basic omlette (h)

To prepare an omelette there are two key methods:

To fry

Mix the happy eggs quickly with a fork; add the cream and mix.

Pour into a hot buttered frying pan. Once the base has begun to cook sprinkle over the filling before folding 1/3 of the omelette into the middle and then the remaining 1/3 into the middle. 

Flip the omelette over to finish cooking before sliding the omelette whole onto a plate.

To bake

Mix the happy eggs and cream before adding the ingredients.

Pour the entire mixture into a deep, hot, oiled pan, keeping the pan on heat until the base and sides have just begun to colour and pull away from the sides.

Place the pan in a medium oven at 180ºC for 5-10 minutes until the middle is cooked and browned before turning out and serving in slices.
