Tomato and Basil Omelette | Jamie Oliver

Hi everyone! Today’s recipe is from Jamie Oliver and it’s super simple and super yummy…it’s the classic tomato and basil omelette.


Ingredients –

·      2 sprigs of fresh basil

·      3 cherry tomatoes

·      2 large free-range eggs

·      sea salt

·      freshly ground black pepper

·      olive oil


Directions –


1. Pick the leaves off the basil and roughly tear them.

2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half on a chopping board.

3. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl.

4. Add a tiny pinch of salt and pepper.

5. Beat well with a fork until fully combined.

6. Place a small non-stick frying pan on a low heat to warm up. Meanwhile…

7. Add ½ tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and turn the heat up to high.

8. Carefully add the tomatoes and fry for 1 minute.

9. Turn the heat down to low and sprinkle over the basil leaves.

10. Carefully pour in the eggs, then tilt the pan to spread them out evenly.

11. Using a fork, swirl the eggs around the pan a little.

12. When the omelette begins to cook and firm up, but still has a little raw egg on top, use a spatula to ease around the edges of the omelette, then fold it over in half – when it starts to turn golden brown underneath, remove the pan from the heat and slide the omelette on to a plate.

And there you have it, a quick and easy lunch or dinner dish! Enjoy!
