you know those nights when you didn't plan on making dinner and you're not really in the mood to cook, but you also want to make a better choice than eating out? on nights like that, our go to meal is a denver-ish omelette. denver-ish, because i'm not really sure what the ingredients have to be for an omelette to be considered denver, and because this is generally cooked as an uplanned meal, i just use what we have on hand. sometimes we have green pepper. sometimes we have jalapeno. sometimes we have ham. sometimes we miraculously have all 3 at the same time. and we always have cheese and onion. and of course we always eggs. the first time i ever made an omelette, i watched a couple of youtube videos on how to make the perfect omelette. it's all about tipping the pan and lifting the cooked part of the egg up and letting the uncooked egg run underneath so that it can cook. if that doens't make sense, jump on over to youtube.
3 egg whites
1 whole egg
splash of milk
veggies and meats of your choice, chopped
sautee veggies in a small skillet until tender. (for this omelette, i used 1/2 a green pepper and 1/2 an onion). in a small bowl, whisk together eggs and milk until frothy. pour the egg mixture in a medium pan sprayed with cooking spray. as the omelette cooks, push the cooked edges into the middle, and tilt the pan so the uncooked egg runs underneath. repeat until the egg is cooked thru. add cheese to entire omelette, then place veggies and meats on 1/2. fold over and serve.
it never looks that appetizing, but as a quick and healthy meal, it tastes amazing!
