I'm going to begin with the first thing I ever learned to cook, an omelette. In the summer before I went to uni, I went on a holiday to Portugal with some friends - we foolishly chose the cheaper self-catering package and then realised that none of us could cook. After two of my friends tried to cook frozen peas in an oven that wasn't switched on, I felt it was up to me to take on the daunting role of chef. We took a trip to our local Dinomart (possibly the best named supermarket ever) and ended up with eggs and bacon, which I managed to turn into a omelette-like creation of which I was ridiculously proud. Omelettes are still one of my favourite things to cook today because they're so fast and so versatile, you can have basically anything as a filling! For my omelette, you will need:
- 2 eggs per person eating the omelette
- fillings of your choice
1. First prepare your fillings. I used bacon and some yellow pepper in my omelette, so first of all I cut them into bitesize pieces.
2. Next, crack two eggs into a bowl. Add a splash of milk, salt and pepper and some parsley if you have any to make it look fancy. Beat with a fork.
