Canadian Bacon and Swiss Omelet Recipe
Yield: 1 serving
Nutrition per serving: 180 calories, 8 g fat, 24 g protein, 2 g total carb, 0 g fiber
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes
• 1 egg
• 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
• 2 slices Canadian bacon, diced
• 2 Tbsp reduced-fat Swiss cheese, grated
1. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork until fully combined.
2. In an 8 or 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, spritz with non-stick spray.
3. Add the eggs to the skillet and cook without stirring until the edges begin to set. With a silicone spatula, push and lift the edges toward the center of the pan. Also, tilt the pan so the uncooked eggs move to the edge and under the cooked portion.
4. Repeat this method until the eggs are somewhat set but still a little soft in the center, about 6 minutes.
5. Add the Swiss cheese and Canadian bacon in a line down the center of the omelet and cook for about 1 more minute.
6. Slide the spatula around one side of the omelet at the edge to loosen it. Slip it under the eggs, and use it to carefully fold the omelet in half. Slide the spatula under the folded omelet to loosen it from the pan. Tilt the pan over a plate and use the spatula to nudge it onto the plate.
7. Serve immediately with cinnamon apples or another delicious suggestion listed below.
