This satisfying entrée for one is good for any meal, from breakfast to dinner. Serve with fruit salad.
2/3 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
1/2 cup chopped zucchini
3 tablespoons chopped green onions
1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 large egg whites
1 large egg
2 tablespoons shredded smoked Gouda cheese
How to Make It
Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add corn, zucchini, onions, and 1/8 teaspoon salt to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from heat.
Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine 1/8 teaspoon salt, water, pepper, egg whites, and egg, stirring well with a whisk. Coat pan with cooking spray. Pour egg mixture into pan; cook until edges begin to set (about 2 minutes). Gently lift the edges of omelet with a spatula, tilting pan to allow uncooked egg mixture to come in contact with pan. Spoon corn mixture onto half of omelet; sprinkle corn mixture with cheese. Loosen omelet with a spatula, and fold in half over corn mixture. Cook 2 minutes or until the cheese melts. Carefully slide omelet onto a plate.

I love this omelet. It's big enough to share, so I often make only one for my husband and myself. I never have Gouda on hand, so I use mozzarella cheese instead. Definitely a favorite dish of mine, I passed it on to my sister at her bridal shower.
So good! I made this into a frittata instead of an omelet, which turned out great. Definitely enough food to share, especially if you serve with fruit salad or an English muffin. I also used white onion instead of green and smoked cheddar instead of Gouda (only b/c that's all I had on hand). Will make again with the Gouda. Great way to use up extra veggies!
