Florentine Omelet

Florentine Omelet

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 bunch fresh spinach
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 2 or 3 slices bacon
  • 2 Tablespoons crumbled feta cheese*
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • dash of salt and pepper
First cook the bacon so that it's cooked but not crisp, then chop and dice it. Chop up the spinach.

Beat 3 eggs and add a little bit of milk to it, then add to a medium saute pan already heated and oiled on med-high heat. Mix in spinach and bacon before the egg gets to cook.

After about 2 minutes the egg should be somewhat dry and have a solid bottom - make sure at all times it isn't sticking and you can shake it around.

Get ready to flip it, bring the omelet (make sure it's not sticking) to the end of the pan angled down away from you, and give it a hard push and it will go up the pan and flip - just make sure you catch it. If the omelet gets all broken, it's okay - it takes practice, but it will be just as good.

Now, cook the other side lightly and add cheese on top (feta is my first choice). Turn the omelet onto a plate and serve.

Cooking Notes From Recipe Submitter:

Swiss cheese and American cheese both work great if you don't have feta.

When cooking the omelet, make sure not to play with it too much or else it won't cook properly. Make a little extra egg if you think the omelet will break and save it for when you flip the omelet, if it breaks you can add a little egg to the broken spots to make it nice again. Good luck! It's a delicious omelet.

A spinach and bacon omelet with feta cheese. Fresh spinach works best in this recipe, but thawed and thoroughly drained frozen spinach also works.

When I make this, I saute the spinach in the oil until it's wilted and about 1/3 its original volume - then I add the eggs and bacon to that. I know I loose a bit of the spinach nutrients by cooking it down, but it has way more flavor that way.
