Originally a French dish, omelettes can make an easy, protein-rich, healthy meal. Not just for breakfast, they're also perfect for a hearty lunch or dinner. Just add a side salad or some bread.

Once you have a basic omelette down pat, experiment with different ingredients and flavours by adding seasonal vegetables, meats, or a variety of cheeses (think feta, halloumi or cheddar).
