Kickstart Your Day with This Omelet Recipe

Red and Yellow Pepper Omelet



1 teaspoon olive oil

1 sweet red pepper, thinly sliced

1 yellow pepper, thinly sliced

4 egg whites

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided



In a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat, warm oil; add the red peppers and yellow peppers; cook, stirring frequently for 4 to 5 minutes. Keep warm over low heat. In a small bowl, lightly whisk together the egg whites, basil, and black pepper. Coat a small non-stick frying pan with non-stick spray. Warm over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add half of the egg mixture, swirling the pan to evenly coat the bottom. Cook for 30 seconds or until the eggs are set. Carefully loosen and flip; cook for 1 minute, or until firm. Sprinkle half of the peppers over the eggs. Fold to enclose the filling. Transfer to a plate. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the Parmesan cheese. Repeat with the remaining egg mixture, peppers, and 1 teaspoon of Parmesan cheese.
