  • 8 Eggs large
  • 75 mls milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 Courgettes sliced (enough to generously fill fry pan in single layer)
  • 1 Garlic clove crushed
  • 100 g Mature Cheddar cheese grated (or to taste)


  • Pre-heat your grill to a high heat.
  • Whisk the eggs together.
  • Add the milk and seasoning and whisk again.
  • In a large frying pan heat up the oil to a medium high heat and fry the courgettes and garlic for about 6 minutes on both sides until cooked through and turning golden.
  • Turn down the heat to medium and add the whisked egg mixture.
  • As the omelette starts to set run a spatula around the outside and tipping the pan to allow the raw egg to escape over the sides of the omelette to speed up the cooking.
  • You can also slide you spatula into the body of the omelette to allow raw egg to reach the bottom of the omelette too.
  • Once you have repeated this process to the stage where there are only a few millimetres of raw egg left on top, scatter on the grated cheese.
  • Put under the grill and cook until golden and puffed up! (If you're using a non-stick pan that's not suitable for sticking under the grill then just slide the omelette onto a heatproof platter or baking tray).
  • Enjoy!
