Looking for a low calorie breakfast combo without the fuss. Try a low calorie Western Omelette with a side of wheat toast. The total preparation and cook time totals 12 minutes. Let’s eat!
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 large egg
3 large egg whites
1 Tbsp skim milk
dash of ground black pepper
1/4 cup diced lean ham (1 ounce)
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tsp ketchup
1 whole tomato diced
1. Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the green pepper and onion for 3 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Set the vegetables aside.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, egg whites, milk, and black pepper. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour the egg mixture into the pan, coating the entire bottom of the pan. Allow to cook for 2 minutes. Next, sprinkle the vegetables, ham, and cheese on one half of the omelet. Then, using a spatula, fold one end of the omelet over the other, enclosing the vegetables, ham, and cheese inside. Continue cooking for 2 more minutes, until egg is fully cooked through.
4. Slide the omelette onto a plate.
