Once you've perfected the art of the omelette, you can enjoy this protein-filled dish for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here are Shahir's tips for getting it right every time. 


  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 thin slices of Brie cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped chervil (or another delicate herb)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)


In an 8-inch non-stick pan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk eggs until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

Slowly pour eggs into hot pan and continuously move egg mixture until egg starts to set on the bottom, about 30 seconds. Add cheese and herbs to one half and roll or flip as desired.
