Fast food at its best, a perfect omelette can be served in less than a minute. The trick is having a hot pan, and your wits about you! A few moments is the difference between a soft, delicate and light, omelette, rather than the leathery version we are all too familiar with *bleh.

    1. Whisk together eggs, 1 tablespoon of cheese, herbs, water and season with salt and pepper. Trust your instinct here, adding enough salt and pepper.
    2. Raw egg from higher welfare hens is generally safe to eat, as long as you’re not pregnant or immune suppressed.
    3. Heat a heavy based frying pan over a high heat. This will be a speedy process, so get your spatula, and serving plate ready. Once the pan is hot, add the ghee and swizzle it around the pan, to coat—if the pan is hot enough, it should sizzle straight away.
    4. This is a very quick process, so have your wits about you! It will only take about 30–45 seconds to cook. Add the egg mixture and begin to quickly pull the egg from the edge, into the centre, tilting the pan so the runny egg covers the the area where you have just scraped. Do this about 3–4 times, beginning at 12 o’clock and working your way around the omelette. Sprinkle with the remaining tablespoon of cheese and allow to cook for 5 second.
    5. Have a peak underneath, it should be golden yellow. The centre will be soft, but will continue to cook when served. With a serving plate to the right of the pan, tilt the pan toward the plate. Using a spatula, curl the omelette from the left edge, and gently fold/roll it toward the plate. Serve and enjoy!
