Ingredients

Omelet
  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp butter or coconut oil
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • 3 oz. 75 g (150 ml) mature shredded cheese or sliced
Filling
  • 2 2 mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 2 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • ½ oz. 15 g baby spinach
  • 1 oz. 30 g deli turkey
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp dried oregano

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, cream and salt and pepper.
  2. Heat up a dollop of butter in a non-stick frying pan. Spread out the cheese evenly in the pan, so it covers the entire bottom. Fry on medium heat until bubbly.
  3. Carefully pour the egg mixture over the cheese and lower the heat. Cook for a few minutes without stirring.
  4. Fill one half with mushrooms, tomatoes, baby spinach, cream cheese, turkey and oregano. Fry for a few minutes more.
  5. When the egg mixture starts to set (it can still be quite loose on top, but not too loose), turn the empty half over the topping side, forming a crescent. Fry for a few more minutes and enjoy!

Tip!

There are an infinite number of ways to vary the filling, here are a few suggestions:

  • mozzarella and pesto
  • taco mince and avocado
  • smoked salmon, cream cheese and baby spinach
  • tuna, mayonnaise and scallions

    Love the Crust! The Fried Cheese gives this omelette extra crunch and great flavor - I used Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese and didn't use the Oregano - Very Good! Definitely making this again!! :)

    So so good. It's about to be grocery day so all I had were the spices and some spinach/arugula to use for the filling, but even just like this it's my new favorite breakfast.
    The cheese crust reminds me of saganaki- add a squeeze of lemon juice and a tiny sprinkle of salt on top at the end for an even more amazing flavor boost.

    This omelette is the BEST. I cannot cook one any other way. Even without a filling it is so, so good. Thank you. :)

    Just made this for breakfast, it was excellent and so easy to make. My husband said the outer crispy cheese put it over the top! Definitely a keeper!

    Putting the cheese in first is absolutely inspired. I'll never go back.

    My first Keto friendly meal and I'm sold!! This was the cheesiest, most moist delicious omelette I have ever had.
    Next time I make it I think I will leave out the cream cheese but otherwise BEAUTIFUL!

    This is my first meal of Keto, and it was delicious. I can't believe I get to eat like this.

    Just made this, with some modifications for what I had on hand. So glad I had a bit of cream cheese on hand, loved that! I had a variety of hard cheeses, mushrooms, red and yellow peppers already sliced from another meal, and ham. Awesome, loved the crispy slightly salty crust on the omelet!
