Chilli Cheese Omelette Directions

  1. In a bowl, beat the eggs and stir in the milk until the mixture is consistent
  2. Add the grated cheese and mix thoroughly
  3. Heat the oil in a small frying pan then tip in the onion, coriander and chilli and stir round the pan for a second or two so they soften a little
  4. Add the eggs to the pan and push them into the centre as they start to cook, tilting the frying pan so the runny eggs go to the edge
  5. Once the underside of the omelette is cooked, scatter over the cheese and cook for about a minute until the omelette is just set and the cheese has melted.
  6. Carefully fold the omelette using a palette knife and slide from the pan to a serving plate.
  7. Eat while the omelette is hot and the cheese still melted.
