fresh spinach and onion omelet This hearty recipe becomes a one-dish meal with the addition of chopped fresh spinach and chopped tomato.
In cuisine, an omelette or omelet is a dish made from beaten eggs, fried with butter or oil in a frying pan (without stirring as in scrambled egg). It is quite common for the omelette to be folded around fillings such as chives, vegetables, mushrooms, meat (often ham or bacon), or some combination of the above. Whole eggs or egg whites are often beaten with a small amount of milk, cream, or water.

How to prepare Fresh Spinach and Onion Omelet Recipe
- In a small bowl, add eggs, milk or cream and season with salt and pepper. Beat until light and frothy. Set aside.
- In a non-stick pan, heat butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook until lightly caramelized, about 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until spinach has just slightly wilted. Add egg mixture to pan with spinach and using a spatula, pull edges away from sides of pan so eggs flow to center of pan.
