WAIT!!! Before you give an expression of disgust and say “gross” … hear me out. This omelet was surprisingly delicious.
Prep Time: 3-5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes
- Olive oil cooking spray
- Egg whites (6 large)- 1 cup
- Whole omega-3 eggs- 2
- Cinnamon- 1/8 tsp
- Splenda (1 package)- ¼ tsp (I swapped it out for pure sugar cane and only used 1/8 tsp)
- Low-fat cottage cheese- ½ cup
- Small peaches (diced)- 2
- Pecans (crushed)- ¼ cup
- Low-fat plain yogurt- ½ cup (used as a side garnish)
Preheat a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Lightly coat with spray. Whisk egg whites, eggs, cinnamon, and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Pour mixture into the pan. Cook for a couple of minutes until the top of the mixture begins to bubble. Cook for 1 minute until bottom is golden brown. Transfer omelet to a plate. Mix cottage cheese, peaches and pecans together and place half of mixture onto one side of omelet. Fold omelet over to cover contents. Use remaining mixture as a fruit salad side, and garnish omelet with yogurt and serve. Serves 1 large or 2 small.
This was delightful! I admit I was a little scared, because Eric couldn’t find peaches (not in season) so he brought apricots home. Also, I missed the part where the yogurt was to go on the side…so I mixed it in with the cottage cheese. I think at this point, Eric was starting to lose hope in my cooking skills. BUT since it was plain yogurt, it didn’t effect the dish one bit. I feel it only added character. The eggs had a subtle sweet scent and taste which reminded me of a pancake. When I took the first bite, I didn’t get any fruit so I had to wait until the next bite to get the full-effect of the deliciousness of this omelet. I was really impressed by it and surprised that I liked it so much. I will make this again, for sure!
It took no time at all to prepare which is a big plus for me, because I am not patient when it comes to making food!
My recommendation is; give this a try!!! If you think that putting fruit inside of eggs sounds gross, ask yourself this question: Have I ever had eggs with a fruit parfait for breakfast? If the answer is yes, this is no different. Give it a go. Try it for yourself so you can actually have an opinion and not a knee-slap reaction of what you know nothing about.
