About Veggie Thyme Over-stuffed Omelet for Two

My Veggie Thyme Over-stuffed Omelet is a single skillet dish. The onions and mushrooms will start to caramelize while the peppers are perfect at crisp-tender. The spinach will wilt, while the thyme becomes fragrant.

I finish the omelet in the oven. That ensures that the eggs don’t
over-brown on the bottom, and they stay tender. Most omelets involve cheese, but I don’t think this needs it. But, you can always add a little feta or Parmesan if it strikes your fancy. Have fun making and sharing my Veggie Thyme Over-stuffed Omelet for Two!

Equipment

  • medium-sized oven-proof omelet skillet

Ingredients
  

  • canola cooking spray
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red or yellow bell pepper
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • =====
  • 1 1/2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
  • =====
  • canola cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350º F. Heat a medium-sized oven-proof omelet skillet, coated with cooking spray, over medium heat on your stovetop.
  • Add the onion, peppers, and mushrooms. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, until peppers are crisp-tender.
  • Stir in the spinach and thyme leaves and continue to sauté, stirring constantly, until the spinach wilts, 1 minute. Remove the mixture to a bowl and set aside. Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel.
  • Whisk the eggs with the milk and salt and pepper in a medium-sized bowl. Heat the same skillet, coated with cooking spray, over medium heat. Add in the eggs and heat until the edges begin to set and lift from the pan.
  • Place the skillet in the oven until the eggs are set on top, about 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven. Put the reserved vegetables on one-half of the eggs and fold the other side on top. Carefully remove the omelet to a serving dish or split between two plates for two servings.
