Spinach and Feta Cheese Omelette

2013-02-25

Make breakfast a special occasion when you serve these perfect omelets, given a Greek touch with the flavors of spinach and feta cheese.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 clove garlic , minced
  • 3/4 cup fresh spinach , washed, stems removed
  • 1/3 cup diced tomato
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 or 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill

Method:

In a medium nonstick skillet with low, sloping sides, combine the olive oil and the garlic. Cook over low heat until the garlic begins to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add the spinach; cook 1 minute. Add the tomato and a pinch of salt and cook an additional 30 seconds. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl; set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and water, just until blended. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Place the skillet, wiped clean, over medium heat 2 minutes. Add the butter, swirling it to coat the pan. When the butter stops sizzling, pour the egg mixture into the pan. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the bottom is set, about 10 seconds. Using a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon, pull the set eggs at the edges of the pan toward the center, allowing the unset eggs to run from the center to the sides. (Adjust the heat if necessary to prevent browning.) Continue to cook until a thin layer of unset egg is visible on top. The total cooking time should be less than 2 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat; spoon the spinach mixture across the middle third of the omelet; sprinkle with the feta and dill. Using a spatula, fold the third of the omelet nearest the handle over the center third with the filling. Holding the handle, tilt the pan so that the omelet rolls out of it and onto a plate, seam side down.

    I’m cooking al the sides for Thanksgiving and I’ve got the potatoes peeled, cut into boilable chunks, and ready to boil. When they’re soft and ready to mash, where do I go from there? Better Homes and Gardens said half a cup of hot milk and 2 tablespoons butter…what do you say?

    I am wanting to lose 30 lbs.. Im 5’7” and im 200 lbs on a good day. Im pretty muscular but basically I have a layer of fat all around my body. my upper body is most defined, basically if I put a towel to above my belly button I am good looking the rest needs work. I need to lose 20-30 lbs, Im looking to be around 4-5 lbs a month lost average.. (6-7 maybe the first month and 3-4 the others, just because I have more fat now than the other months)

    I just need a breakfast lunch and dinner plan.. I have a slow metabolism I think so metabolism boosters would be good.

    Any help would be a great help:) thanks in advance!

    If so, then how much milk is to be added in place of 1/4 cup heavy cream?

    This is the recipe:
    Homemade Caramel Sauce
    Makes approximately 14-16oz

    1 cup sugar
    6 tablespoons water
    4 tablespoon butter
    ΒΌ c heavy cream
    1/4 teaspoon salt (optional, for salted caramel sauce)
    Instructions:

    Place sugar and water into a saucepan over medium low heat and stir the until sugar has dissolved. Dissolve any crystals forming on the side with a wet pastry brush.
    Once sugar has dissolved increase heat to high.
    At this point do not stir the mixture directly. Now and then, using the handle, give the pot a swirl to keep the mixture moving. The mixture will start to bubble after a minute or so.
    After 3-4 minutes the mixture will turn from a light amber to medium amber and then finally to a dark reddish brown color. Once the mixture starts to smoke, add the butter and heavy cream. The mixture will bubble wildly. Whisk to combine (bubbles will subside upon cooling). Set aside to cool completely.
    Please please answer this question too!
    Your help would be appreciated… :)

    If I fixed you an omelette with 2 eggs, chopped fresh spinach and feta cheese, would you try it?

    I was at a restaurant killing some time with my boyfriend [his stereo in his truck was getting fixed]. I ordered that very omelette, and he thought it sounded gross, but, to my surprise, he tried it when I offered him a bite, and loved it.

    Would you try it if it sounds gross…?
    Oh, it also has diced fresh tomato in it…

    Hi there. I love cooking but I would like to start small. I cook pasta + risotto a lot but I now want to take it back a step and work on small/easier things. Im looking for ideas on something to cook for breakfast (Something to do with eggs maybe?) like an omelette (although I cook that abit aswell) and something for lunch/dinner.

    I dont mind if its baking either, I dont want to make something to sweet though.

    Thanks for all the suggestions :)

    My dentist doesn’t want me eating anything that isn’t soft because I have a bad tooth (it’s infected and hurts really bad if anything touches it) and I’m not supposed to chew anything on that side of my mouth.

    Does anyone have some easy/quick recipes for soft foods that are really good?

    I’m getting sick of sandwiches, mac n cheese, soup, chicken nuggets, and other plain soft foods.
