Mushroom Souffle omelette 2656 lores Preparation time 30 mins Serves 2 people


1 tablespoon olive oil
400g Swiss brown mushrooms, sliced
Salt and pepper
4 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
¼ teaspoon table salt
20g melted butter
¼ cup finely grated parmesan
¼ cup crème fraiche
Finely grated parmesan, extra, to serve
2 tablespoons finely chopped chives


  1. Heat oil in a large 25cm non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook for 6-7 minutes or until golden. Remove, cover and keep warn. Wipe out the pan.
  2. Separate eggs, placing egg yolks into a small bowl and egg whites into a large bowl. Add milk to egg yolks and whisk with a fork. Using a hand beater, whisk egg whites and the ¼ teaspoon salt until stiff peaks form.
  3. Heat the frying pan over medium heat. Brush with butter to grease. Using a large metal spoon, gently fold the egg yolks into the egg whites.
  4. Pour half the mixture into the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until golden and the eggs are just set. Spoon over half the crème fraiche, parmesan and mushrooms and carefully fold the omelette in half. Cook for 1 minute or until almost set.
  5. Transfer to a serving plate (omelette will continue cooking once removed from heat). Repeat using remaining eggs, crème fraiche, cheese and mushrooms. Sprinkle with chives, extra parmesan and pepper to serve.
