Mum’s Egyptian Omelette

2010 October 27
by Reemski

This omelette was a staple while I was growing up. It’s simple, filling, dead easy and a bit different to the classic French style omelette.

This omelette serves 1-2 people, double it easily. You do need an oven safe pan for it as you need to pop it under the grill.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp self raising flour
  • cooking oil/butter
  • 1/2 big bunch of parsely finely chopped
  • 1 small brown onion finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Soften the onion in a splash of oil, and pre-heat your grill.
Once soft, add the chopped parsley and continue to soften gently.
Meanwhile, lightly beat the 3 eggs with the flour, salt and pepper.
Turn the heat up on the frypan, and when hot (without burning the onion/parsley mix) add the eggs and swirl till the egg coats the parsely/onion mix.
Once the edges start looking cooked, throw the pan under the hot grill for about 7 minutes.
It’s ready when it’s golden and puffed.
Serve as wedges on toast, with slices of cheddar cheese

    Omelettes are my preferred way of enjoying eggs. This looks mighty tasty Reem! The addition of flour is something I must try.

    Yum! This is delish. I love omelettes under the grill that puff up – I love eating them Leb style with flat bread and pickled turnip 🙂

    Awesome! We have the same one, but we add the zuchinni core into it. We do it in a pan but mostly it’s deep fried until crisp on the outside. Man it’s good!

    Makes me want brekkie again! Looks delish and would be amazing with the melted cheese.

    Apart from the flour, this is how I always do my omelettes. Can’t beat that fluffy thing. My favourite omelette was one done for breakfast in the Maldives – green chilli & onion, served with gravy from a fish curry. Yum! Omelette and curry have a great affinity.

    Sound simple & delicious. Love the idea of having slices of it on toast. Yum!
