- Why Choose Sharp?
Start your morning off with a delicious omelet that incorporates vegetables and protein into your diet.
In a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat, warm oil; add the red and yellow peppers; cook, stirring frequently for 4 to 5 minutes. Keep warm over low heat. In a small bowl, lightly whisk together the egg whites, basil and black pepper. Coat a small nonstick frying pan with nonstick spray. Warm over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add half of the egg mixture, swirling the pan to evenly coat the bottom. Cook for 30 seconds or until the eggs are set. Carefully loosen and flip; cook for 1 minute or until firm. Sprinkle half the peppers over the eggs. Fold to enclose the filling. Transfer to a plate. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of parmesan cheese. Repeat with the remaining egg mixture, peppers and parmesan cheese.
