Omelette with Goat Cheese and Chives

Did we have a "EUREKA" moment the other day when we discovered the egg beaters at the grocery store. We hate using egg whites even though they are much healthier than the yolks as they are not that flavorful. However, we were so pleased to know that the egg beaters are literally yolks that have their fat content and cholesterol removed. Ever since this find we have been using eggs for breakfast alternating them with oatmeal and cereal every other day. Isn't it a nice and a healthy way to start 2010!


Egg beaters 1/4 cup
bell peppers (green, red and orange) diced
yellow onions
goat cheese crumbled
cooking spray
fresh pepper from the mill
salt to taste

Method: Heat skillet. Spray PAM and add the egg mixture so that it spreads to the entire pan. Season with salt and pepper. Spread onions, bell peppers and mushrooms so that they cover the entire omelette. Press the vegetables lightly with a spatula. When the omelette turns golden brown flip half of the omelette so that it covers the other half. Reduce heat and cook further till the eggs are completely cooked. Place the omelette on a serving plate. Spread with chives and goat cheese. We like to have ours with a cup oh hot dark chocolate  or apple juice on the side.
