Easy Cheese Omelette Recipe

Microwave Cheese Omelette

There’s nothing quite as easy to make as an omelette, and a cheese omelette recipe can provide  fast comfort food.

All you need is a minimum of one egg per person and some cheese. Of course, a larger omelette using 2-3 eggs is better, but if you’ve only got 1 egg you can still make a tasty omelette!

For a cheese omelette recipe, any cheese will do; how much cheese is used will depend on how much cheese you have and how much you love it!  I usually use cheapest mature cheddar cheese, making an omelette a cheap and filling meal full of protein!  So long as the cheese is vegetarian, then a cheese omelette is a great easy meal for vegetarians!

The cheese in this cheese omelette partially melts during cooking, then melts further once it’s served on the plate, making a fabulously light, fluffy cheese omelette that you’ll want to make again! Easy Cheese Omelette And it’s not just cheese, you can put anything else inside – try thinly sliced tomatoes, or grated raw onion! Even small bits of ham if you have it.

I use a microwave omelette maker, which is a round shape that gives you two semi-circular halves.  Alternatively, if you’re stuck, just find/use two small microwave safe dishes that are the same size.

  1. Spray the inside of the omelette maker with oil, to prevent the egg sticking.
  2. Beat 2 large eggs.
  3. Pour half of the beaten eggs into each half and put the omelette maker in the microwave and microwave on medium power for 1 minute.
  4. Use a fork to move the mix around, so the cooked edges are on the inside.
  5. Microwave again until the mix is just set.
  6. Add your cheese and close the microwave omelette maker so the cheese is enclosed by the two egg halves.
  7. Microwave on medium power for 1 minute, enabling the egg to finish cooking and the cheese to melt.


Depending on the size of your eggs and the strength of your microwave you will have to play around a little with these timings until you know what’s right for you. You can adapt this cheese omelette recipe to be slightly different every time you make it!
