You could make plain old scrambled eggs for breakfast, or you could kickstart your morning with an infinitely customizable, delicious…Denver Omelet!
❇️ 1 whole egg
❇️ 3 egg whites
❇️ 1 Tbsp skim milk
❇️ 1/8 tsp black pepper
❇️ 1/4 green bell pepper, diced
❇️ 1/4 red bell pepper, diced
❇️ 1 slice onion, chopped
❇️ 1/4 cup lean ham, diced
❇️ 2 Tbsp reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1️⃣ In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, egg whites, skim milk and black pepper.
2️⃣ Lightly coat skillet with cooking spray. Add bell peppers, onions, and ham. Sauté over medium-high heat until onions start to soften and ham begins to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
3️⃣ Pour egg mixture into skillet, cover and cook about 4 minutes until eggs are set but still moist.
4️⃣ Spoon bell peppers, onions, and ham onto half of the omelet. Fold omelet over filling and sprinkle with cheese.
Now that’s a hearty breakfast!
