I was in the mood for an omelet (love omelets!) and also wanted to use up some ingredients that I had on hand. I came up with this yummy omelet that has the delicious flavors of eggs, tomatoes, basil and feta cheese. Measurements are an approximation...you can use more or less to your liking.
A great way to use garden herbs. This is adaptable to whatever herbs you have in your garden. When I made it mostly chives and tarragon because that is what I had the most of, but I think this will be good with oregano or other fresh herbs too. The original recipe didn't use any cheese, but I added two slices of deli Swiss cheese (about 1/4 cup). Recipe source: Bon Appetit (Bon Appetit 1991)
This recipe was posted on Weight Watchers. com but I enjoyed it so much (plus it was filling too) I didn't want to lose it. I made some minor changes that won't affect the point count - I figure 4 pts/serving. This made so much filling that it really is enough for 2-3 burritos (or served as scrambled eggs).
The tortilla adds a delicious crunchy shell and it smells so good while it is cooking. I actually made up this recipe from items in my kitchen and couldn't believe how wonderful it tasted! It is now a hit in my family and so EASY to make. Please rate and give feedback.
Update: Since I first made this five years ago, we still enjoy this at least once a month. I have found that I can alternate the ingredients to use up items I have in the fridge. I have used mushrooms, sauteed onions, cherry tomatoes and even feta cheese instead of cheddar cheese. And it always comes out fantastic. I have also found that there are times I need to use more or less eggs depending on the ingredients. Also, a glass pie pan is so much better than a metal as it toasts the tortilla just right. Such an easy recipe with gourmet taste!
Since trying some of the recipes on the South Beach diet I've learned how to prepare foods with less calories and carbs. The egg basis for this omelet is Nulaid Liquid Eggs. This liquid egg replacer comes in a 16 oz. carton is cage free and 99% real egg. I got it at Wild Oats. They contain less then 1 gram of carbs per serving. I served my omelet along with one piece of sprouted wheat toast and a little Earth Balance Vegan margarine. I also had a nice hot cup of herb teal to wash it down.
