  • Mixing Bowl
  • Pan


  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Shallot finely chopped
  • 30 grams Brie Cheese more or less is fine, it is not an exact science. Look at the picture to see abouts how much I used.
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper freshly cracked
  • 1 tbsp Butter plus more for brushing
  • Salt to taste


  • In a mixing bowl combine the eggs, shallot, and black pepper.
  • On a very very hot pan add the butter, and once melted pour in the egg mixture. Do not touch at all for 15-20 seconds.
  • Shake the pan violently, sprinkle in the salt, and add the slice of brie cheese to the edge of the setting eggs. Let set for 10 seconds.
  • Shake the omelette to the edge of the pan so the eggs fold over on themselves. Get a plate near the edge of the pan and tip the eggs onto the pan thus sealing the omelette. Use a butter knife to brush a dab of butter over the omelette, letting it melt all over the eggs.
