You don’t feel like serious cooking. You also don’t want the low nutritional value of fast food or restaurant takeaway. You want something reasonably healthy, but easy as anything. What’s the solution?
Low cooking time, low prep time, and no matter what you put in it, at least the calories aren’t empty. You can do almost anything with this remarkable dish. If you’re afraid you can’t keep an omelette together, don’t worry: just chop it all up and call it a “scramble.”
Don’t like eggs? Then omelettes are the very best way to eat them, because it’s so easy to overwhelm the flavor and texture of eggs with other ingredients, giving yourself all that nutrition without the parts you don’t like.

An omelette can be a full one-dish meal, but if you want more, add bread or toast for carbs. Put some strips of bacon on the side. Fried potatoes make a great side dish, too. Though it’s not a traditional combination to my knowledge, Cream of Tomato Soup can be a wonderful starter for any egg-based meal.
