A Good-For-You Breakfast Omelette

Now that breads and cereals are off the option list for the short-term, I'm moving to eggs to give my morning a good start. Here's a breakfast omelette you can make in a flash.  A non-stick pan and rubber spatula make the process very simple.


This omelette uses one whole egg and one egg white.  You can serve it as is, or fill it with your choice of add-ins.  I'm using veggies from yesterday's ratatouille and a tablespoon of shredded Parmesan cheese (day 2 of this omelette for me!). I'm going to make eating healthy as delicious and interesting as possible!!!  Here are photos of how it comes together, followed by the recipe:





HEALTHY OMELETTE

Tools:  Non-stick skillet and heat-proof rubber spatula

Non-stick vegetable spray.
1 egg
1 egg white
Choice of filling (cut up cooked vegetables, low-fat cheese, Canadian Bacon, etc. - up to you)
Seasoning to taste

Spritz pan with non-stick cooking spray and turn heat to medium.

In small bowl, whisk one egg and one egg white with a fork until well blended.  No need to add any liquid.

Pour beaten egg into pan and turn to spread the egg to cover bottom.  Leave it alone until the egg is opaque and cooked through.

Spread filling in center of left side of omelette.  Sprinkle any cheese.  With rubber spatula, pick up the right side of the omelette and fold over.  Turn heat to low and allow omelette to heat through and melt the cheese.

Slide out of pan onto serving plate.

And, a bonus -- here's a photo of Henry taken yesterday as we took an afternoon walk.  He insisted on carrying that snowball the entire time!

  6. Is it strange that I love scrambled eggs but am not an omelette person? Just wondering...

    1. Must be a texture thing, Di. Do you like crepes? This omelette is very thin, crepe-like, actually, and the fillings really are prominent. You might like it (!)

  7. An omelette is not something I make at home - it is usually the choice when going out to breakfast. You definitely show that it is something that is easily done.

    Henry must have worked up an appetite carrying his snowball on the walk! :-)
