    Very nice. Looks 'just' like in the photo! At first I thought there wasn't going to be enough egg but it was perfectly measured. Need a minimal amount of salt though. Very nice. Thank you!  -  05 Aug 2013


    What a lovely breakfast. I cut the fat by a huge amount and used four egg whites instead of two whole eggs (1 egg has approximately 5g of fat, vs 1 egg white which has only about 0.2g fat). I used frozen spinach which I cooked before adding to the egg mixture. I used fresh chopped onions instead of onion powder, because I had them on hand so why not? This is a very good basis for a spinach omelet, and you can easily tweak it to your own liking. A great way to incorporate veggies into your diet.  -  20 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good omelet that's god for you too! Instead of using onion powder I sauteed some onion and then added the spinach. I cooked that until it was wilted. I added a little milk to the eggs before adding them to the veggies and threw in a couple cherry tomatoes cut in half for a little color and flavor. I left out the nutmeg altogether. When it was all done I seasoned it with salt, pepper, and shredded Parmesan cheese. Great with whole grain toast!  -  27 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
