Recipe: Cheddar and Red Onion Omelet

This recipe is by Angela Henery (@AngelaH57 on Twitter)

A very hungry man appears in the kitchen, and I suggested an omelet as a quick and tasty option!


3 Eggs
1½oz Cheese (Grated)
¼ medium sized Red Onion
2 tsp. Oil
Black Pepper
Peas (definitely optional)


  1. Crack 3 eggs into a bowl, season with black pepper and whisk
  2. Put oil in frying pan and heat
  3. When oil is hot agitate the pan to coat it with the oil and add the onion, it’s at this point my assistant (hungry man) reappears and adds a few peas to the pan, fry these and the onion for 1 minute.
  4. Add the eggs (again agitate the pan to spread the egg out evenly) and after few seconds sprinkle the grated cheese over the top.
  5. Leave on a gentle heat until the egg looks set on the top.
  6. Now flip it over just to ensure it cooks through (leaving it on this side for about 30 seconds)
  7. Fold in two in the pan and slide out onto a plate.

I am informed that this was good with chips, however it could be served on its own or with a salad.
I used Essential Waitrose English cheddar (4 Strength) as it needs to be a good tasty cheese.
