Omelette. When clearly it should have been 3.

Three is much better. I used two to make an omelette for 10mo DS.

my mum would think 2 eggs was extravagant. perhaps that is why we never had omelette. she was rationed in the war though, so has an excuse.

I always use 2, I find three abit too much.

I only ever use two. I probably overfill them to balance it out though smile

3, not worth the hassle of making an omlette if just 2, same with scrambled eggs, if it's a meal then it's a meal and make something that won't leave you wondering why you bothered as you are still hungry.

Depends how big and hungry you are. I'm small, so I never want more than 2 eggs at a time (certainly not by the time I've added ham, cheese or whatever). I'd usually use 3 for DH.

I made a very extravagant omelette tonight for 3 of us - huge frying pan, onions, mushrooms, bacon, chorizo,mushrooms, cubed boiled potatoes, piccolo tomatoes, red peppers, 6 eggs and shit loads of mature cheddar cheese browned on top - bloody yummy!
