Do your omelettes often end up looking more like scrambled eggs? Here’s an almost fool-proof way to create lovely fluffy omelettes every time.


  • 2 or 3 Bird Bros eggs depending on your appetite
  • Salt
  • Butter
  • Any additional ingredients to your taste


  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add a pinch of salt and whisk thoroughly with a fork – until the white and yolk are completely blended.

  2. Heat the frying pan and add enough butter to coat the surface of the pan.

  3. When the butter is bubbling add the egg mixture and spread it out evenly by tilting the pan gently to all sides.

  4. Once the egg begins to firm up but is still soft on top you can add any additional special ingredients - pre-cooked meats, cheese, mushrooms, onions, peppers, tomatoes, fresh herbs and jalapeños – if you like it hot!

  5. Then, when your omelette is golden brown use a spatula to draw in the sides to the centre to heat up any remaining running egg. When everything seems solid, simply use your spatula and a spoon if required to fold it over.

  6. Cook for a few more moments, and serve.
