Slightly shake the pan to make sure that the eggs reach the bottom. Allow two minutes for the omelette to form at the bottom. Using another pan or a large plate, cover the frying pan and turn the contents upside down. Place the pan back on the hob for another two minutes to allow the other side of the frittata to cook through. Allow 1 or 2 more minutes each side if you do not like your eggs runny.

Et voila!
