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! 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.
- Spray the inside of the omelette maker with oil, to prevent the egg sticking.
- Beat 2 large eggs.
- 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.
- Use a fork to move the mix around, so the cooked edges are on the inside.
- Microwave again until the mix is just set.
- Add your cheese and close the microwave omelette maker so the cheese is enclosed by the two egg halves.
- 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!
