    I used fat free cottage cheese, egg white sub (1/2 cup) and subed the Olive Oil for Pam spray and it reduced the calories by almost half . That way I was able to add 1/4 avocado and green onions. Next time I will throw in some tomatoes an mushrooms. Great recipe! The omelette was huge an filling! - 11/2/12

    This was really the first egg white omelet I've ever actually liked. Very flavorful and satisfying! Used 1/3 cup of egg beaters egg whites (-94 calories) and 4% milk fat cottage cheese (+14 calories). Added pepper but no salt. Great recipe! - 3/15/13

    I was also confused on the egg white or eggs question so I made it with eggbeaters (original kind). Also switched to low fat feta cheese because my cottage cheese was expired (oops!) Very yummy ~ husband also liked it. Recipe calculator for this version 276 cals., 16.2g fat, 3.6g carbs., 29.4 prot. - 6/24/12

    Must say surprised. I thought just by the look of cottage cheese on this I would not like it. Plus I had made a quiche awhile back and the spinach overwhelmed the whole dish. I must say I was pleastanly surprised. I LOVE THIS DISH! I will make this again definitely. Thank you! I Left out the salt. - 7/21/11
