If you’re looking for an impressive dish for breakfast or brunch (or even dinner!), look no further than this mouth-watering omelette.


  • 2 beef sausages, squeezed out of their skins into bite-size pieces

  • 20g butter, diced

  • 1 cup baby kale or coarsely torn kale

  • 100g Swiss brown mushrooms, halved

  • Juice and finely grated rind of ½ lemon

  • 6 eggs

  • 80ml (1/3 cup) pouring cream

  • 60g Greek feta

  • Coarsely chopped spring onion and flat-leaf parsley, to serve


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a non-stick frying pan with the butter over medium-high heat, add sausage meat and stir occasionally for about 3 minutes until browned.

  • 2.

    Add kale and mushrooms to pan, season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper and stir occasionally for about 2 minutes until kale just wilts and mushrooms are just tender. Transfer to a bowl, squeeze over lemon juice and toss to combine.

  • 3.

    Whisk eggs, cream and lemon rind in a bowl to combine, season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe out pan with paper towels, place over medium-high heat, add butter and remaining oil and cook until butter foams.

  • 4.

    Add egg mixture and cook, pulling mixture from sides of pan into the centre as it cooks, tilting the pan to let uncooked mixture run into the empty space, until softly set (2-3 minutes).

  • 5.

    Remove from heat, scatter with sausage mixture and feta, then bake in oven for a couple of minutes to just warm through. Serve hot, scattered with parsley and spring onion.
