    Sunshine_Trish's Note:

    A recipe for the beginning stage of the Atkins Diet. I am going to try to bake this or make it as one huge omelet & then just cut it into quarters so I am not cooking one omelet at a time. Nutritional Information from Atkins is as follows: Per Serving: Net Carbs: 2 grams Total Carbs: 2 grams Fiber: 0 grams Protein: 20 grams Fat: 23 grams Calories: 290 Makes: 4 servings Active Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    omelets

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    2. 2
      Add 3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper and 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion; cook until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir in 3/4 cup diced ham; cook until all ingredients turn light golden, about 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Use 1/4 of this filling for each omelet, preparing recipe according to instructions.
    5. 5
      Whisk eggs, water, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
    6. 6
      Melt 1 teaspoon of the butter in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add scant 1/2 cup of the egg mixture and cook 1 minute until slightly set. Lift edges of omelet with a heatproof spatula; tilt pan to let uncooked egg flow underneath. Cook just until eggs are set, about 2 minutes.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the cheese over half of the omelet. Fold the omelet to enclose the cheese; transfer to serving plate. Repeat with remaining egg mixture, butter and cheese.
    8. 8
      ALTERNATIVE COOKING OPTION:.
    9. 9
      Pour entire contents into pan after mixed. Once cooked, divide into four equal pieces. Seems less time consuming this way.
