Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter * divided
  • 1/2 cup spinach * roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes * packed in oil, drained and diced
  • 1 tablespoon red onion * diced
  • 5 kalamata olives * sliced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese * crumbled

Instructions

  • Melt half of the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat.
  • Once melted, add the spinach, sun-dried tomato and onion. Cook for a minute or two until the spinach is wilted and the onions are just starting to soften.
  • Gently stir in the olives and cook another minute. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Crack the eggs into a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and whisk well.
  • Add the remaining butter to the same skillet. Once melted, ensure it covers the entire bottom of the skillet.
  • Pour in the eggs ensuring the bottom of the pan is fully covered. Place a lid over the skillet and cook until the egg is set, about 2 minutes.
  • Reserve 1 tablespoon of the spinach mixture then spoon the rest onto one half of the egg.
  • Sprinkle on the feta cheese, then fold the empty half of the egg over top of the filling.
  • Heat another minute or so, then transfer to a plate.
  • Top with the reserved spinach mixture and a sprinkle of extra feta.

Tips and Techniques

  • You can modify the ingredients and the amounts to suit your own tastes. Simply add or omit whichever ingredients you like.
  • If preferred, you can cook the eggs and the filling at the same time using 2 skillets.
  • While you can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, an omelet is best when eaten the day it’s prepared.
