Double Cheese Spinach Omelet

Double Cheese Spinach Omelet
Serves 2
Combining the vegetable-rich flavors of a frittata with omelet technique, this savory classic has a mozzarella-pepper filling wrapped in feta and spinach.
  1. 1 bunch green onions (scallions)
  2. 1 sprig fresh oregano
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  4. 1 container (5 ounces) fresh baby spinach
  5. 2 large eggs
  6. 1 tablespoon milk
  7. ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
  8. 2 slices fresh mozzarella (about 1 ounce)
  9. ¼ cup roasted red pepper slices
  1. Cut green onions crosswise into diagonal slices. Finely chop oregano. Heat olive oil in 9-inch nonstick skillet, over medium heat. Add green onions and cook until slightly softened, about 1 minute. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until leaves wilt, about 2 minutes. Drain any liquid from pan, then stir in oregano.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Sprinkle feta onto spinach mixture, then pour egg mixture on top. Using a spatula, softly stir mixture in pan until eggs are set, about 4 minutes.
  3. Place mozzarella and pepper slices down the center of the egg mixture. Gently fold over one side to cover filling, then fold in other side. Slide omelet onto a flat plate and serve promptly.

Tenaya Darlington

Unlike most people who have a nibbling relationship with cheese, Tenaya Darlington (aka Madame Fromage) has an obsession. Three years ago, she began a dairy diary on Blogger, and the rest is fricassee. She can’t leave the house without a cheese valise. Or at least a plate of appetizers. On rainy nights, she likes to invite the rabble in to get rid of the rinds in her crisper. You might find her serving the odd bit of Stilton with a Manhattan, or just a few nubbins with cans of Schlitz. You may have read about her cheese soirees in The New York Times.
