Goat Cheese & Ham Omelet

As a busy working mom, my breakfast needs to require minimal prep. I often combine the egg mixture beforehand and refrigerate it 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
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.
  • Makes
    1 serving


  • 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


  • 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 1 side. Fold omelet in half; slide onto a plate. If desired, sprinkle with parsley.

    This was delicious. I didn't have any bell pepper so added some baby spinach when I added the goat cheese, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I will make this again!

    Very good. This is a healthy version of a Denver omelet. The goat cheese is so good on this. Will be making again.
