Ingredients

Omelette
  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ teaspoon ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • 3 oz. 75 g mature shredded cheese or sliced
Filling
  • 2 2 mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 2 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • ½ oz. 15 g baby spinach
  • 1 oz. 30 g deli turkey
  • 1 teaspoon 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, cream and salt.
  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
