My Favorite Breakfast Recipe – The Versatile Egg White Omelet

My Favorite Breakfast Recipe – The Versatile Egg White Omelet

Since becoming diabetic 36 years ago I have eaten breakfast every morning.  Through the years I’ve had English muffins, bagels, cold and instant hot cereal (Irish style Oatmeal), toast, eggs and occasionally pancakes. I get into zones when I eat the same thing every morning for weeks until I get bored.  Of late I’ve switched to Arnold’s Melba Thin Rye Bread.   2 slices are only 20 carbohydrates. I eat 1 slice so do the math — 10 carbs a slice! Just be careful to set the toaster on a low setting or you’ll be eating charcoal.

I’m still enjoying the egg white omelet due to slightly elevated cholesterol levels. Still in my “egg white omelet zone” with a few variations.  If you prefer yellow, you can always get the “Egg Beaters” or their generic counterpart.  Basically they are egg whites with yellow coloring in them—no yolks.

My Versatile Egg White Omelet Recipe:

Spray a small frying pan with Pam or a generic brand.  After heating the pan on a low flame for a few minutes take 1/3 cup of egg whites and pour them into the pan.  When the omelet is white add some of the following into the center: 2 tablespoons of diced salt-free canned or freshly sliced grape tomatoes, sprinkled with an fresh herbs like basil and rosemary, then sprinkle parmesan cheese over that and cover the pan.  After two or three minutes of heating the ingredients remove it from the heat.  Taking a pancake flipper and fold the omelet over, then slip it onto your dish.  I enjoy either a slice of “Nine Grain” toast (by Prairie Grain Bread Company) or the Melba Thin Rye on the side with non-butter spray and some Polaner’s Blueberry Spreadable Fruit (Jam).

The egg white omelet is very versatile.  The most important part is to cook it on a low flame.  You can add blueberries for a pancake style omelet and use Cary’s Sugar Free Syrup on the side.  Any fruit will do; chopped apples, strawberries, pineapple, peaches.  You can even add a few chopped nuts and cinnamon.
