Top 10 quick and cheap veggie meals [#6: Cheese Omelette]

Updated on November 2, 2012
Cast your vote for Cheese Omelette

If you want super-quick, tasty and pretty, darn cheap – give this a go. Omelettes are easy once you know how. The trick is to get the oil very hot before you start and not to over whisk the eggs. I like to serve this on a couple of rounds of bread topped with baby spinach and sliced tomato.

APPROX COST (per serving): £0.50 / $0.80

Ingredients

  • ½ tablespoon Oil (preferably sunflower (NOT olive oil))
  • 2 slices Bread
  • 1 Tomato, sliced

  • handful Cheese (your choice), grated
  1. Put the bread slices on your serving plate; add the spinach and sliced tomatoes on to of the bread.
  2. Heat the oil in a small, non-stick frying pan.
  3. Break the eggs into a bowl and stir so that the yolks break and mix. (Do not wisk.)
  4. When the oil is very hot and spread across the pan (including the edges) add the egg mixture.
  5. With a spoon, lift one edge of the omelette; tilt the frying pan towards that edge; and allow the uncooked egg to run into the space left by the lifted edge.
  6. Repeat the above until no more egg runs.
  7. Quickly add the grated cheese.
  8. Fold the omelette over in the pan.
  9. Turn the hob off, and spoon the omelette gently onto the serving plate.
