8 mins





  • 2
    large eggs
  • 2 tbsp
    heavy whipping cream
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • ½ tbsp
    butter or coconut oil (optional)
  • ¾ cup
    shredded cheese


  • 2
  • 2
    cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup
    baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp
    cream cheese (optional)
  • 1 oz.
    deli turkey
  • 1 tsp
    dried oregano


  1. Whisk together eggs and cream in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat the butter over medium heat in a non-stick frying pan. Spread out the cheese in an even layer so it covers the entire base of the pan. Fry over medium heat until bubbly.

  3. Carefully pour the egg mixture over the cheese and lower the heat. Cook for a few minutes without stirring.

  4. Fill one half of the omelet with mushrooms, tomatoes, baby spinach, cream cheese, turkey and oregano. Fry for a few minutes more.

  5. When the egg mixture starts to set (it can still be quite loose on top, but not too loose), fold the empty half over the side with toppings to form a crescent. Fry for a few more minutes and enjoy!



There are an infinite number of ways to vary the filling. Here are a few suggestions: mozzarella and pesto; taco mince and avocado; smoked salmon, cream cheese, and baby spinach; tuna, mayonnaise, and scallions.
