 Florentine-swiss omelet

Florentine-Swiss Omelet for One

(Gluten-Free)

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • About 1/2 cup shredded spinach, fresh or frozen (defrost and squeeze out the water)

  • 1 thin slice reduced-fat Swiss cheese

Directions

Break eggs into small bowl. Add water and beat vigorously with whisk. Heat a nonstick eight-inch skillet on medium heat. Pour in eggs. Watch carefully. When egg begins to firm, lift with a spatula and let uncooked egg run underneath. Top with cheese and spinach. Fold over and turn off heat. There will be enough heat to warm the spinach and melt the cheese.
