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:
Tools: Non-stick skillet and heat-proof rubber spatula
Non-stick vegetable spray.
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!
