  • 1/4 butternut, sliced
  • Butter
  • 3 large free-range eggs
  • Parmesan
  • handful mixed seeds (pumpkin, sesame, mustard, chilli)
  • Sage leaves
  • Cream cheese

Cook the butternut in a frying pan in a little butter. Remove from the heat when tender and caramelised.

In a separate pan, fry the seeds and sage in a knob of butter over a low heat. Remove from the heat when browned and fragrant. 3 Heat a little butter in the pan you used to cook the butternut.

Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk lightly.

Pour the eggs into the pan and cook over a medium heat. Once the egg is nearly cooked underneath, but still runny on top, place the butternut on one half of the omelette.

Top the butternut with a generous spoonful of cream cheese.

Gently fold the other half of the omelette over the top of the butternut and cream cheese. Transfer to a plate.

Sprinkle the seeds and sage over the omelette and top with shavings of parmesan. Serve hot.
