50 gm butter, coarsely chopped 2 leeks, thinly sliced 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 2 tsp thyme 100 ml dry white wine Finely grated rind of 1 lemon 120 gm crème fraîche 4 eggs, separated 30 gm plain flour 2 tbsp coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley 100 gm chèvre To serve: toasted baguette slices

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat grill to high heat. Heat 30gm butter in a frying pan over medium heat, add leek, garlic and thyme and sauté until tender (4-5 minutes).

Add crème fraîche, yolks, flour and parsley, crumble in half the chèvre, season to taste and stir to combine.

  • Heat remaining butter in a 25cm-diameter frying pan over medium heat until foaming, add egg mixture, shaking pan gently to level. Cook until base is golden (1-2 minutes), scatter remaining leek mixture and chèvre over one half of the omelette, then grill until light golden (1-2 minutes). Carefully slide onto a warm serving plate, folding in half as you go. Serve hot with toasted baguette slices.
