Step 2

Lightly spray a 20cm (top measurement) non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Pour in the egg mixture and cook for 15 seconds or until it just starts to set around the edges. Using a spatula, gently draw the edges of the omelette into the centre, allowing uncooked egg to run underneath.
