Ingredients for Spanish Omelette

6 medium eggs
150g Serrano ham in small thin pieces
100g mushrooms
2 spring onions
50g grated cheese

How to make Spanish Omelette

  • Wipe the mushrooms clean and chop into small pieces, slice the spring onions.
  • Using a fork, beat the eggs together with a little milk and season with black pepper, add the grated cheese.
  • Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and add the ham and mushrooms, cook for a few minutes until the mushrooms are tender.
  • Add the eggs and the spring onions.
  • Cook over a high heat, and using a spatula pull the edges of the omelette into the middle tilting the pan as you go so the liquid eggs run into the space. Do this for a few minutes until only a tiny bit of liquid is left in the centre. Remove from the pan and allow to rest for a few minutes (the remaining runny bit of egg will finish off cooking)
  • Serve immediately.
