Equipment

  • 2 Non-stick frying pans
  • Bowl
  • Fork
  • Grater
  • Sharp knife
  • Chopping board

Instructions

  1. Get your ingredients together. These include;
    1x 125 g Royal Ocean Pilchards in chilli sauce
    8 eggs
    1/2 bundle spinach, shredded
    1/4 medium green pepper, chopped
    1/4 green pepper, chopped
    1/4 yellow pepper, chopped
    100 g cheddar cheese, grated
    A little oil for frying
  2. Remove the pilchards from the sauce and put in separate bowl. Use a fork to break them up into medium sized chunks. Set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tbsp oil in pan, add the spinach, 1/4 tsp salt and peppers. Saute for 3 min. Set aside. (NB- To saute is to fry quickly in a little, hot fat)
  4. Heat 1 tbsp oil in separate pan. Break  and beat 2 eggs, season with salt according to your taste.  Pour egg into pan and immediately swirl your pan around so the egg can spread and fill the base of the pan.
  5. When it’s spread over the base of your pan and appears to be “setting”, add 3-4 tbsp pilchards, 1 tbsp peppers and a handful of cheese to the lower half of the egg
  6.  Using the spatula (egg lift), gently fold the other half of the egg over the filling, making a “semi-circle” of some sort.
  7. Cook for 30 more seconds. Your omelette is ready. Repeat process with remaining ingredients.

Feel free to enjoy your omelette with a slice or two of wholemeal, brown or seed  loaf. You may also warm up the remaining chilli sauce that the pilchards were in and enjoy it together with your meal.
