Ingredients

  • 3 Medium Eggs (Beaten)
  • 25g Cheeky Cow Half Fat Mature Cheese (Grated)
  • 2 Spring Onions (Finely Chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon Boiling Water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper Grounded

Optional

  • 1 tablespoon Chives (Snipped)

Directions

Method
1 Carefully break the eggs into a bowl, add the spring onion, chives, hot water and pepper, Beat well and stir in the grated cheese.
2 Heat a 20cm non-stick frying pan over a high heat.
3 When the pan is hot pour in the egg mix and immediately stir by cooking egg away from the edges, leaving the egg centre of the pan, allowing for runny, uncooked egg to fill the gaps.
4 Keep stirring, occasionally tilting the pan to encourage raw egg to find its way to the pans hot surface.
5 The eggs should thicken within 2-3 minutes giving a beautifully uneven golden surface, with a small amount of runny egg. Carefully fold one side over and transfer the omelette to the plate and garnish with chopped chives.
