Double Mushroom Omlette

Serves 4


  • 500g mixed mushrooms (e.g white button & portabellini), sliced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed, diced
  • ½ cup fresh peas
  • 8 XL free-range eggs
  • 4 tsp butter
  • 100g feta cheese
  • ½ lemon
  • Micro herbs for serving
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Extra virgin olive oil


Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook until golden brown. Remove a large spoonful of mushrooms and set these aside for mixing into the eggs.

To the remaining mushrooms- stir in shallot and garlic and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add asparagus and cook for 1-2 minutes until tender crisp. Stir through peas until just cooked. Remove pan from heat, set filling aside and keep warm.

Whisk eggs in a large bowl, 2 at a time. Add some of the reserved cooked mushrooms. 

Heat a drizzle of olive oil and 1 tsp butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour in the egg and mushroom mixture and swirl to coat base. Season the eggs. Cook omelette for 1-2 minutes or until just set.

Add a quarter of the warm filling to the one side. Crumble over a quarter of the feta and give everything a little squeeze of lemon juice. Close the omelette and carefully slide onto a plate.

Repeat with remaining eggs to make 4 omelettes.
