Souffle Omelette with Goats Cheese & Spinach

A souffle omelette is an amazing way to get a decent sized omelette out of just 2 eggs.   Very handy for when you open the fridge in the morning and realise that you should have gone shopping the previous night and are staring at a couple of eggs with a hungry husband on your hands…or a hungry tummy yourself!  This is also a lovely light supper dish as well as a decent breakfast.

We eat a lot of eggs for breakfast and with my baking can easily get through a couple of 30 egg trays.  So to be caught with just 2 eggs can happen towards the end of the week.   This recipe can be a live saving when you are low on eggs but is just as filling as more.

Fillings can vary for your own personal choice.  Mix it up a bit and live precariously through your omelettes!  This one is one of my favourites..although sometimes I substitute rocket instead of spinach.
