VEGETABLE AND CHEESE OMELET

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of egg beaters
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon cheese, cheddar, reduced-fat, shredded
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup of salsa

Directions

  1. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Place onion and bell pepper inside of the skillet. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes stirring occasionally until vegetables are just tender.
  2. Shred the cheese into a small bowl and set it aside.
  3. Remove the vegetables from heat, transfer them to another bowl
  4. Coat the skillet with the nonstick spray again. Pour the egg whites into a pan and cook until the edges begin to set. Gently lift the edges of the omelet with a spatula, tilting the pan to allow uncooked egg mixture to come in contact with the pan.
  5. Sprinkle the cheese over the omelet and spoon the vegetable mixture into the center of the omelet. Using a spatula gently fold one edge of the omelet over the vegetables. Let the omelet cook for another two minutes or until the cheese melts to your desired consistency. Slide the omelet out of the skillet and onto a plate. Cut in half and serve with salsa.
