Want to make the best omelettes you’ve ever had?
There’s a secret ingredient you’re probably missing. It sounds crazy, but it will make your taste buds dance. Ready for it?
I know what you’re thinking. Actually, I don’t. But what you should be thinking is, “That’s genius.” Because it is.
As far as omelettes go, this is my favorite, ever. Bacon, spinach, garlic, cheese and eggs…ingredients I consume on a daily basis. With the exception of cheese, these all have varying nutritional benefits: iron (spinach), garlic (phyto-nutrients), protein (bacon and eggs). These are perfect on a leisurely Sunday morning, or on a weekday if you have enough time.
What are your favorite things to put in eggs?
|Prep time||5 minutes|
|Cook time||10 minutes|
|Total time||15 minutes|
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
- 2 pieces bacon (cooked)
- 1/4 cup swiss cheese (or whatever your favorite is)
- salt & freshly ground pepper
- 2 teaspoons olive oil or butter (or a combination of both)
|In a medium saute pan, wilt spinach by place in high heat. Add a few drops of water and cover with a lid to wilt quickly.|
|When spinach is cooked down, add olive oil and chopped garlic and cook for 2 minutes.|
|In a bowl, beat eggs, salt and pepper.|
|Lower the heat in your pan and pour egg in.|
|Once the edges of the eggs have set, crumble bacon onto one side of the omelette, then top with cheese.|
|Gently fold the non-topped half of the omelette on top of the cheese and bacon side, pressing down firmly with a spatula. Allow excess eggs to cook for a minute.|
|Flip onto other side and allow to cook for another minute, or until the omelette is no longer runny.|
|Serve hot. Great topped with avocado.|
