A good non-stick frying pan is an essential for omelette-making. Gone are the days of proving your pan for hours with salt and oil.
Timing is also essential; if you’re making more than one omelette, keep them a little undercooked to allow for reheating.
Season the eggs with salt and pepper then rub a little butter into a non-stick frying pan, heat gently then add the egg mixture, vegetables and herbs. Stir with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until the egg begins to set. Remove the pan from the heat and slide the omelette flat on to a cold plate to prevent it cooking any further. Cut in half and serve immediately.
