OK…it’s official, I have started a diet (it’s not a new years resolution) and I am ready for my mind and body to take a different path…I will still be posting the same type of recipes, but I’ll also be adding more healthy alternatives as well! I started WW and I am loving it so far and this is one of the recipes that I had of my own and we fell in love with it….I don’t normally eat breakfast, but I chose to make omelets today and with egg beaters! It actually tasted amazing! It has a little spice due to the onions and the southwest flavor of egg beaters that were used but I highly recommend using veggies to keep it healthy. Here’s the recipe, I sure hope you like it!
Makes: 1 omelet
Cook Time: 8 minutes or so
Here’s what you’ll need:
3/4 cup egg beaters
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp olive oil or non-stick cooking spray
1/4 medium onion
1/4 bell pepper
2 Tbsp shredded cheese
In a large non-stick skillet, spray bottom of pan with non-stick cooking spray or drizzle olive oil in bottom of pan, turn heat to medium. Once the oil is heated, pour in egg mixture and tilt pan to cover entire bottom of the pan.
Cook without stirring until bottom of the eggs are beginning to set, about 30 seconds….
Edges of the eggs should be easy to remove from the sides of the skillet….
Sprinkle veggies and cheese across the eggs evenly….
Cook eggs moving skillet back and forth over heat until cooked through 3-4 minutes. Lift one side and then proceed to fold over….
Fold in half to serve…
Garnish with shredded cheese, parsley, tomaotes, etc…if desired.
