French Omelet Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 1. 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).
  • 2. 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.
