The Best Omelet Ever!

If, like me, you have mint plants popping up all over the place and taking over your garden then you’ll be grateful to find a recipe that uses up the mint, tastes amazing and is a cinch to make. This is the best omelet ever.

Goat’s Cheese and Mint Souffled Omelet

  • 4 eggs
  • 100g goats cheese (the soft rindless kind)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • 5 or 6 mint leaves
  • salt and pepper


  1. Whisk eggs, goat’s cheese and mint together with salt and pepper to taste
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan and pour in
  3. Cook on high for one minute until base is browned
  4. Turn down heat to lowest setting and place lid on fryingpan. Leave to cook for 10 minutes
  5. Remove lid (omelet should be puffed up like a souffle) – sprinkle on some Parmesan

The result is a fantastic lemony-tasting light omelet. I served it with Balsamic onions for a strong, sticky flavour.

  1. Mmm…..might be appearing on a plate near here soon, although I now trap my mint plant in a pot, planted inside a plant trough (with cut again salad leaf mix & a parsley plant).

  2. Have you got any recepies for Bind Weed? I have a lot of that popping up in my garden.

  3. I think it sounds lovely! I`m a trained cook and professional gardener now and I love the intermingling of the two. Dandelion leaves (of which we have many!!) are so well known in salads these days, but its worth trying if you haven`t heard of it folks. I sell mainly flowery plants, but if you want a browse to see the unusual ones we`ve got please feel free.

  4. I have a tomato seed question… My crops have just been totally decimated by an escaped rabbit… :O and I was wondering is it too late to propagate tomato seeds? it is still April (just very very late in April) please help!!!

  5. Hi Obese – not I wouldn’t say it’s too late.
    Pop some in now and put them in a warm spot or better still in a heated propogator. Once the seeds have germinated turn the heat off and harden them up quick. I put some cherry tom seeds in just last week.
    Failing that you always buy plants from the garden centre.

  6. Phewww thank god! I was worried then… I’m surprised no-one made a rabbit stew comment. Bravo :)
