PROTEIN PACKED Broccoli Egg Omelet 

A delicious, LOW carb, satisfying dish for any time of the day. Feel free to add as many of your favorite veggies as you’d like: tomatoes, onion, asparagus, etc! 

Broccoli and Cheddar Egg White Omelet

  • 4 egg whites
  • cooked broccoli
  • 1 oz reduced fat cheddar cheese
  • Pam
  • salt and pepper

In a medium non-stick skillet, heat pan on medium-low.
In a small bowl, beat egg whites and season with salt and pepper. Heat leftover broccoli in microwave until hot.
Once pan is hot, spray a light coat of Pam to coat the pan. Pour in eggs and rotate the pan slightly so the eggs coat the bottom of the pan. Let the eggs cook a few minutes so they set, rotating the pan again if any egg remains uncooked, then placebroccoli and cheese in the center and fold sides over. If you have extra broccoli and cheese left, place on top of omelet and transfer onto a plate.
