Ingredients

Method

1.Heat olive oil in a frying pan 
over a high heat. Add mushrooms and a pinch of salt and pepper 
and cook for 4 minutes, or until golden. Reduce the heat to medium, then add 20g of the butter and the garlic and cook for another 20 seconds, or until mushrooms are golden and 
the garlic just starts to colour. 
Stir in parsley, then transfer 
to a plate and set aside.
2.Crack eggs into a bowl, then add a pinch of salt and pepper and beat lightly with a fork.
3.Place a 20cm heavy-based, non-stick frying pan over a low 
to medium heat, then add remaining butter. When butter starts to foam, add the egg, tilting pan. Use a spatula to evenly 
spread egg over the surface, pushing egg from the edge 
of the pan to the centre.
4.When omelette starts to 
cook and becomes firm, but still 
a little raw on top (after about 
1 minute), sprinkle mushroom mixture, Gruyere and ham over 
half the surface. Use the spatula 
to flip the other half of omelette over to cover filling. Cook for another minute, or until the 
base of omelette is just set, 
then carefully slide out onto 
a plate. Serve.
