Total Time:
10 mins


  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil 

  • 1 cup spinach

  • 2 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill


  1. Whisk eggs in a small bowl. Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, tilting to coat the pan. Pour in the eggs and immediately stir with a rubber spatula for 5 to 10 seconds. Then push the cooked portions at the edge toward the center, tilting the pan to allow uncooked egg to fill in around the edges. Continue to cook until almost set and the bottom is light golden, about 1 minute total.

  2. Remove from heat and top half the omelet with spinach and Cheddar. Fold the other half over the filling. Slide the omelet onto a plate and sprinkle dill on top.

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.)
