Recipe Title: Low Cal Casual Omelet

Contributed by: TwinLakesChef

Note from the Diva
In the time it takes for your morning stretch, you can make a pretty
omelet.

List of Ingredients

2/3 cup finely chopped red sweet pepper

2 tablespoons finely chopped onion

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Nonstick cooking spray

8 ounces refrigerated or frozen egg
product, thawed, or 4 eggs

1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives, Italian
parsley or chervil

Dash salt

Dash ground red pepper

1/4 cup shredded, reduced-fat sharp cheddar
cheese (1 ounce)

1 cup spinach leaves

Fresh fruit (optional)

Preparation
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.
