  1. Whisk together in a small bowl eggs and cream until smooth. Add ham, chopped chive and season with freshly ground black pepper and salt.
  2. Set a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When pan has heated, add butter and rapeseed oil.
  3. Pour the egg mixture and gently shake the pan to cover the entire surface. Cook for around 20 seconds or until it begins to set. Add cheddar cheese and start rolling in the middle of the pan. Shake the pan again to redistribute the uncooked egg.

  5. Transfer omelette to the plate and garnish with cherry tomatoes and fresh parsley leaves.
