Koffee Korner Cafe Special Omelet
As I mentioned, my husband is on Medifast. Once a week, we go out to breakfast at a local restaurant. A great place, called Koffee Korner Cafe. A fabulous family place, where they know us so well, our drink order is being worked on the moment they see us walk through the door. Coffee, Iced Tea, Milk, OJ and Water....they have us all down.
Every week, almost without fail, my husband orders the special, but has them make it with egg beaters instead of eggs. And it's always some kind of pepper, onion, tomato type thing that smells divine the moment it hits the table.
Today, sitting here in my house, I was pining for one of those omlets. Did you know that Aldi has an "Eggbeaters". ???? Of course They call it Fit & Active Egg Substitute, and it costs about $2.00 less per pint than it's named brand alternative. And it tastes REALLY good.
I made myself an omelet today.
KKC Special Omelet
1/2 Cup Fit & Active Egg Substitute (equivelant of two eggs)
2 Tbs diced green pepper
2 Tbs diced onion
5 or 6 grape tomatoes, quartered
Sprinkle of Spice Classics Garlic Powder
1 Tbs Friendly Farms Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
Carlini Cooking Spray
In an 8"skillet, set on medium heat, spray with Carlini Cooking Spray. Saute pepper and onion, for about 5 or so minutes until translucent and soft. Add tomatoes and sprinkle with garlic powders. Mix together until the tomatoes break down some. Place in a bowl and set aside.
Wipe out the skillet and return to LOW heat - you will also need a cover (okay, I CHEAT when I make an omelet b/c I stink at getting it perfect!!!). Spray the skillet again and add the egg subtitute. Cover. When the bottom has cooked enough - get your spatula under it and run it around the sides, and flip it over. Sprinkle the cheese, and add the pepper/onion/tomato mixture on top in a "line". Cover and cook 1 more minute. Fold over and place on your plate. And enjoy. :)
So good. And very healthy, too.
