Spinazie omelet met geraspte kaas (spinach omelette with grated Dutch cheese)

Omelette is an extremely popular lunchtime dish in the Netherlands – not only because it’s ready in next to no time, but also because it can be enjoyed in an infinite number of delicious ways! This spinach omelette, made with fresh spinach and authentic Dutch cheese, is a classic example.

Serves 4 hungry people.


150 grams of fresh spinach (or ½ jar of Hak chopped spinach)
6 free-range eggs
125 ml of crème fraîche
2 tablespoons of olive oil
100 grams of grated Dutch cheese
Salt and pepper

Dutch omelette recipe


First rinse the spinach, remove any damaged leaves, drain and coarsely chop it. Now crack the eggs into a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper, and then thoroughly whisk. Next, add in the spinach and stir in the cream. Now heat a little olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and pour in 1 tablespoon of your egg mixture. Fry until the top of the omelette is dry, before turning over and cooking the other side. Repeat this process for all 4 omelettes. Finally, pop each of the omelettes onto a plate and top with a generous amount of grated Dutch cheese.
