Midweek Meal: Roast Pepper & Sundried Tomato Spanish Omelette

The latest in our series of midweek meals from Cooks&Co is this roast pepper and sundried tomato Spanish omelette. It’s great served warm or cold for picnics, and if you want to spice it up a bit you can add some Jalapenos for extra heat.

For omelettes, the fresher the eggs the better, but up to two weeks old is fine. Just break the eggs carefully into a bowl and season with salt and freshly milled pepper. Blend the egg yolks and whites with a large fork – the number one rule is not to over-mix – no beating or whisking.

Remember that an omelette will go on cooking even on the plate, so you should serve it immediately. Some cooks suggest that for this reason it is important to have some liquid egg left before you start folding, but if you have left too much, leave the omelette to set on the plate for a moment before eating.
