This delicious flat omelette from Campania has a hint of mint as well as the traditional flavours of tomato and basil. It tastes best served cold and is a perfect dish to take on a picnic, as it is solid but very tasty. If you are not too keen on eating fat, you can halve the quantity of pork fat.
Cut the tomatoes into strips and cook them in a little oil for 5 minutes. As soon as the onions are cooked through and the tomatoes soft, tip both into the egg mixture, season with salt and pepper and mix it all together very thoroughly.
