Serve omelet

Turn the omelette skillfully once, continue cooking briefly, season again with salt and pepper, then arrange on warm plates.

Preparation tip: If the omelet breaks when you turn it, it’s not a broken leg.

Simply push the egg together again, finish cooking and serve.

The more “healthy” vegetables you add, the more unstable the omelet will be in terms of shape.




2. Calories and Nutritional Values

3. Select And Prepare Tomatoes For the Omelette

I like to use cocktail tomatoes myself. Depending on their origin, these are very tasty.

You can also prepare diced tomatoes from large tomatoes and use them for the omelette.

When it should go fast:

Cut the cocktail tomatoes into quarters, season the tomatoes with salt, pepper and some brown sugar, baste the tomatoes with some olive oil and let the tomatoes ripen in flavor for about 10 minutes.

Briefly sauté the prepared tomatoes in the pan, caramelizing them slightly – that’s pure, brilliant taste!

Preparation tip for the tomatoes from chef Thomas Sixt

Prepare large tomatoes as shown below.


Fry the diced tomatoes only briefly (sauté), you can cook halved or quartered cocktail tomatoes longer (see recipe and video)

Tomato cubes Prepare the tomato concasse
Quarter the peeled tomatoes and cut out the core. Cut the tomato flesh into strips or cubes.

When your tomatoes are ready, you can move on to the cheese and basil.

Alternatively, you can prepare your tomato omelette with the cocktail tomatoes as shown in the video.

This is even faster and tastes fantastically delicious!

4. Which Cheese Goes Well With the Tomatoes Omelette

The trick to making an omelette with cheese is to add the cheese right to the egg.

The cheese in the omelette then melts, the cheese on the outside browns deliciously and tastes wonderful.

In general, grated cheese melts faster, which is very important for the omelet preparation. Please grate the cheese as finely as possible.

I like to use Edam, Emmental, mountain cheese, Parmesan or Pecorino for my cheese omelet.

The cheese types Edam, Emmental, mountain cheese, Parmesan or Pecorino are ideal for the cheese omelet. Parmesan is more Italian!

Matching omelette cheeses Tip from chef Thomas Sixt
Grate parmesan
Finely grated parmesan is a recommendation for this dish.

5. Matching Herbs To the Omelette With Tomatoes

I use fresh basil in this recipe.

You can also use fresh parsley, chives, lovage (maggi herb) or thyme.

Frozen herbs or herbal mixtures are also suitable and save you additional time.

You can use dried or frozen herbs if you don’t have fresh ones on hand.

Use dried herbs sparingly, they develop a strong taste.

Fresh herbs, frozen herbs or dried herbs from the spice rack give your omelette a great taste!

  • Hi Thomas!

    Thats a great Egg-Dish 🙂

    It is Simple and delicious. I like the tomato and basil combo.

    Tastes great. Greetings Elon


    • Hi Elon,

      thank you for your nice feedback. that makes me happy.

      I hope you find enough basil for your preparation.

      Dried herbs are an alternative but not quite as refreshing as fresh.

      Wish you good luck!

      Best regards Thomas


  • Hi Chef Thomas!

    I like to make the omelet for dinner.

    It’s a good low carb dish and tastes amazingly delicious.

    Thank you so much for the nice tutorial and video.

    Love greetings Missy


    • Hello Missy,

      Low carb is a good idea for dinner.

      You remind me how delicious a diet dish can taste….

      Thank you and love greetings Thomas


  • Hi Thomas,

    I have made this egg dish several times now.

    🙂 With small tomatoes it goes quite fast.
    🙂 With the tomato cubes without skin it tastes even better to me.

    Thanks for the nice recipe and the idea with video!

    Greetings Sarah


    • Hello Sarah,

      The riper the tomatoes the better. There you can taste the sun in the egg dish.

      I like both variants. If it is to go fast small tomatoes, if I have time I peel the large tomatoes and use only the pulp.

      Maybe you would like to try my omelet with vegetables. That would be another great variation.

      Wishing you continued success.

      Greetings from Thomas
