Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs into a batter with a fork.
  2. Add salt and spices.
  3. Melt butter in a frying pan and pour in the batter when the butter has melted.
  4. When the omelet begins to cook and get firm, but still has a little raw egg on top, sprinkle cheese, mushrooms and onion on top (optional).
  5. Using a spatula, ease around the edges of the omelet, then fold it over in half. When it starts to turn golden brown underneath, remove the pan from the heat and slide the omelet on to a plate.

Tip!

Serve the omelet with a crispy salad.

    What about light foods such as steamed fish with broccoli and spinach or carrot?
    Or salmon with yoghurt, lemon grass and lemon juice sauce? Plus steam veg?
  10. Ayo
    I also have this question, no one seem to mention carrot in all the vegetables. Is carrot good for LCHF PLEASE?

    I'm trying to figure how to convert the percentages to grams since I was suggested to have at least 94 grams of protein because of my height which is 5'4 and 20 grams or less on carbs. I used the converter. i.e. - 2 percent equals 20 grams but your recipe said 2g. I wanted to know how did you get that number? 23 percent in protein equals 230 grams. it is too much than 94. Help me here please!!

  12. Hi Laureen!

    One serving is 2 g carbs (equal 2% of the total Energy)
    Protein content is 23% of the total Energy

    That means the protein content is 23% / 2% * 2g = 23 g protein per serving

    DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A LOW CARB SPAGHETTI SAUCE, TOMATO SAUCE, OR PUREE?

    I agree that it would be a lot easier if the recipe simply listed the grams of fat, carbs, protein, etc. I didn't find the protein details hiding behind the icon, until I read Laureen's comment and went back looking for it.

    I have the hardest time making omelettes, even on a low heat they either burn or just won't cook, there's nothing quite as nasty as an undercooked omelet! I assume others have a higher success rate than I. ..any tips?
  16. Alison Craddock
    Don't cook omelettes on a low heat. The trick is to heat your pan with a little oil or butter until quite hot, then pour your eggs in quickly and slip it all over your pan. The hot oil will seal your eggs and stop them sticking. Add your filling after your eggs have sealed.

    Classico has a great tomato basil sauce that's low in carbs.

    Glad my doctor recommended low-carb. I have lost over 60 lbs in about 5 months.

    Is the mushroom cooked enough to eat? As per recipe, it seems that mushroom is wrapped inside the omelette, and is not cooked directly at all. Moreover, it would taste raw, I am guessing.

    How is the taste of mushrooms?

  20. Mary
    I cooked the onion and mushroom in the butter first then added it to the omelette with the cheese. There was still enough butter in the pan for the omelette and it was delicious.
  21. Els
    I was wandering the same, Nayan, about adding the mushrooms raw. I will make this, but cook onion and (oyster!) mushrooms first. Great advice, Mary!

    How can this diet work for someone who is a type 1 diabetic and a celiac. On a low calcium diet due to kidney problems?
