Method

  1. Season the eggs well; melt the butter with the oil in a 20cm non-stick pan over a medium-high heat. Swirl around the pan, increase heat, then pour in the eggs.
  2. Swirl around the pan, then leave for a few secs so the eggs begin to set. Using a fork, pull the mix into the middle from the edge, so that raw egg runs into gaps.
  3. Continue until the base is almost set (the top will still seem a bit runny). Either fold and serve at this stage for a plain omelette, or add your filling ingredients.
  4. Fry the pancetta for a few mins, until it releases some fat. Add some spring onions and fry for a couple of mins. When the omelette is ready, spoon in the pancetta and spring onions, then scatter over Gruyère
