BABY SPINACH OMELETTE


Great way to sneak something healthy into a breakfast! I really didn't taste the spinach nor did it have an overly crunchy texture - just a bit wee bit of spicy cheese flavor and brings a lively blend of yellow and green to the breakfast table.
It is based on the following recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Baby-Spinach-Omelet/Detail.aspx This is for 1-2 servings
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 cup torn baby spinach leaves
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Fork
  • Frying pan
  • Spatula
Beat the eggs in a bowl with a fork.

Add in the torn baby spinach leaves, parmesan cheese, onion powder, nutmeg, salt and pepper.
Mix together until well blended. Spray the frying pan generously with the non-stick cooking spray, then pour mixture into the frying pan and cook on medium heat for 3 minutes.

Use the spatula to flip the omelet over and cook the other side 2-3 minutes (mine was done at this point). If it is still too runny for you, reduce heat to low and continue cooking 2-3 minutes, or until it is done to what you like.
