This omelette recipe, submitted by Ydavelds is slightly different from many other omelettes. First it is not folded but left open. The reason for this is so that lots of Lea and Perrins can be sprinkled on it. We wondered whether Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce would taste good with an omelette but it goes surprisingly well.

Two types of cheese are added, cheddar and Parmesan which gives it a unique taste. The cheeses are added to the egg mixture rather than on top of the omelette and we were concerned that a cheese and egg mixture would stick to the pan but it didn't stick at all.

Overall we were very impressed with the taste and texture and would recommend this breakfast omelette for any time of day. But we decided to take it one stage further and make a video of the of the whole process and time it. After all, a breakfast omelette needs to be quick at such a valuable part of the day.

When we cooked it for the first and only time it took us under eight minutes and that includes preparation. Not bad and eminently suitable for a rushed breakfast. So take a look at the recipe below with the pictures and if you don't believe it can be prepared and cooked in under eight minutes then take a look at the accompanying video for proof!

The recipe specifies exact amounts but feel free to vary those according to your taste.


2 medium eggs

Tablespoon of grated Parmesan Cheese

3 tablespoons of grated Cheddar cheese

red onion, chopped
Worcestershire Sauce - lots!
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Preparation Before Cooking
Grate the cheese.
Finely Chop the onion

Cooking Equipment
Frying pan
A spatula or similar to flip the omelette over.

Step 1: Whisk eggs, cheeses, onion, salt and pepper in a jug or mixing bowl.

Step 2: Warm oil in frying pan or skillet.

Step 3: Pour mixture into hot pan.

Step 4: Spread mixture evenly with spatula .

Step 5: Jiggle the pan a little so the omelette doesn't stick.

Step 6: After a couple of minutes slide the omelette forward so you can get the spatula underneath and flip over (sort of like a pancake).

Step 7: Cook underside for 1 or 2 minutes.

Step 8: Serve on a plate, flat, not folded or rolled.

Step 9: Douse in as much Worcester sauce as you can take.

Step 10: Enjoy.

Hints and Tips: Some people like to fold their omelette but I prefer it flat. It lasts longer and you can get more sauce onto it. I know the measurements here are pretty vague but it is all to suit individual tastes. I have added garlic in the past. Some people like to use milk or butter but it makes it too runny.
