Ingredients for Spinach and Mushroom Omelette with Feta
- Baby Bella Mushrooms (sliced) - Baby bella mushrooms are meatier than other variaties, but white and button also work well in this recipe.
- Baby Spinach - Kale can be substituted for the baby spinach, but will require a little extra cooking time.
- Whole Egg
- Egg White - You can use two whole eggs instead of using egg whites. The use of egg whites helps add a fluffier texture to the omelet.
- Reduced Fat Feta Cheese - Full fat feta works as well or you could substitute gorgonzola or even blue cheese.
- Salt & Pepper
How many eggs go into an Omelette?

How to Make Spinach Feta Omelette
- Start by spraying a skillet with nonstick spray.
- Add in the sliced mushrooms and saute, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms begin to soften.
- Once the mushrooms have softened, add in the baby spinach. Saute until wilted, adding in the salt and pepper to taste.
- Once the mushrooms have cooked through and spinach is wilted, remove them from the skillet and set aside.
- To a small bowl, add the egg and egg white whisking until light and fluffy.
- Return the skillet to the heat and spray again with nonstick spray.
- Pour the eggs into the skillet. Be sure not to stir or break up the eggs.
- Once they begin to firm (about 1-2 minutes), run a rubber spatula around the edges and then flip it completely over.
- Add the spinach, mushrooms, and feta to half of the omelet. Fold the other side over the mix.
- Remove from the stove and serve with extra feta on top.
Cook an omelette for one about 1-2 minutes before flipping.
A nonstick skillet that is the size of the omelette you would like works best.
