Atkins Low Carb Omelet Recipe

The omelet is about the perfect breakfast food as far as Atkins and other low carb diets are concerned. It's easy, quick, and can be done with a variety of ingredients!



Ingredients:

2 eggs
dash salt
dash pepper
1 Tbsp butter
1/8 cup random veggies

Break both eggs into a mixing bowl. Add in salt and pepper. Heat the pan over medium heat with a full pat of butter in it. Pour in the eggs. Wait about 20 seconds, and then sprinkle on whatever other ingredients you're going to add. I happen to like broccoli and tomato. You would use 1/8th cup of each. You can also add ham, turkey, mushrooms, and many other vegetables.

Cook covered for 1-2 minutes, until the top is still wet but mostly firm. If you add cheese, put that on near the end because it melts quickly. At this point, fold one corner over about 2/3rds across. If it's too wet, the ingredients will just slide off. If it's too dry, the fold won't "stick" and will spring back to flat.

Cook for another minute, and serve hot!
