Western Omelet

The classic Western omelet gets a Paleo twist with more nutrition from the addition of spinach and tomatoes and healthy coconut oil for a cooking fat. You could choose a meat other than ham if you’d like, and add mushrooms or other vegetables to your taste. Add a spoonful of salsa for more flavor!

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg(s)
  • 1 teaspoon(s) coconut oil
  • 1/2 medium onion(s), yellow diced
  • 1 medium bell pepper(s) diced
  • 1 medium tomato(es) diced
  • 1 cup(s) spinach
  • 1/4 pound(s) ham cooked and diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) sea salt to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) black pepper freshly ground, to taste

Instructions

  1. Wash and chop vegetables. Set aside.
  2. Crack eggs into small bowl and beat well. Set aside.
  3. Heat non-stick skillet over medium heat. When hot, add coconut oil to pan.
  4. Pour half of the beaten eggs into the skillet and coat the bottom of the pan. When the egg has partially set, scrape the edges and tip the pan so that the uncooked egg at the top can spread to the hot cooking surface of the skillet.
  5. Immediately after, add half of the vegetables and ham to one half of the omelet and continue to cook until the egg is almost fully set.
  6. Using a spatula, fold the empty half over top of the ham and veggies. Cook for 2 minutes longer, then serve.
  7. Repeat the process with the remaining ingredients to make the second omelet.
