I told myself I would cook thirty new meals in my thirties. So as I was thinking through all the things I’ve never made (there are a lot), I realized that I’ve never made an egg white omelet. NEVER. The closest I’ve come is making scrambled egss using equal parts egg whites and whole eggs. I wouldn’t have even thought to make this omelet had I not eaten one a few days in a row once.
What happened was…there’s a Pax in my building. I was feeling lazy a few weeks ago and (1) wasn’t bringing my breakfast from home, and (2) was too cold to go outside and find a cheaper alternative than Pax. So I ordered an egg white omelet for breakfast (because, healthy). It was actually pretty good! So I ordered one the next day and the day after. And after looking at my bank account I realized that I could easily make myself this same exact omelet at home for 1/3 of what I’d spent that week (oh, and it would probably taste better too).
So one morning I made myself an egg white omelet with feta, spinach and tomato with some turkey bacon (my favorite thing) on the side. It’s an easy way to eat something other than scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese on a Sunday morning (which is still the best way to eat eggs, but Quentin says it’s good to try new things…)
Egg White Omelet Recipe with
Feta, Spinach and Tomato
This egg white omelet recipe is extremely easy to make, even with all the “extra” ingredients. First, chop up some onion and garlic. Heat some butter in a large saucepan (nonstick is easiest to work with) and once that’s melted, add the chopped onion and garlic to the pan. Saute the onion and garlic for a few minutes and then add some chopped spinach and mushrooms. You’ll want that all to cook down until the spinach has wilted.
Now you can add your egg whites to the pan. At this point I also like to add a bit of salt and black pepper. Next add chopped tomatoes and some feta cheese. Let everything cook until the pan side of the omelet is firm enough for you to flip the omelet in half. Then flip the omelet on the other side and let it cook until the middle of the omelet has set.
Hey, you just made a world-class omelet. Look at you! You can stop here, or you can add a side of your favorite turkey bacon…and who wouldn’t want to do that?
