Omelets might be the favorite of the food groups for me....it is it’s own category, right?
While I love eggs in general, these folded good-filled wonders of the breakfast world are my favorite, so much so that we have them sometimes for lunch and even dinner (or brinner depending on where you come from :)
For this omelet I kept it super simple, using just 5 ingredients!
Here's what you'll need:
1/2 cup egg whites
1 whole medium egg
1 Oz sharp cheddar cheese
2 slices of un-cured turkey bacon
2 cups spinach
(yes, that's it!)
Putting it all together:
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together your egg whites and egg (add in a pinch of salt and pepper if desired) then set aside.
Next, slice the two pieces of turkey bacon into halves, then dice into small pieces.
Place the turkey into a medium skillet on med-low heat, adding baby spinach on top.
Sauté together until the spinach is wilted, then transfer to a glass Corningware or bowl (this will be the omelet filling)
In the same skillet (wipe clean as needed) preheated to medium-low, lightly coat with olive oil and pour the egg mixture inside. When almost entirely cooked through, sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the entire surface of the egg, and top one half with the bacon and spinach.
Fold the other half of the omelet over and allow to cook another minute before transferring to a large plate.
This makes enough for two (it goes great with my Divine Banana Muffins!) but it’s also a good helping for one person and the macros are on point too!
