  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees.
  • Cook the spinach until tender (if using fresh). Mix with the cream cheese, half the Parmesan cheese and season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  • Whisk the eggs with the water and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and pour in 1/4 cup of the egg mixture. This will make a small, thin omelette. Cook until firm and turn over to cook the over side. Remove and place to the side. Continue to do this until all of egg mixture is used.
  • Spoon some of the spinach mixture onto an edge of an omelette and roll up. Place in a shallow gratin dish and repeat using all the omelettes.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese and bake for 25 minutes.
