Whittle Your Waist-Line With a Fluffy Omelet

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

Tastes like a breakfast souffle. The secret for making this fluffy is to separate the eggs. Add other veggies, if you desire. How much of the onion, pepper and chives is your choice. I use a cast iron skillet, so that it can go straight into the oven from range top.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks and cottage cheese until well-blended.
  3. Add Salt and pepper.
  4. In separate bowl, whisk or, using a hand mixer, beat egg whites until very fluffy, but not dry.
  5. On medium, heat a small (6") cast iron skillet and spray with butter spray.
  6. Saute pepper and onion until softened.
  7. Meanwhile, fold egg yolk mixture into egg whites.
  8. Immediately pour into skillet and cooks for about 2 minutes.
  9. Place in preheated oven and bake until puffy.
  10. Sprinkle with chopped chives to serve.
  11. Cut into wedges.

A lovely light and fluffy omelette that I enjoyed for my lunch yesterday! I ate this with a fresh lettuce and cucumber salad - the lettuce was freshly picked from my garden! I also used fresh chives from the garden and used an oregano flower for garnish. I cut this back to half, and used two eggs, as it was just for me. It was really puffed up and fluffy when I took it out of the oven, but sank a bit as I took so long to take my photos - oh well. Made for the Magic of Herbs in the Photo's Forum and as a little welcome back tag for Caro - glad you are back darlink! FT:-)
