With flavors reminiscent of the classic Greek spanakopita, this easy omelet is just right for a light dinner or brunch. Frozen leaf spinach makes it ultra-quick.

Instructions Checklist
  • Squeeze spinach to remove any excess water. Blend eggs with a fork in a medium bowl. Add feta, scallions, dill, pepper and the spinach; mix gently with a rubber spatula.

  • Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source; preheat the broiler.

  • Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and tilt to distribute evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the bottom is light golden, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, 3 to 4 minutes. Place the pan under the broiler and cook until the top is set, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Slide the omelet onto a platter and cut into wedges.

I sauteed some onions and mushrooms and added them to the mixture as well as some herbs. With a piece of whole grain toast - fabulous! Read More

I really enjoyed it and I packed mine with spinach because I know its both filling and excellent for nutrition. The only thing I changed is that I only used half the yolks so we got some of the fatty flavors but a lot less cholesterol and fats. I'm sure you can do this with all egg whites too and make it super healthy. Read More

So good! This was really more of a frittata than an omelet but who cares it was delicious. I didn't not use the dill because I am not a big fan of it's flavor. I made this for myself and my boyfriend and was surprised by how large the portion was. It was very filling. I served this with crispy sauted red potatoes. I will certainly be making this again.
