Mushroom and Pepper Omelet

Omelets work wonderfully for breakfast, or make a fantastic dinner option if you are running short on time.  One of the best things about omelets is that you can use whatever you have on hand to change up the flavor.  This vegetable omelet uses peppers and mushrooms for flavor, but onions, spinach, broccoli, and squash all make wonderful veggie omelets.  

This recipe makes 4 servings in one pan, so you don't have to stand over the stove to make each individual omelet...perfect for feeding a family when time is running in short supply.  


1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
Cooking spray
1/4 cup chopped green onions 
1/2 medium green bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 cups sliced mushrooms 
1/2 cup chopped plum tomato 
1/2 teaspoon The Delicious Dietitian Southern All Purpose Spice Blend
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
8 large eggs 
2 large egg whites 
1/2 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese

Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add green onions; sauté 1 minute. Add bell pepper; sauté 1 minute. Add mushrooms; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in tomato and black pepper; cook 30 seconds. Remove vegetable mixture from pan; cover and keep warm.
Place spice blend, eggs, and egg whites in a bowl; stir well with a whisk to combine.
Place 1 teaspoon oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add egg mixture to pan; cook until edges begin to set (about 2 minutes). Slide front edge of a spatula between edge of omelet and pan. Gently lift edge of omelet, tilting pan to allow some uncooked egg mixture to come in contact with pan. Repeat procedure on opposite edge of omelet. Continue cooking until the center is just set (about 7 minutes).
Spoon vegetable mixture evenly over 1/2 of omelet; top vegetable mixture with cheese. Loosen omelet with a spatula; fold in half. Carefully slide omelet onto a serving platter. Cut omelet into 4 wedges.  Serve immediately.  Serves 4.
