Tips for making the recipe
- Make sure your eggs are fresh. Drop them in a bowl of water, if they sink to the bottom they are fresh and good to use, discard any that float to the top.
- Use a non-stick skillet. Cheese getting stuck is no joke! If you use a good non-stick skillet, you won’t need to spray it with any oil.
- Beat together the eggs really well. This will ensure an even texture throughout.
- Don’t add more eggs. Omelettes are meant to be single serve, if you add more than two eggs they will be tricky to cook all the way through and you risk burning the cheese.
