There are dishes that are not only real meal-savers, but also manage to win over the palate from the very first bite. Dishes full of flavour, made from simple ingredients reminiscent of old recipes and our Rolled omelette, obviously gluten-free in this is unbeatable!

Here you will find the recipe that I love to make when the fridge is almost down to the bone, but remember that you can put whatever ingredients you have on hand, seasonal vegetables and herbs, in the Omelette Filling: it will never disappoint. And if you want to follow how to make it step by step, prepare it by watching the video recipe.

Preparation of the egg mixture
