Veggie Omelet with Goat Cheese
My family eats a lot of vegetables so I'll set some aside at dinner to use in an omelet the next day. This cuts prep time in half! I like the versatility of this recipe because it can be made with whatever veggies and cheeses you have. —Lynne Keast, Monte Sereno, California

- In a small bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, mushrooms and green pepper; cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until tender.
- Add spinach, green onions and garlic; cook and stir 1-2 minutes longer or until spinach is wilted and garlic is tender. Transfer vegetable mixture to a small bowl. In same pan, heat remaining oil. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edge.
