Puffy Apple Omelet Recipe

Meet the Cook: With all the eggs our chickens produce, I could make this omelet every day! I guess I consider it to be mostly a festive dish, but you could fix it anytime...including for a light supper. Growing up in a big family - seven children - of big eaters, I started cooking early. Now, I have a husband who likes to eat! We're the parents of one son, 8, and two daughters, 6 and 4. -Melissa Davenport, Campbell, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 3 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large apple, peeled if desired and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Mix flour, baking powder and, if desired, salt. In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolks, milk and lemon juice; stir into flour mixture.
  • 2. In another bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until stiff peaks form. Fold into flour mixture.
  • 3. Pour into a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray. Arrange apple slices over top. Mix sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apple.
  • 4. Bake, uncovered, until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 18-20 minutes. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 servings.

Recipe Note

Health Tip: Most puff pancakes are pretty lean, but satisfying even as breakfast for dinner. The filling often makes them unhealthy, but this recipe uses just a touch of sugar for sweetness.

"This was really good and really fluffed up in the oven. It was light but filling and I enjoyed the tartness of the apples. Next time, I'll try cooking the apples in the cinnamon and sugar to get them a little softer, before putting them in the oven."

"Outstanding. I think it should be called a puffy pancake though. My husband won't eat eggs, and he never knew!

I used whole wheat pastry flour and Stevia and it was fabulous. Light and guilt free!"
