Fridge Raid Omelette


Whatever you can find in the fridge (maybe half a pepper, some leftover potatoes, some onion, a couple of mushrooms, some spinach or broccoli, the end of a block of cheddar or some goat’s cheese).

3 eggs

Herbs – fresh or dried and any combination of what’s available (parsley, rosemary, thyme, oregano, dried mixed herbs)

Some olive oil


  • Chop all the vegetables you have found.
  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan.
  • Add the potatoes and onion if you have them and cook for a few minutes until they start to turn golden brown. Add the other vegetables and cook for 1-2minutes to soften. Stir in the herbs. Pour the egg mixture over the top and allow to cook until the egg starts to set.
  • Add the cheese and finish off under the grill.
  • Serve with a salad if you have it, or on its own.
