This flexible dish can also be served up as a light lunch along with a well-dressed crispy green salad. Using ricotta as your base cheese, you can experiment with lots of fillings, depending on what you have in the fridge. Another combination I use regularly is butternut squash, sage and prosciutto.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g new potatoes, quartered
olive oil
150g ricotta
1/2 teaspoon horseradish cream
60g parmesan, grated
salt
freshly ground black pepper
8 eggs
100g watercress
200g smoked trout, flaked

Method

  1. Boil the new potatoes in a large saucepan for 5 minutes and then drain. Heat a large frying pan and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Fry the potatoes for about 10 minutes, turning them occasionally, until golden and crispy, and set to one side.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the ricotta, horseradish, half of the Parmesan and a good grinding of salt and pepper in a bowl. Break the eggs into another bowl, season and beat lightly. Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat, and pour in half of the beaten egg. Cook for 6–8 minutes until the egg has just set. Slide the omelette out of the pan and on to a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Make a second omelette with the rest of the egg and slide this next to the first one so they slightly overlap and create ‘figure of eight’ omelette.
  3. Spoon the ricotta mixture in a line along the middle of both omelettes. Top with the potatoes, flaked fish and then the watercress.
  4. Turn on the grill to heat up and carefully roll up the omelette to make one big rolled omelette. Start from one of the longer ends and fold the omelette over the filling, then gently roll it over, tucking in the omelette as you go. Sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan and put under the grill for 3 minutes. Slice it up into 7.5 cm pieces and serve.
