  1. Beat the eggs with a little pepper (you can use a whisk or a fork).
  2. Heat the pan, add the oil and swish it around.
  3. Add the eggs and shake them around the pan.
  4. Using a spatula, lift the egg mixture and tilt the egg mixture in the centre towards the edge of the pan.
  5. Cook like this until set on the bottom but soft on the top.
  6. Then you can add a filling if you want to: some tomatoes, onion, red pepper, chopped herbs (like parsley and chives), grated carrot – or even some vegetables left over from last night’s meal (remember to add in the calories). Tilt the pan and fold the omelette onto a plate.

To make the perfect omelette you need a good heavy omelette pan.
