Who said omelettes were off limits? This omelette idea is healthy (it even has bacon!), spicy, full of flavor and enough for 2!
cup egg substitute (or 2 egg whites and 1 egg yolk)
1 slice turkey bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
cup canned green chiles, chopped
medium tomato, chopped
2 tbsp light shredded cheese (such as cheddar or jack)
2 tbsp salsa
1 tbsp non-fat sour cream
1 green onion, sliced
1 Warm the bacon, chiles and tomato in a skillet; stirring well.
2 Coat a medium sized skillet with cooking spray. Add the egg substitute and let the mixture cook until the edges are firm. Using a rubber spatula, lift the eggs gently and let the uncooked egg run under the firm area.
3 Continue cooking until almost set and flip omelette over. Fill with warmed bacon, tomatoes and chiles and sprinkle with cheese. Fold over and top with salsa, green onion and sour cream.
4 To lower sodium, use fresh chiles and salsa and lower sodium bacon.
5 Try splitting this omlette and adding fresh fruit salad on the side!
