Northern Omelette with Cheese and Spinach

How to make and omelette

This classic omelette breakfast is something that I love to eat quite a few times a week, its so quick and easy to make and can pack a tonne of nutrients to get your day off to a good start. I like to accompany the omelette with a variety of sides from natural select bacon, to toast, to home fries to just plain old fruit. The best part is you can add anything inside your omelettes from meats, cheeses or vegetables or just have them plain, its really your choice. This recipe is of course for one but easy to replicate into larger portions. I like to add milk to the egg mixture as this makes the eggs just a little more fluffy. Omelettes can have almost anything added to them, you can try types of cold cuts, other vegetables like kale, arugula, mushrooms etc., remember it is important to cook the eggs well and use a flat/straight wooden spoon to move around the egg inside a non stick skillet. This will make rolling the omelette out once complete onto the plate very simple. I love spinach and made sure to chop up enough, added a little green onion and cheese and viola your done. For those that are not sure how an omelette should be cooked, you can always refer to a video online.
