Lightning Egg Omelette

Eggs are great-tasting on their own, but also work as main ingredients in such dishes as omelettes. Enjoy it at breakfast or lunch!

For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of stale bread
  • 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp grated Gruyere cheese
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 3 tbsp pepper
  • Salt to taste


Dip bread slices in milk and arrange them at the bottom layer in a deep buttered pan.

Pour Gruyere cheese as a layer on the top of the bread slices.

Mix with salt and pepper in a separate bowl. Add the egg mix to the baking dish as a layer on the top of the cheese.

Cook in oven until the top is turned in to golden brown.

Serve hot sprinkled with grated cheese.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
