This was delicious and super healthy too! We really loved the flavor combinations. I followed the directions exactly for the first omelet and then I made another omelet and the second time I folded the veggie mixture into the middle. It stayed together better. This was the perfect ,healthy low-carb, yummy way to start the day off right! Read More

I added sliced new potatoes and kohlrabi greens instead of spinach, turned out really delicious! Even my pickiest kid enjoyed it. A trick I learned long ago was to use a large cast iron skillet. After eggs are added, turn heat to low until about halfway cooked through. Put skillet under broiler for ~4-5 mins to cook the top. This prevents total destruction while attempting to flip omelet, and it ends up looking picture perfect. Read More

The recipe was delicious I'm actually surprised I had everything for it in my fridge and pantry. I only gave 4 stars because there are way too many vegetables to make this an omelet. It completely falls apart and ends up a scramble. Still good though. I'd probably use this many veggies for a 1-whole-egg-and-3-egg-white-omelet for myself AND a bigger omelet for the hubby. Or of course it's always nice to prep veggies at the beginning of the week so they're ready when you want 'em! Read More

Great flavor! Like other reviewers I probably went too heavy on the veggies too..so I didn't end up with a beautiful omelet but it was very tasty and there is nothing wrong with getting more veg whenever you can! Thanks for the keeper recipe. Read More

Changed up the method a bit. Cooked the mushroom/pepper/green onion mixture first. Removed from pan & added egg. Then added veggies along with spinach to the egg. Light & easy breakfast. Read More
