Omelets are one of my favorite meals because they are so delicious and high in protein. When I have an omelet for breakfast, it keeps me full through the day.
- 3 eggs & 3 egg whites (or substitute)
- 2 oz. meat- ham or turkey bacon
- 1/2 c. shredded low-fat cheese (cheddar, Swiss, soy, feta, etc.)
- 4 scallions, chopped (or onions)
- 1/4 red pepper, chopped
- 1/2 zucchini, chopped
1). Spray an 8″-10″ nonstick frying pan with olive oil and heat on medium.
2). Whisk the eggs, water, and scallions and pour into hot skillet.
3). Cook for about 3 min. or until the eggs are starting to set on bottom; using a thin spatula, carefully lift the edges and allow the uncooked mixture to run underneath.
4). Spread the cheese over half of the omelet. Cover and cook for 2 min. or until just set.
5). Top the cheese side of the omelet with the avocado and any meat you may be using, then fold the omelet in half.
6). Cover and let sit for several minutes before cutting in half and serving.
