Caramelized Onion, Arugula and Goat Cheese Omelets
Makes: 6  servings


  • 12 eggs
  • 6 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon  salt
  • 1 teaspoon  black pepper
  • 10 tablespoons  water
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 cups  baby arugula, plus more for garnish
  • 4 ounces  softened goat cheese, crumbled


1. Gently beat eggs and egg whites together in a medium bowl. Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until edges begin to brown, about 10 minutes.

Transfer onion to a bowl, wipe skillet clean and raise heat to medium. Mist with cooking spray, add arugula and cook, stirring, until slightly wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

3. Wipe skillet clean and mist with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add 1/6 of the egg mixture. Cook 15 seconds, stir with a silicon spatula, then swirl to evenly recoat pan. Cook until just set and no longer wet, about 2 minutes.

4. Sprinkle omelet with 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Arrange 2 tablespoons caramelized onions, 1/4 cup wilted arugula and 2 tablespoons goat cheese down center of omelet. Gently fold omelet into thirds over filling and slide onto a plate. Garnish with fresh arugula. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
