Microwave Egg White Omelet

Submitted by: BEANBYDESIGN

Introduction

This is my go-to breakfast. It can be made entirely in the microwave, from ingredients that don't need to be pre-cooked (a must for me since I'm a student with no access to an oven!) You can substitute pre-packaged egg whites instead of separating them out from the egg if you like, and you can also switch out all of the other ingredients to things more to your taste (for example, I sometimes chop up a mini Babybel light cheese or a light Swiss Laughing Cow cheese in place of the shredded cheese).

    1 oz. baby spinach leaves

    It's 37C here today & I had to find some healthy meals to cook that wouldn't heat up my kitchen anymore than it already is. Thanks for posting this. It was great. I changed the veggies by putting a cup of a variety of peppers and mushrooms in, & adding some fresh herbs, no cheese. - 7/13/12

  • I hadn't considered cooking eggs in the microwave until I read this. Was running late for work one morning, gabbed the ingredients and cooked it at work. Fantastic idea. - 12/4/11

  • Wait until eggs/spinach are nearly cooked, then add cheese, to keep the creamy cheesy bites intact. I added 2 tbsp. of pico de gallo and enjoyed the look of my colorful as well as delicious breakfast! - 8/13/11

  • I like how easy and cheap this is! And packed with protein, keeps me full longer. I also think it's great how you can easily make it your own by adding other ingredients or spices. - 3/9/11
