The Egg Guy's 40 second Omelette

Eggs, butter, water – how simple it is to make my favorite way of eating eggs. When you make one for you, make one for me.

Cooking Time:
40 seconds
Serves: 1

2 Eggs (Grade 7s are best)

1 tablespoon of butter or margarine

2 tablespoons of water

¼ to ½ cup of filling, e.g. ham or grated cheese

Salt and pepper


You will also need a nice wide non stick frying pan, around 26cm in diameter.

1. Combine the eggs and water in a mixing bowl and beat until blended. Add the salt and pepper, as much or as little as you like.


2. Heat the butter and margarine in the frying pan until it is sizzling hot, but not brown and burnt. Then pour in the egg mixture.


3. It will start to cook around the edge of the pan. Using your slice, pull the cooked egg towards the middle and tilt the pan a little so the egg that is still runny goes into the area you have cleared at the edge of the pan.


4. Do an area at a time, until all the egg is set and won’t flow – this only takes half a minute or so – and the egg covers the whole of the bottom of the pan. Don’t worry if the top of the omelette is still a bit wet – it will keep cooking when the omelette is folded over.


5. Now put all of your filling onto the top of the omelette. There’s a trick to this, put the filling onto only half the omelette, because you are going to fold the other half over onto the bottom half with the filling.Do this with your slice, Then slide the omelette gently onto your plate.
