This classic is so easy to lighten up: we used lean ham, more egg whites than yolks, and opted for a small amount of a highly-flavoured cheese.


Egg whites

4 serving(s), large

Black pepper


Raw egg

2 large

Uncooked scallions

2 tbsp(s), minced

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

Hot pepper sauce

tsp(s), or to taste

Cooked lean ham

½ cup(s), finely diced

Shredded parmesan cheese

¼ cup(s), parmesan cheese, Parmigiano-Reggiano suggested

Olive oil cooking spray

1 spray(s)


  1. In a large bowl, beat together egg whites, eggs, scallions, salt, pepper and hot sauce.
  2. Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture and tilt skillet so bottom is completely covered with egg. Cook omelette until eggs are almost set, occasionally lifting egg in skillet to let uncooked egg to move to edges of skillet, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle ham and cheese over eggs. Using a spatula, ease up edges of omelette and gently fold in half; cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Yields 1/2 of omelette per serving.


Scramble the eggs for an even faster entrée.
