Greek omelet, that is! Ooooooooh, I love it when I feel clever (even though I'm sure on a scale of 1-to-10 of "lameness", that was about a 14).
Listen, it happens.
I'm just going to cut to the chase. I came home from the gym last night with no idea of what to fix for dinner. I started doing dishes, and there it was. In our cookbook stand on the counter, I had left the Newlywed Cookbook that Matt gave me for our 1-year anniversary last year, open to a page with a recipe for Greek omelet.
Sidenote: Matt did so good! The first anniversary is "paper" themed, so he got us the cookbook and a "recipe journal". How sweet!? I just LOVE him!
Back on track... I didn't have some of the ingredients (like black olives which, I think we should always have in our house), so I improvised. No surprise there, right?
What you'll need:
~2 Spears fresh asparagus, sliced lengthwise and cut into 1-inch diagonal pieces
~1/4 C. crumbled feta cheese
~1 C. cherry tomatoes (or 1 whole large tomato, quartered and sliced into small wedges, like I did), sliced in half
~3 Green onions, sliced
~1/4 Red onion, chopped/sliced
~4 Oz. black or Kalamatta olives, sliced (we did not have these and I could kick myself!)
~Lg. pinch of salt
~1 Tsp black pepper
~1 Tsp fresh or dried parsley (I used dried...fresh would be delightful, though!)
~6 Whole Eggs + 1/4 C. liquid egg whites (I added this for extra protein), mixed with the salt
What to do:
~Preheat oven to 400*
~Place veggies, cheese, black pepper & parsley in single layer in a well greased pie plate or large cast iron skillet (we used the skillet...would highly recommend!)
~Pour egg/egg white mixture with salt over the veggies
~Bake for 20 mins, or until puffed and golden and cooked through
Serve with Canadian, low sodium/no sugar added or turkey bacon and top omelet with avocado slices if you like!
It's like a sophisticated breakfast dinner. It's like...ridiculous.
I thought maybe Matt would be skeptical but he loved it!
Super healthy. And, I didn't feel bad about cooking it while watching Biggest Loser!
Hope you enjoy!
