This super-fluffy omelette is an easy dinner option when paired with a leafy salad. Though it might seem fussy to beat the whites separately, it's well worth the effort. The extra volume gives the dish a light, airy texture you won't get from beating whole eggs.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups packed baby spinach chopped
  • 4 green onions finely chopped
  • 10 eggs separated
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Method

In ovenproof nonstick skillet, melt 2 tsp of the butter over medium heat; cook spinach and green onions, stirring occasionally, until spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes. Scrape into bowl; let cool slightly. Stir in egg yolks, feta cheese, pepper and salt.

In bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into egg yolk mixture.

Add remaining butter to pan; melt over medium-low heat. Scrape in egg mixture, smoothing top; cook for 5 minutes. Transfer to 425 F (220 C) oven; bake until top is dry and springs back when touched, 12 to 15 minutes.
