pan.

  • STEP 3

    Scatter half the onions, tomatoes and cheese over the omelette and cook for 3 mins more or until the eggs are just set.

  • STEP 4

    Carefully loosen the sides with a heatproof palette knife and slide the omelette onto a plate, folding in half as you go. Make the second omelette in the same way. Add celery sticks, Little Gem lettuce, radishes and a small pot of chutney to each plate, then serve.
