- Heat the oil in an omelette pan measuring about 20-23cm wide.
- Pour in 1/3 of the eggs. Swirl around the pan to make an even layer.
- Cook for 2 minutes until set underneath. Flip over and cook for one minute on the other side. Transfer to a plate
- Repeat to make two more then leave to cool.
- Steam the broccoli for 6 minutes until just cooked. Cool, then finely chop.
- Put the omelettes flat on a board and spread the cream cheese over the omelettes . Top with the chopped broccoli, tomatoes and Cheddar cheese.
