For these omelettes for two, we give a classic, no-fuss recipe that's delicious on its own with just eggs and seasonings, and provide you with our best techniques to cook and assemble them. You can fill them with any variety of cooked vegetables, meats, or poultry. We suggest mushrooms, spinach, ham, and/or Swiss cheese. You'll have breakfast ready for you and that special someone in your life in under 10 minutes. For an even healthier version, substitute 1 cup of fat-free egg substitute for the eggs and egg whites.



2 large egg(s)

Egg white(s)

3 large


1 Tbsp

Table salt

¼ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

Olive oil

½ tsp


  1. Beat together the eggs, egg whites, water, salt, and pepper in medium bowl until slightly frothy.
  2. Heat 1⁄4 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the egg mixture and cook, occasionally lifting the edges of the egg and tilting the pan to allow the uncooked mixture to flow underneath, 2 minutes. When almost set, loosen edges of the omelette with a spatula and fold into a half-moon shape. Reduce heat to low and cook 1 minute more, or until set. Repeat with the remaining egg mixture. Yields 1 omelette per serving.


Fat-free omelettes were a staple in the old days of Weight Watchers. The one caveat was that eggs could only be eaten at breakfast or lunch. Break the rules deliciously with this foolproof omelette technique; it makes a great impromptu supper.
