Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

What you’ll need:

  • Shredded cheddar (mild)
  • Fresh spinach (1 cup)
  • Fresh tomatoes (1/2 cup, diced)
  • Eggs (3 medium/large)
  • Vegetable oil (1 teaspoon)

How it’s made:

  1. If your tomatoes are not diced, start by dicing them into small cubes.
  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl until they are well mixed.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet for 2 minutes; add the fresh spinach to the skillet.
  4. Once the spinach is slightly limp, remove if from the skillet and sit to the side.
  5. While the skillet is still heating, pour in the eggs until they are spread evenly across the skillet.
  6. Cook for 3 minutes or until the eggs have hardened around the edges and from the bottom upward.
  7. Using a wide spatula, flip the entire egg to cook the top side. Cook until egg is no longer runny (or to your liking).
  8. Add the spinach, tomatoes, and 1/2 the cheese to one side of the egg in the skillet. Spread contents evenly on that side.
  9. Using the spatula, flip the empty side of the egg over onto the side with the contents, closing the omelet. Cook for 1 minute.
  10. Now add the remaining cheese and any contents that escaped into the skillet onto the top of the omelet. Cook for 1 minute and remove from skillet.
  11. Enjoy!
