Herby omelette

Sharing is caring!

Herby omelette is one of my favourite go-to lunch recipes, It’s quick easy and most importantly delicious!

Easy to prepare, super quick to cook and just three ingredients, perfect for those times when you’re just grabbing lunch at home alone, so want something low fuss but still healthy and flavoursome.

A herby omelette will be cooked and ready to eat in just a few minutes. I just can’t resist those soft folds of herb flecked eggs cooked in butter.

I serve alongside just some simple rocket leaves and a bowl of blueberries and yogurt to pack in some extra goodness.

Herby Omelette Ingredients

How To Make Herby Omelettes

  • Melt the butter in a small frying pan over a medium heat.
  • Whisk the eggs together gently in a cup, stir in the fresh herbs.
  • Tip the egg mixture into the frying pan and gently push it in from the sides using a spatula and let the raw egg mix run into the space left. Keep doing this until all the egg is set.

How To Use Up Left Over Omelettes

  • If leftover omelette ever happens, which is rare, I like to stuff it into a ciabatta roll with salad.
