Quick and easy omelette recipe

When life gets busy, we often look for easy meals that can be made quickly. If you are running out the house but need a tasty meal idea, this recipe for an omelette which can be done in less than 5 minutes!

When you’re looking to create the perfect tasty omelette, you will have to consider the size of the pan. Too large a pan could cause the omelette to spread too thinly which is more prone to overcooking, while a small pan could make the omelette too spongy and thick to fold.

Removing your eggs from the fridge a few hours prior to making your omelette will help to form your omelette quicker once the eggs are in the pan.

Preparing all your fillings and ingredients first will help to make the process a lot quicker and easy to make before work. We are sure that you will love this easy to follow omelette recipe.
