Meatless Monday Breakfast for Dinner!

Sometimes breakfast tastes better at night. My boys started school today (about one month too early in my opinion), so I have a feeling tonight might be a scramble. It seems we forget something every year and I expect a quick dash to Target for whatever that is - lined paper, calculator, extra folder, who knows.

So, when that times comes, I'll be ready for dinner in a flash with custom-made omelets for all! Super simple to assmemble, prepared with personal favorites and ready in just minutes. Plus, I like knowing that my boys are getting lots of protein and other nutrients in every bite.

Custom Omelets
For heartier omelets, use 3 eggs per person, instead of two.

Cooking spray
8 large eggs
2 tablespoons water
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Optional fillings:
Shredded cheese (if you're gluten-free, use sliced cheese)
Cherry tomatoes
Baby Spinach
Sliced mushrooms
Green onions
Black olives
Fresh herbs (basil, parsley, dill, cilantro)
If you're not going meatless:
Smoked Turkey

Coat a small skillet with cooking spray and preheat to medium-high.
Whisk together the eggs and water until bubbly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Pour one quarter of the mixture into the hot skillet and turn the skillet to make an even layer on the bottom. Keep turning the skillet until the eggs are almost cooked through to the top. Flip the eggs and add desired fillings to one side. Fold over and cook for 30 seconds.
Transfer to a serving plate and cover with foil to keep warm while you prepare remaining omelets.

Serves 4
