As a busy working mom, my breakfast needs to require minimal prep. I often combine the egg mixture beforehand and refrigerate overnight. Then all I have to do in the morning is heat up my skillet. My favorite part is the goat cheese filling, which gets nice and creamy from the heat of the omelet. —Lynne Dieterle, Rochester Hills, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 slice deli ham, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
  • Minced fresh parsley, optional

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk egg whites, water and pepper until blended; stir in ham, green pepper and onion. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Pour in egg white mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edges. As egg whites set, push cooked portions toward the center, letting uncooked egg flow underneath.
When no liquid egg remains, sprinkle goat cheese on one side. Fold omelet in half; slide onto a plate. If desired, sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 1 serving.
