3 eggs, separated
salt and pepper
15g + 15g parmesan, grated
a handful of chives, chopped
Separate the eggs into two large mixing bowls.
Add a generous pinch of salt and a few grindings of pepper to the yolks. Whisk together and set aside.
Whisk the egg whites until firm, glossy peaks form.
Add half of the egg whites to the yolks and stir well until the whites are thoroughly combined and you have a looser consistency.
Mix in 15g of the parmesan as well as the chives.
Now add the remaining egg whites and gently fold the mixture together until well combined.
Place a frying pan over medium heat and add the butter. Allow to melt and bubble.
Pour the egg mixture into the pan and spread the mixture with a spatula. Smooth the surface as well.
Cover the pan with a lid and cook until the top is just set – about 2-3 minutes.
Remove the lid and scatter the remaining 15g of parmesan on top and cook for another minute.
Slice the omelette out of the pan onto a serving plate and fold the omelette over on itself.
