We made a 3 SmartPoints value Goat Cheese, Spinach, and Tomato Omelet with these ingredients:

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 large egg whites

  • 1/2 cup each chopped spinach and onion sautéed in 1 tsp oil

  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes with scallions

  • 1 Tbsp soft goat cheese

Other ideas to try
  • To test if your pan is hot enough, sprinkle a drop of water on pan—it should sizzle and evaporate immediately.

  • Loosen and lift cooked eggs from edge of pan to allow uncooked egg to run onto the hot surface to cook.

  • Add fresh herbs and soft, creamy fillings like goat cheese at end of cooking time so they just wilt or melt.

  • Go Mexican with fat-free salsa, peppers, low-fat cheddar. Go Greek with spinach, onions, feta. Go Italian with part-skim mozzarella, basil, tomato.
