The Best Damn Veggie Omelet

Have I ever told you guys that breakfast is legit my favorite meal of the day? I just feel that preparing breakfast is so exciting to me. It's as though I have endless options and can mix and match anything at my first meal of the day. Seriously! I love breakfast food.

Truth be told, I feel like breakfast is when I really get most of my nutrition in. Creating a veggie omelet allows for me to mix in spinach, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms (also my favorite veggies if you haven't noticed). And then, I always have a smoothie or a cup of fruit on the side.

Omelets are definitely a staple for me. The eggs give me that protein that I need to start my day, and it's just so damn easy to make. I will admit, though, that it took some practice to master my omelets. I've experienced the over cooked eggs. I've had the omelet that just wouldn't flip properly. I've had the omelet that stuck to the frying pan. It happens. They don't always come out pretty.

I don't add salt to my eggs. I usually season my omelets with garlic powder and pepper. I'm that weird person that doesn't too much mind the fresh taste of produce. Adding the cheese over top also gives it that extra flavor.
-2 eggs
-1 tbsp of vegetable oil
-1 cup spinach
-2 tbsp of chopped yellow onions
-3 grape tomatoes chopped
-1/4 cup of shredded fiesta cheese

-Taking two large eggs, crack and scramble into a  bowl until a smooth yellow color. Set aside. We will get back to this.
-In a small frying pan on medium-high heat, add your vegetable oil to coat the bottom
-Add in your veggies to begin to sautee. I like to do this until the spinach is wilted. Stirring ocassionally. Once veggies are tender, set aside.
-In a separate pan, pour your eggs. DO NOT STIR. Taking your frying pan, swirl until eggs are evenly covering the frying pan
-As the eggs begin to settle, gently take a spatula to lift one end of the egg while tilting the frying pan to allow any of the liquid egg to slide underneath. Continue to do so until no more liquid is remaining
-Once eggs are beginning to settle, you can add your veggies to the middle of the egg pancake. Sprinkle cheese over top
-Take your egg "pancake" and slide onto a plate halfway, and flipping the other half of the egg pancake over top. You can use a spatula to press the top of the egg to ensure it folds over

*Note* If pan is not evenly coated, the egg "pancake" will stick making the last step difficult for the egg to slide out

Omelets are a pretty simple breakfast once you figure out the ins and outs to it. I've seen it prepared a few ways where some actually flip the egg over like a pancake. I've tried this way before and I've found that I don't particularly like the "texture" of my egg this way. But, it still works!
