There is nothing that I love more than a quick, tasty and filling lunch. Or breakfast.

This low-carb omelette (or omelet for my American friends) is so easy to put together but is full of all of the delicious flavours of Italy. Creamy fresh mozzarella meets salty prosciutto, and they get together with their best friends, tomato and basil, and party together in your mouth.

If you wanted to turn it into a full meal, you could pop a nice keto friendly side salad with it and you’d be good to go. Enjoy!

  2. While heating, quarter the tomatoes, shred the basil and chop the prosciutto and mozzarella into small pieces.

  4. Cook until the top and centre look almost set, then scatter the mozzarella, prosciutto, tomatoes and basil over one half of the omelette. Easy Italian Melt Omelet
  5. Fold the omelette over the fillings, turn the heat off and leave to sit for a minute. Drizzle with the remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil.
  6. Slide the omelette on to a plate and eat while hot. I prefer to eat my omelette when it is fresh cooked, but you could store it in a covered container in the fridge for up to three days and reheat it prior to eating. Easy Italian Melt Omelet
