Chorizo omelette recipe, from our academy’s recipe selection.
1 tsp olive oil
2 small shallots, finely chopped
20g chorizo, finely chopped
1 egg white
a small pinch of sea salt (optional – the chorizo will add plenty of flavour) a pinch of ground black pepper
20g Cheddar cheese, grated (use dairy free if preferred)
Heat half of the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chorizo and shallots and fry for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Transfer to a plate.
Whisk the eggs, egg white, salt and pepper in a jug.
When cool, wipe the base of the frying pan with kitchen roll, to remove any debris.
Place the frying pan back over a medium heat. Add the remaining oil and tilt the pan to spread the oil around.
Pour the eggs into the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes undisturbed, until the centre of the omelette is quite firm.
Distribute the cooked shallots and chorizo over one half of the omelette. Top with the cheese. Cook for 4 minutes undisturbed, or until the omelette is nearly cooked.
Carefully slide a spatula underneath the omelette and fold in half.
Turn off the heat and leave the omelette in the pan for 3-4 minutes, to continue cooking. Serve.
