Sturdy, pancake-like flat omelettes are the kind to go for when you’re hungry. The quantities of additional ingredients can be much more generous than in the filling for a folded omelette. This omelette with a savoury tomato and cheese topping makes a filling lunch or supper snack.


  • 4 eggs
  • salt and freshly milled pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cold water


Crack the eggs into a basin, add the seasoning and water. Mix thoroughly with a fork and set aside while preparing the topping.

Melt the butter for the topping in a saucepan. Add the chopped onion, cover and cook gently for 4–5 minutes or until the onion is tender. Add the tomato purée and mixed herbs, cook for a moment and then draw off the heat. Trim and chop the bacon rashers. Fry in
