Get Cooking!

Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add 1 tablespoon of butter and allow it to foam.

Once butter is foaming, add eggs and begin to lightly scramble with a heat proof spatula. Lower the heat if the eggs are setting too quickly. Once the eggs have set on top, turn off the heat and gently fold the omelette.

Alternatively, pick up the handle of the non-stick pan, and hold it perpendicular to the plate. Tap the handle of the pan and allow the omelette to roll and fold on to the plate. Gently shape the omelette into an oval. Enjoy warm.
