I love eggs.

I’m not the type of person who eats the same thing everyday, or, for that matter, eat the same thing each week.  I like diversity and I get bored easily. Having said that, I’ve eaten this omelette everyday for the past 7 days, so I figure I’d blog it. I started working from home in January, and I’ve consequently gained 15 lbs. I started watching what I eat 9 days ago, and this omelette fills me up, is fast and easy to make, and is versatile.


1 large egg

3 large egg whites (1/4 cup liquid egg whites)

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp olive oil

3 cup spinach



1. Mix egg, egg whites and salt in a medium-sized bowl.

2. Heat non-stick pan with oil on high until the oil is hot.

3. Turn heat down to medium and add eggs all at once

4. Spread spinach over the egg mixture. (Yes, put the spinach in a layer over the uncooked eggs.)

5. Fold 1/4th of the eggs gently over the spinach, then fold your omelette again over 1/4. Gently pull the omelette towards the middle of the pan and fold again.  Press out the uncooked eggs. This will give you some extra room for another fold, and squish the spinach so it’s nice and snug between the layers of egg. Fold one or two more times until can’t anymore!



This is not my picture. I took it from http://www.busogsarap.com/2011/03/plain-rolled-omelette.html
I forgot to take the folding picture this morning. I’ll post one tomorrow 🙂

The above picture is of a plain omelette. Your folds won’t be as thin. The important step is to get the first fold done,


I know this is pretty simple, but when my husband saw me making my omelette he said something like, “folding that omelette takes a bit of skill doesn’t it?” I didn’t realize it, but yeah, it kinda takes some practice. So, I thought I’d post it.

MMM, mmm, good.
