I know oats rule the healthy living breakfast world, but I’ve tried them, and though I like them (piping hot and usually in winter time), I’m more of an eggs kind of gal.
I know people usually skip eggs on weekdays because of busy mornings, but I can show you how to make a delicious and filling omelet in less than 10 minutes. Ready?
Grab your ingredients!
Greek-Inspired Weekday Omelets
Time saver: do your Sunday prep work and have diced onions and tomatoes already on hand.
- 2 eggs
- diced onions
- chopped baby spinach
- diced tomato
- a stick of butter
Have a small, nonstick pan available for omelets. Set it over medium to medium-high heat and rub the stick of butter on it quickly to barely coat it.
Toss in your onions and let them start sizzling, while you crack your eggs into a bowl and whip together (or use 1 egg and 1 egg white like I do).
Once your eggs are prepped, your onions should be nice and browned.
Turn the heat to medium-low and throw in your diced tomatoes and spinach.
In less than 30 seconds, they will look like this:
Pour in your eggs.
Time saver: find a lid that covers your pan and cover. This way your eggs will set in less than 2 minutes.
Once your eggs are set, sprinkle on some feta cheese and fold over. If you’re feeling fancy, also add some fresh chopped herbs, salt and pepper, bacon crumbles, salsa or anything else that strikes your fancy. That’s what omelets are for!
Plate it up and devour!
And there you have it- delicious, protein-rich breakfast in under 10 minutes!

Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen says
Oh my goll, Brittany…I cannot make an omelette to save my life! Yours looks beautiful, but every single time I try…I end up scrambled. 🙂
Cait @ Beyond Bananas says
That omelette looks delicious! I also like to put tons of veggies in mine! My faves are red pepper and spinach!
Michelle @ The Cooking Life says
ohmyword, that omelet looks great! now that I actually now how to make an omelet, I will have to try this. and your method is different from how I do it, and I think I like yours better. thanks for sharing!
Holly @ The Runny Egg says
Brittany that omelet looks so good! Normally I just make over easy eggs and toast — and we eat that 1-2 mornings during the week. Eggs aren’t any harder (for me) than making oatmeal or a big smoothie.
My favorite omelet ingredients — ham, bell pepper and sweet onion!
Cool – 10 minutes? Wow! Going to give this a try some day of the week. Thanks for sharing and such a great idea to prep everything on a Sunday
Kelli H (Made in Sonoma) says
beautiful omelet! I think I’d like the one you made! Anything with feta I usually love.
Allison @ PickyEatingRD says
Omelets yum! My favorite addition is cheeeeseeee. Lots of cheese and all different kinds at that!
Katie H says
This looks great- now I really want an omelette! My favorite topping is cheese. Lots of it. Which defeats the whole healthy breakfast purpose but hey, more protein right?
Susan @ Real Life Travels says
Quick, easy and delicious … I like it! Although I do love me some ham and cheese omelettes!
It’s totally okay to be an eggs over oatmeal gal. My sister is the same way. I’m so picky about eggs. Sometimes I love them, sometimes I hate them, but I must admit that omelet looks great! I like mine loaded with veggies!
Yum-let’s have this is a couple of weeks!
I’m pretty sure this omelet thing is going to take a while to get the hang out, but you make it look easy! I recently starting eat eggs (I never liked them before) and I’m stoked to see a new way of eating them instead of scrambled.
Corey @ the runner's cookie says
I find this super helpful!! I always seem to mess up omelets – you make it seem more manageable, and the pictures going along with each step really help culinary-challenged people like myself 🙂
Jess Mathias says
Thanks for the tip with the lid.
I make an egg scramble everyday, not an oats girl. yeck. I include lots of veggies and diced turkey. 2 eggs, 1 reg and 1 egg white only.
Erin @ The Grass Skirt says
I love omelets! We have them for dinner all of the time, actually. My favorite ingredient is definitely veggies. 🙂
Lindsay @ The Lean Green Bean says
your omelet is beautiful!!!
I’m an omelet fan too but its a rare occasion that I crave them over my oats. Mine never look as perfectly put together and delicious as yours though!
Heather @ girlyeverafter says
Omelets are my fav! It’s the perfect filling meal, but usually I’m in a rush so I don’t think to make them. Good idea to prep the night before!
Lauren B says
Other than tons of veggies… diced ham! It adds a nice saltiness to the omelet without having to add table salt. Yummo!
Karlee @olivewineandfood says
yay so excited!!!!!! and i looooove omelettes. i don’t know why i don’t make them more often!
Allison (Allison's Delicious Life) says
This looks way too delicious to be true! I never think to make omelets for myself on a weekday, especially with work. However, I’d love to give this a try for a quick lunch maybe!
