1 serving


  • 1 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed, or 4 eggs, beaten

  • teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, snipped, or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

  • 4 medium tomato slices

  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (1 ounce)


  1. In a small bowl, stir together eggs, salt and pepper. Coat an unheated 8-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat. Pour 1/2 cup of the egg mixture into the hot skillet.

  2. Immediately begin stirring egg mixture gently but continuously with a wooden or plastic spatula until mixture resembles small pieces of cooked egg surrounded by liquid egg. Stop stirring. Cook for 30 to 60 seconds more or until egg mixture is set but shiny.

  3. Sprinkle half of the oregano onto eggs. Place 2 slices of tomato on top of one half of the egg mixture in skillet. Top with half of the shredded mozzarella.

  4. With a spatula, lift and fold opposite edge of the omelet over tomato slices. Transfer to a warm plate. Repeat with remaining egg mixture, oregano, tomato and cheese to make another omelet.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
