Egg white omelets ARE good!

Pin It My first attempt at an egg white omelet!

Egg-White Omelet With Vegetable-Cheddar Filling - 2 points total!  7 including WW toast with REAL margarine!

Cooking Time: 4 to 5 minutes
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

You Will Need
3 large egg whites
1 teaspoon water
2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill (optional)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup loosely packed, thinly sliced fresh spinach
1 plum tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons shredded low fatcheddar cheese (0.5 ounces)
Vegetable cooking spray

What to Do
1. Whisk egg whites, water, dill (if using), salt, and pepper together in a medium bowl until soft peaks form. Toss spinach, tomato, and cheddar together in a small bowl.

2. Lightly coat an omelet pan or small skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat 1 minute. Pour egg mixture into pan and cook until eggs begin to set on bottom.

3. Spread filling over half of omelet, leaving a 1/2-inch border and reserving 1 tablespoon mixture for garnish. Lift up omelet at edge nearest handle and fold in half, slightly off-center, so filling peeks out. Cook 2 minutes. Slide omelet onto a serving plate and garnish with reserved filling.

I also added one large mushroom, chopped small.  Afterall, what's spinach without mushrooms in an omelet!  And it added no points...I can't believe this BIG omelet was only 2 points!
