Leek, mushroom and ham omelette
A great way to use up whatever vegetables or herbs you have in the fridge. 

2 tbsp. olive oil

A knob of butter

3 leeks, cleaned and thinly sliced

1 small onion, finely chopped

100g mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

8 eggs

100g cooked ham or bacon, chopped

25g cheese, grated

1 tbsp. parsley, chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat a tablespoon oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add a knob of butter then add in the leeks, onion and mushrooms and sauté for 4-5 minutes until lightly cooked.

Beat the eggs in a large bowl then add in the ham or bacon, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.

Take the frying pan off the heat and put the leek and mushroom mixture into the bowl with the other ingredients and stir to combine.

Heat a little more oil in the frying pan. Then pour in the egg mixture, stir gently for a moment or two, allowing the liquid egg to flow on to the base of the pan.

Continue to cook until the egg is almost set but still moist on top. This will take about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile heat the grill until hot. Place the frying pan under the hot grill for 4-5 minutes to finish cooking.

Cool slightly, then loosen the edges with a spatula and slide, or turn out the omelette, onto a large plate or board.

Cut into wedges and serve warm with your favourite bread or salad.
