The Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On star has shared a cooking tutorial with his Instagram fans that reveals how he makes his favourite "silky" omelette – and it only takes 45 seconds.

"This is something my kids love, something I like to have for breakfast, brunch, lunch, midnight munchies…" Jamie explained in the video. 

After whisking two eggs, pouring the mixture into a hot saucepan and adding grated cheddar cheese, he then simply rolled the finished product onto a piece of toast. And voila, breakfast is served!

Jamie continued: "I want to show you that we've created the most incredible texture like a croissant or puff pastry." He even described it as "potentially the most amazing omelette in the world", not that we needed any more persuading to try it out ourselves after he showed off the melted cheese oozing out of the middle.
