Cheesy mushroom omelette

recipe image


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • handful button or chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 25g vegetarian cheddar, grated
  • small handful parsley leaves, roughly chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten


  • STEP 1

    Heat the olive oil in a small non-stick frying pan. Tip in the mushrooms and fry over a high heat, stirring occasionally for 2-3 mins until golden. Lift out of the pan into a bowl and mix with the cheese and parsley.

  • STEP 2

    Place the pan back on the heat and swirl the eggs into it. Cook for 1 min or until set to your liking, swirling with a fork now and again.

  • STEP 3

    Spoon the mushroom mix over one half of the omelette. Using a spatula or palette knife, flip the omelette over to cover the mushrooms. Cook for a few moments more, lift onto a plate and serve with oven chips and salad.


This recipe is so adaptable – use whatever you have left over in your fridge, such as cheese, bacon, fresh herbs or sliced cooked potatoes.
