French Omelet

 French Omelet
This cheesy, chock-full-of-flavor omelet is modeled after one Bernice Morris tasted and loved in a Marshfield, Missouri restaurant. “Mine is so hearty and rich-tasting that folks never guess it's low in fat,“ she confides.
2 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 20 min.


  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup cubed fully cooked lean ham
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese


  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, egg substitute, milk, salt and
  • pepper. Coat a 10-in. nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place
  • over medium heat. Add egg mixture to skillet (mixture should set
  • immediately at edges).
  • As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked
  • portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set, sprinkle the ham,
  • onion and green pepper on one side and sprinkle with cheese; fold
  • other side over filling. Slide omelet onto a plate.
  • Yield: 2 servings.
