Whether it’s a tasty American-style breakfast or a French lunch classic, the omelette is healthy, versatile and simple to make.

No matter what you want to do with your omelette, it will start out in the pan just like scrambled eggs.

Fluff the raw eggs with a fork, pour into a medium heat pan, and be sure to cook them low and slow to avoid browning and sticking.

Lift the sides lightly with a spatula, and tip/roll the pan to allow the uncooked egg to flow to the edges.

When everything begins to set, add your filling of choice (be careful not to overdo it though), cook, fold and slip onto a plate.
