My Big Fat Greek Omelet

Recipe by  

"If you're low-carbing it, try my spinach omelet with tomato and feta filling. If you thaw the spinach and squeeze it dry the night before, this omelet is very doable even for speedy weekday breakfasts."

Original recipe makes 4 servings Change Servings


  1. Heat a 12-inch non-stick skillet over low heat. (Use a 10-inch skillet if you halve the recipe to serve 2 instead of 4.) Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix tomatoes, 1/2 tsp. oregano, 1/4 tsp. salt, and pepper to taste. Stir in feta.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs together, then stir in spinach, 1/2 tsp. oregano, 1/4 tsp. salt, and pepper to taste. A few minutes before cooking omelet, add oil to the pan, and increase heat to medium-high. Heat until wisps of smoke start to rise from the pan. Add the egg mixture to the skillet. Using a plastic or wooden spatula to push back the eggs that have set, tilt the pan and let the uncooked egg mixture run onto the empty portion of the pan. Continue pushing back cooked eggs, tilting the pan and letting uncooked egg mixture flow onto the empty portion of the pan until omelet is moist but fully cooked, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low; pour the tomato mixture over half of the omelet. Using a slotted, flat spatula or turner, carefully fold the untopped half over the filling. Use the turner to slide the omelet onto a cutting board. Let stand a minute or two for the filling to warm.
  3. Cut the omelet into 4 wedges and serve immediately.

This is a great recipe, I actually mixed all the ingredients and baked it in a casserole dish. It turned out great!

It just had far too much spinach -- that seemed to overpower everything else.

My fiance & I enjoyed this omelet. I would suggest on cutting the tomatoes into smaller pieces. I used garlic & herb feta cheese. I also added green onions, which I highly suggest...1/2 regular onion would be delicious too.

Very good. I sauteed a little onion with some garlic in butter and added it to the tomato mixture. Tasty!

Very tasty and my family really enjoyed this for breakfast this morning. At first everyone looked at it and said "Spinach?" ewwww. But then after they took their first bite they loved it.

This was so delicious. I had fresh spinach and vine ripe tomatoes onhand so I just cooked the spinach a bit in the microwave and squeezed out the excess water. I cut the tomato into small pieces and seeded it. It was a totaly yummy recipe with just the right amount of seasonings. I will make this one again!!

Made for my hubby this morning and subbed mushrooms for the grape tomatoes since he doesn't like them, used fresh baby spinach, all egg whites and reduced fat feta cheese. Served with toasted whole wheat sandwich thins. Thanks!
