    Directions:

    1. 1
      Wash spinach leaves well-remove stems and slice leaves very thin; set aside.
    2. 2
      Whip the cream cheese with lemon juice and zest if using; set aside.
    3. 3
      Dice onion or shallot; set aside.
    4. 4
      In a large skillet over medium heat melt 2 tbsp of the butter.
    5. 5
      Add the spinach and onion and sauté for 3-5 minutes. You want the onion slightly translucent and the spinach wilted. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl; set aside.
    6. 6
      Melt the remaining 1-2 tbsp butter in the same pan over medium heat.
    7. 7
      Whip the eggs well with the whole milk and pour into the hot pan.
    8. 8
      Allow eggs to cook slowly, allowing eggs to almost set completely.
    9. 9
      Pour 1/2 the cheese mixture over 1/2 of the omelette, add the spinach onion mixture; sprinkle on the nutmeg, salt and pepper, and the remaining cheese.
    10. 10
      Fold the omelette over, turn off heat and let stand for 3 minutes.
    11. 11
      Serve.

      Thanks for posting the recipe. It was very well written and easy to follow (especially for someone like me who really does hate to cook).

      I dont know what it was, but there was way too much filling. I only used half of the cream cheese mixture and it was still too much. I would just suggest using half of everything or adding more eggs. I forgot the nutmeg, but added cheddar cheese and it ended up tasting really good - but it was a bit overkill halfway through eating it.

      I made this recipe as followed and it was outstanding! The only differences: I had to halve the recipe for one. The recipe had no problem being halved and tasted great! Next time, I might try to make the omelette a little healthier by either reducing the butter or cooking in spray canola oil. Otherwise I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks for the excellent recipe DiB!
