Quick and Easy Omelettes

Omelettes are one of our favourite easy, quick dinners or lunches. We often cook these when we've been out for the day and get back starving needing something quickly.

For the children we tend to use one egg and cook them individually - for adults we use 2 or 3 eggs. You could make bigger omelettes with more eggs in a bigger pan if you want, the process is the same.

children cooking recipesThe kids love helping with these and usually end up fighting over who helps. They break the eggs, whisk and season them and now they are a little older stir them whilst they are cooking - under adult supervision.

Variations
You can add all kinds of things to your omelette when it is still in the pan and has finished cooking. When you fold the omelette onto the plate, the filling should be on the inside. Here's some ideas - let us know of any you cook;

  • Grated cheese
