From Nigel Slater's Dish of the Day
A simple omelette transformed into a meal for two with herbs, spinach and tangy goats’ cheese.


  1. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and season well. Tear the thyme and basil leaves and add to the egg.

  2. Melt the butter in a non-stick pan. Add the spinach and cook for about one minute until the leaves soften. Add the spinach to the bowl with the eggs.

  3. Place a thin slice of butter in the pan. When it starts to sizzle add the eggs. Add the sliced goats’ cheese and rosemary and cook on a low to moderate heat.

  4. Preheat the grill on a high setting.

  5. After six minutes of frying, finish under the grill until golden on top and serve.

  • 50g/1¾oz butter, plus extra for frying
