Eggs can make a great meal.  They are rich in protein, and also contain Vitamins D, E, K, B6, calcium and zinc.  Although high in cholesterol they help raise the HDL (HIgh Density Lipoprotein) also termed good cholesterol so help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.  They also contain antioxidants which help improve eye health.  Due to their high protein content eggs are thought to help keep you feeling fuller for longer and therefore taking in less calories.  Many of us do not eat enough eggs so here is a simple and tasty recipe you might like to try for yourself to increase your weekly egg intake.  This recipe can be adapted to suit your taste so mix and match ingredients to your liking.

Ingredients

1 tbs olive oil

1 medium courgette

100g semi dried tomatoes

50g pitted kalamata olives

3 medium eggs

1tbs milk (full fat)

40g mature cheddar (grated)

Freshly ground sea salt to taste

Freshly ground pepper to taste

Method

Thinly slice the courgette into discs.  Break the eggs into a bowl, add the milk and give it a little whisk until it lightens in colour a little.  Set aside.  Heat a frying pan and add in 1 tbs olive oil.  Throw in the courgette and cook for approx. 3 minutes then add in the tomatoes and olives.  Add in freshly ground salt and pepper to taste and stir.  Sprinkle over the cheese.

  1. I absolutely love making omelettes and I can’t just go for 2 or 3 egg one I go all out and use 4 usually 🙂 x

  2. Great omelette idea, I always seem to run out of inspiration when it comes to omelettes and just do boring ham/cheese/mushroom which are still nice but I think its time to be a little more adventurous

  3. This looks absolutely yummy! I am a big fan of omelettes, but get stuck thinking of new combinations, so this could be a winner!

  4. This looks SO good! I’ve been looking at courgette recipes lately as it’s something me and the kids all enjoy! This sounds perfect for us and easy to make, too! Thank you for sharing xx

  5. I have never tried courgette in an omelette before, so this will be a first for me.
    Great way to use them.
    I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂

  6. I love omelette but it rarely crosses my mind to make one because one of my girls is allergic to eggs. Your omelette looks yum.

  7. My kids will love this recipe as they love their eggs over rice so much. Will try and incorporate some semi dried tomatoes and courgette as well for a healthy treat!
    It looks delicious from here 🙂

    Much love.

  8. Omelettes are my thing right now, I am loving salmon and green beans as the ingredients currently but maybe I should try something new x
