Spinach and Feta Omelette

Spinach and Feta Omelette


With all of the great omelettes that I have been enjoying lately, I just had to try one with my favorite spinach and feta flavour combo. I was first introduced to the spinach and feta flavour combo in spanakopita, a Greek spinach and feta pie, and I have been reinventing that flavour combo in different dishes ever since. Now it was time for an omelet version! I stuck pretty much with the basics from the spanakopita filling with the spinach, feta and fresh herbs including parsley, dill and mint along with some green onions. This time when cooking the omelette, I poured the eggs into the pan first and let them partially set before sprinkling on the spinach topping so that it would not all sink to the bottom. The spinach and feta omelette worked out even better than I had hoped for and it will definitely be on my regular rotation from now on. It is such a quick and tasty breakfast and as an added bonus it is pretty healthy as well.

Another great combo that I never thought of doing, you really impressed me, Kevin.

Simple =) I find that most cheeses go well with eggs!

I love this combination. It's also really good if you put some freshly chopped tomato on it right before serving. The cool tomato is a nice contrast to the other flavors.

I have some feta left over from spanakopita that's just waiting to be introduced to a couple of eggs in my fridge! This looks wonderful!

Kevin,
This is absolutely gorgeous. I always have trouble just letting the eggs sit without lifting up the edge a little. I guess I'm too impatient! However, your patience paid off in such a lovely presentation.

Thanks for this recipe, this gave
my usual omelet a twist, I enjoyed it more when a put some tomatoes as suggested. I like tomatoes because it makes my skin glow. Hope you'll also feature more simple and healthy foods like this because I am not really gifted when it comes to the kitchen... Thanks a lot

Gorgeous as usual. I am now craving an omelette!

Rambling Tart said...

YUM! YUM! I just bought a whackload of spinach and feta and am having such fun dreaming of ways to use it. :-) One of my most favorite combos ever. :-)

Julie said...

Great tip to let the eggs start cooking first so the spinich doesn't sink to the bottom. Great combination of flavors.

Teri said...

What a wonderful and simple idea!

Spinach and feta is my favorite omelette. I always keep frozen spinach on hand for it. I thaw my spinach in the microwave, squeeze it dry. Then I saute it with some garlic and red onion. Adding chopped sundried tomatoes just sends it over the top. Biting into those sweet chewy tomato bits sends it over the top. Sometimes I substitute goat cheese too ...ahhh heaven!

couture artwork said...

Oh how I love everything with spinach. And I also like feta cheese a lot. This omelette must be delicious. Especially with garlic.
