Casual Omelet

Time: 25 mins


  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 (8 ounce) carton refrigerated fat-free liquid egg product or 1 (8 ounce) carton frozen fat-free liquid egg product, thawed or 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives or 1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley or 1 tablespoon fresh chervil
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 dash ground red pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese (1 ounce)
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • fresh fruit (optional)
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • 1 In a bowl combine sweet pepper, onion, vinegar, and black pepper. Set aside.
  • 2 Use an 8-inch nonstick skillet with flared sides or a crepe pan. Spray cold skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat.
  • 3 In a bowl beat together egg product or eggs, chives, salt, and ground red pepper with an electric mixer on medium speed or a rotary beater until frothy.
  • 4 Pour mixture into prepared skillet. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat without stirring for 4 to 5 minutes or until eggs begin to set. As eggs set, run a spatula around edge of skillet, lifting eggs so uncooked portion flows underneath. When eggs are set but still shiny, sprinkle with cheese. Top with 3/4 cup spinach and 2 tablespoons red pepper mixture. Fold one side of omelet partially over filling. Top with remaining 1/4 cup spinach and 1 tablespoon red pepper mixture. Reserve remaining red pepper mixture for another use. Transfer omelet to a plate. Serve with fresh fruit, if desired.
