Big Breakfast Omelette

My fiancé loves an omelette to set him up for the day, especially what I call the Big Breakfast Omelette.

Start by heating a frying pan and melt a bit of butter. Slice half an onion – we prefer red – and add that to the melted butter, along with a few cherry tomatoes. Season with pepper. I don’t use salt as the bacon will be salty enough.

Give these a little time to soften and then add some chopped mushroom and bacon of your choice. You could also add some sausage slices.

Once everything has started to cook nicely, whisk four eggs in a bowl and add to the pan. Let the egg sit still for a good minute or so, until you start seeing bubbles on the surface.

Gently pull the edges back with a fish slice and allow the raw egg from the top of the omelette to run down underneath.

You may like to add a little grated cheese at this point and also some chopped spring onions. If you like your omelette well done, you could pop it under the grill, just to firm up the top. If not, fold it in half in the pan, don’t worry if it breaks, we’re not on TV(!) and allow the heat to just cook the middle a little longer, before transferring to a plate.

For me, I prefer something a little lighter and my filling of choice is smoked salmon – I just by the trimmings from the supermarket, which are a fraction of the cost of the posh stuff.
