Leek & cheese omelette

Method

  • Preheat overhead grill to the highest degree.
  • Heat the oil and a little butter in a pan and gently saute the leek and seasonings until tender.
  • Then beat the eggs, cream and seasonings with a fork.
  • Heat a good dollop of butter in a large non-stick pan, add the egg mixture and cook until just set, pulling in from the sides with a wooden spoon as you do so as soft curds form. Then top with the leeks and cheeses, and cook under the overhead grill until the omelette just starts to rise and brown.
  • Serve as is flat on a plate, or folded in half, with good crusty toast on the side.
