    What do you put in yours?

    C'mon, we all know they're nice "free" snacks when you're feeling peckish.

    My own little additive of choice is honey and mustard dressing (relax low-carberos) - a dash of it is enough, and doesn't add any noticeable carbs to the dish. Mix in some well chopped tomato, some cajun spices... blast I'm hungry.

    I put all sorts in my omelettes but a favourite is diced chicken, red pepper and dollops of Philadelphia cheese with garlic and herbs. Whack it under a hot grill, once the underside is cooked normally, in a pan on the hob and when it starts to slightly brown......slide onto a plate and enjoy!!!

    Oh my. I just had an idea. A friend of mine makes chorizo baked in red wine... I'm forming a cunning plan.

    Marmite in an omelette??? Sounds good to me - I'm assuming you just mix it in with the egg before you cook the omelette?
