Preheat your oven to 356°F (180°C).

Put a non-stick frying pan on medium heat without fat, and then put in a metal ring.

If you don't have metal ring, don't worry, use any pan you can find with non-stick bottom (otherwise put a sheet of greaseproof paper in the bottom) which can go both on the hob and in the oven.

Stage 11 - 5 min.

A possible variation, tomato souflée omelette: pour half the mixture into pan, then add a layer of cooked tomato slices (pan-fried beforehand in a little olive oil), and finally add the remaining mix. Then cook and serve as usual.

Remarks

The ideal utensil for this recipe is a non-stick frying pan with removable handle.

Serve with a herb salad on the side, as I think that something with a hint of acidity makes a good accompaniement.
