  • 2 large eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4/1/10 cups/oz fresh dill, parsley, or coriander, roughly chopped
  • 3/1/2 oz smoked deli ham or deli turkey, roughly chopped
  • 3/4//3 oz/tbsp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 tbsp hot sauce or a pinch of chili flakes optional


  • Crack the eggs into a bowl, add salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth.
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the whisked eggs to the pan.
  • Use a spatula to swirl the eggs around for a minute to get the runny eggs to the bottom of the pan. Ensure there are no holes in the omelet and let it sit for another minute.
  • Scatter the herbs, meat, and cheese over the omelet and cover it with a lid. Cook for another 2 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your liking.
  • Serve as is, or with your favorite hot sauce or a pinch of chili flakes.
