The Quick and Healthy Omelette for Busy Mornings

An omelette. Quick, easy and healthy. You can fill it with leftover vegetables, cheese or meat and it is a great way to use leftovers and clean out the fridge.

Absolutely, an omelette is a perfect fit for those criteria!

Here’s a quick recipe for a delicious and versatile omelette:


2 eggs
1 tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional fillings: Leftover cooked vegetables, shredded cheese, cooked meat (sausage, bacon, ham etc.)


  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl and whisk them together until well combined and frothy. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the pan and tilt the pan to spread the eggs into an even layer.
    Let the omelette cook undisturbed for about 30 seconds, or until the edges begin to set.
    Now comes the filling! If using, sprinkle your desired fillings over one half of the omelette.
    Use a spatula to gently fold the other half of the omelette over the fillings.
    Cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the omelette is cooked through and the cheese is melted (if using).

Slide the omelette onto a plate and enjoy!


For a truly fluffy omelette, separate the egg whites and yolks. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form, then gently fold them into the beaten yolks.
If you don’t have any leftover vegetables or meat, you can add some chopped fresh herbs or shredded cheese to the egg mixture for extra flavor.
Be careful not to overcook the omelette, as it will become dry and rubbery. It’s better to err on the side of undercooked, as the omelette will continue to cook for a bit even after you remove it from the heat.
With this basic recipe, you can create endless variations of omelettes. So get creative and enjoy!
