This is part of a new series I'm calling "Kelly is Poor and Can't Cook."
the original. I say "adapted" because it sounds fancy, but what it really means in "I added more cheese.")
Herbed Egg White Omelet
- 3 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon skim milk
- 1/2 tsp Penzey's Sunny Paris Seasoning
- 3/4 cup chopped fresh baby spinach
- 1 tablespoon shredded sharp cheddar
- 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
Combine eggs, milk, and herbs in a bowl. Spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray, then put it over low-medium heat. Add spinach. Once the spinach starts to wilt (this happens pretty quickly), pour the egg mixture over it. As the edges set, use a spatula to lift them and tip the pan to allow remaining liquid underneath. Honestly, I didn't need to do much of that. My eggs pretty much stayed where I poured them. When everything's set, sprinkle cheese on top and fold in half (or thirds, as I did).
All in all, I was pleased with my very first omelet. The recipe called for any type of mixed herbs, but I liked this with the Sunny Paris, which has shallots, chives, green peppercorns, dill weed, basil, tarragon, chervil, and bay leaf in it. If you have a specialty herb store anywhere near you, you should check and see if they carry Penzey's. Good stuff. I wish we'd had green onions in the house, or I would have added them to the omelet, too. Ah, well.
Overall, it was a light but filling meal.
end note: You might have noticed there are photos in this post, after I whined about not having a camera. Well that is because I stole my mother's for this. You might also notice that none of the photos are in color. That is because my mother's camera produces the worst color I have ever seen. On the up side, however, while rummaging for the upload cord, I found my camera's charger. Yay!
