Add extra nutrients to your breakfast by stirring in chopped fresh spinach, chopped tomato and shredded cheese into your protein-packed omelet.
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup coarsely chopped spinach
1/3 cup chopped tomatoes
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup (1 1/2 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
1/8 teaspoon pepper
How to Make It
Blend and Pour. Process eggs and 2 Tbsp. water in a blender until blended. Melt butter in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat; add spinach and tomatoes, and saut´´ 1 minute or until spinach is wilted. Add salt and egg mixture to skillet.
Lift and Tilt. As egg mixture starts to cook, gently lift edges of omelet with a spatula, and tilt pan so uncooked egg mixture flows underneath, cooking until almost set (about 1 minute). Cover skillet, and cook 1 minute.
Fold and Serve. Sprinkle omelet with cheese and pepper. Fold omelet in half, allowing cheese to melt. Slide cooked omelet onto a serving plate, and season with salt to taste. Serve with buttered toast and fresh fruit.
What a delicious veggie omelet. I loved how the tomatoes added a burst of flavor with every bite. I was even more impressed by the fact that the omelet really took less than 14 minutes to make.

How is this Diabetic Friendly? You start with 2 whole eggs instead of 2 eggs whites, you're sauting in 1 tbsp of butter instead of unsalted butter, you also add swiss cheese instead of adding any low sodium cheese. You add an 1/8 tsp of salt, is that table, sea or kosher. Kosher has less sodium. I will truly rework this recipe so that it can be Low Sodium/Diabetic Friendly.
This was good but I could only eat half as it was quite filling. I did add a little more cheese (.7) and threw in some chopped leeks leftover from the night before. I sauteed the veggies then removed them to a bowl. I put the eggs into the pan and let them set a little before sprinkling the veggies over the top. They cooked for a while; then I put them under the broiler to set before adding cheese. Broiled again until the cheese was melted. I halved, folded and served.
