I don't cook a lot but the few things I do, I do well, like this omelette, which my family loves. It serves two, but you can easily double it.

  1. Clean and wash spinach, remove stalks. With a little water still clinging to the leaves, place in a non greased frying pan, set heat to medium and cover. When spinach is wilted, remove from the hob. Chop and discard any excess liquid. Set to one side.
  2. Whisk eggs with milk, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Heat butter in a large frying pan. Pour in eggs. Once they start to set and their surface is still moist, place spinach and cheese in the centre and fold both sides of the omelette over to cover the filling. Cover with a lid and cook till the top of omelette is set, and the cheese is melted.

  • 150 g spinach
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • salt
  • pepper
  • frying pan
  • fine grater

In a frying pan, sauté the spinach until wilted. Season to taste with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Set aside.


Spinach and Feta Cheese Omelet

In a medium nonstick skillet with low, sloping sides, combine the olive oil and the garlic. Cook over low heat until the garlic begins to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add the spinach cook 1 minute. Add the tomato and a pinch of salt and cook an additional 30 seconds. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and water, just until blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Place the skillet, wiped clean, over medium heat 2 minutes. Add the butter, swirling it to coat the pan. When the butter stops sizzling, pour the egg mixture into the pan. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the bottom is set, about 10 seconds. Using a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon, pull the set eggs at the edges of the pan toward the center, allowing the unset eggs to run from the center to the sides. (Adjust the heat if necessary to prevent browning.) Continue to cook until a thin layer of unset egg is visible on top. The total cooking time should be less than 2 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat spoon the spinach mixture across the middle third of the omelet sprinkle with the feta and dill. Using a spatula, fold the third of the omelet nearest the handle over the center third with the filling. Holding the handle, tilt the pan so that the omelet rolls out of it and onto a plate, seam side down.


Spinach Omelette

This spinach omelette is the ideal breakfast for an active day! Be it a busy weekday, or an energetic weekend, this easy-to-cook breakfast will help you stay productive during the first half of the day.

Who doesn’t like eggs? I like cooking with eggs, and I love eating them! Fried, boiled, scrambled, omelettes, sunny side up, down, you name it, I’ll eat it!

Not many of us will debate the importance of starting the day with a good breakfast. A balanced breakfast not just provides the fuel to start your day, but also helps you get going on a happy note.

Here is the thing about this spinach omelette. It’s amazingly simple, easy-to-cook, healthy, and with a great balance of flavours. It’s delicious!

What goes into this omelette that makes it a balanced breakfast? We have the healthy proteins from eggs. Make it organic, and you get more omega-3 fatty acids which is good for your heart. I used a handful of spinach leaves from our kitchen garden. It’s again organic, and an anti-oxidant rich, nutritious super food, which is good for your hair, skin, and bones. Parmesan cheese is protein, and a great source of calcium. We use olive oil which is all vitamins and other nutrients good for your skin. Together these ingredients bring in a great balance of flavours as well.

Spinach Omelette with Parmesan Cheese – a healthy breakfast

Before we get cooking, a few points for making a good omelette

Don’t whisk the eggs too much. Just beat them enough that you don’t see any strands. Adding a little milk will help in making the omelette fluffy. After you pour the batter on the hot skillet lined with olive oil, tilt and swirl the skillet to get the mix evenly distributed on the cooking surface. Using a spatula, lift off the edges to get the unset mix to flow to the bottom of the skillet. Add spinach and cheese when the omelette starts to get set in the center. This will ensure that they get enough time on the skillet, and the cheese to disappear into the goodness of eggs and spinach.

If you like your omelette to be slightly crispy and brown, leave it on the skillet for an extra few seconds. Once you are happy with the consistency, bring the plate close to the skillet, and tilt it so that the omelette can slide on to the plate. I like to season my omelettes with a sprinkle of crushed, dry red chillies. Serve with a slice of toasted bread, some pan fried tomatoes, and a hot beverage of your choice!

This two egg omelette will help you stay full and satisfied for a longer time. That means not getting hunger pangs before lunch, and thereby not resorting to a heavy meal. It’s all in good health!


Directions

Heat ½ teaspoon of oil or butter in on-skillet in medium heat until hot.

Add shallots or red onion and garlic, sauté 2 minutes.

Stir in mushrooms, cook and stir often for about 10 minutes, until mushrooms has released most of the juice.

Stir in spinach, cook until wilted, about 2 minutes.

Wipe out the skillet, heat the remaining ½ teaspoon of oil in medium-high heat until hot.

Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook over medium flame.

Lift edges of the skillet to allow raw egg mixture to flow underneath and cook.

When the egg is about half set, spread mushroom-spinach mixture evenly and sprinkle cheese on top.


Cream Cheese Spinach Omelette

In a bowl, mix together cream cheese and spinach. In a separate bowl, beat 2 eggs. Brush sesame seed oil on the bottom of a frying pan. Preheat pan on medium heat, pour in eggs.

Cook until able to flip egg. Spread cream cheese mixture onto cooked side of egg. Wait 30 seconds to ensure the other side of the egg is cooked, fold in half, wait 1 minute to melt cream cheese mixture. Remove from heat, serve.


Toasted sesame seed oil is VERY strong tasting. Be sure not to use any more than necessary or it will overpower the taste of the omelette. Just brushing it on the bottom of the pan will suffice. This is a great low carb breakfast!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank kimber177 for this recipe.

I'm lazy. I just put the spinach on the omelet and topped it with the cream cheese. I like my eggs cooked slightly brown, so the spinach gets warmed through. I also like some chopped parsley mixed in with my eggs.

It's best if you wilt the spinach just a little first to make it more tender. Just put it in a covered sauce pan on medium heat with just a Tablespoon or two of water. Pat the spinach dry before adding to the omelet. It's really good.

I thought it was very good and a nice variation. Add a little water to your eggs when beating for a light and fluffy omelet. I salt and peppered mine. I calculated it at 4 carbs: .39 per egg, 1.5 for cream cheese and 1.7 for spinach.

Not trying to offend anyone, but there is nothing healthy about using a microwave.

I am very disappointed that you do not present the net carbs. I would never use a recipe that does not give the net carb total.
