The basic cheese omelette is a breakfast staple. It’s so easy and delicious that it’s unfair to reach for that box of cereal for breakfast even on the weekend!

Preparation Time: 2 mins | Cooking Time: 5 mins | Serves: 1

2 – Large eggs
A knob – Butter
1/2 tsp – Thyme
Salt – To taste
Black pepper or Red chilli flakes – To taste
2 tbsp – Cheddar cheese, grated
1 tbsp – Milk

* Place a pan over low heat and let it get hot.
* Crack the eggs into a small bowl. Add in all the spices and a tbsp of milk. I always add a little milk to my eggs, it make the omelette fluffier and also takes away the smell. Beat well with a fork.
* Once the pan is hot, add the butter.
* When the butter has melted, add the beaten eggs and spread them out evenly.
* When the omelette begins to firm up but still has some liquid on top, grate the cheese directly onto the omelette. Let it cook for about a minute, till the omelette starts to turn golden brown from underneath.
* Ease around the edges with a spatula and fold the omelette in half and slide it onto the serving plate.
* Enjoy as is or with some toasted bread.

Food is never just food. I believe it’s story telling, it’s conversation. It brings people together and it speaks a universal language! I love to play around in my kitchen. The thrill of being able to create something new and sharing it with others is what fuels my passion for cooking. The fact that dear husband is a foodie and an honest critique helps!
