Are you a breakfast person? If so, you’ll love this healthy and delicious spinach omelette. This omelette is the perfect way to start the day with plenty of protein and a good dose of veggies. Give it a try!
How do I keep the spinach omelette from falling apart?
A tip to make sure that your omelette stays together when you flip it is to make sure you let it cook through thoroughly before you attempt to flip it. Otherwise, it will completely fall apart. Another tip to make sure that your omelette turns out well is to make sure you have plenty of oil in the pan. If you have too little oil, then the egg with begin to stick to the pan. This will create such a big mess and when you try to flip it, will tear!
What should I serve with this spinach omelette?
One great thing about an omelette is that you can get all of your meal in one! Because of the egg, this dish has some good protein and because of the peppers, spinach, and onion, you can get some veggies too! If you are wanted some extra protein in your dish, you could choose to serve this omelette on the side as something else. Or, you could add some of your leftover meat into this dish to make it even more protein-packed.
What are some alternative veggies that I can use in this omelette?
There are lots of veggies that you can put in an omelette! For this recipe, I used spinach, peppers, and onions but there are so many options for what you can put it. Like I mentioned earlier, you can toss any leftovers you have into an omelette. For example, mushrooms are SO delicious in an omelette and if you have them leftover, then it is the perfect thing to add.
Why put heavy whipping cream in an omelette?
Adding heavy whipping cream to my omelette recipe is one of my secrets to getting the fluffiest and most delicious results. Besides just making the omelette fluffier, the cream also adds some more dynamic flavors and some healthy fats. While this seems like a small step in the recipe, it is definitely an important one. If you have not tried this before, then give it a try!
Are frozen or fresh veggies better in an omelette?
Personally, I use frozen spinach because I always have it on hand, but whatever you have in your fridge is what works best! An omelette is basically just a mix of whatever you haven’t eaten in your fridge yet; therefore, you should use whatever you have on hand. Since they have the same nutrients and ultimately the same flavor once cooked into the omelette, do whatever you choose!
Is spinach really good for you?
Spinach is SO good for you. It is an incredible way to get a lot of your good nutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, iron, folate, and potassium. Spinach also has a pretty good amount of fiber, which is so important for us to get. As far as vegetables go, this is one that you’re not going to want to leave out of your omelette.
What seasonings should I put in this spinach omelette?
I use one of my favorite seasonings, Everything But The Bagel seasoning for this omelette. This makes the dish so delicious and is the perfect addition to the eggs and the vegetables. You can use whatever seasoning you like, but I highly recommend giving this seasoning blend a try! Besides the Everything But The Bagel seasoning, I also use salt and pepper in this omelette as well.
