Omelets are a really nice weekend breakfasts. An omelet is eggs cooked in a pan and then folded over some kind of filling. The filling can be whatever you want it to be. The combinations of fillings are almost endless. This time I filled my omelet with sauteed mushrooms, spinach, feta and dill. Omelets are pretty easy to make though you want to be careful that the egg does not stick to the pan. Using a non-stick pan and some butter really helps.
Mushroom, Spinach and Feta Omelet
- 1/2 tablespoon butter
- 4 ounces mushrooms (sliced)
- 2 ounces spinach
- 1 tablespoon dill (chopped)
- a touch of butter
- 3 eggs (lightly beaten.
- 1 ounce feta (crumbled)
- Melt the butter in a small pan.
- Add the mushrooms and saute until golden brown.
- Add the spinach and saute until wilted.
- Add the dill and the mixture aside.
- Melt the butter in a small pan.
- Add the eggs and spread them out to cover the entire bottom of the pan.
- Cook the eggs until the top is almost set.
- Place the mushroom mixture and the feta on one half of the eggs.
- Fold the uncovered half of the eggs on to the spinach mixture.

Kevin-again you slay me. This beats my kids leftover waffles that I ate for breakfast. Feta in an omelet surely overrides the need for cheddar.
This looks gorgeous Kevin. I’m just getting into using dill a bit more – it’a subtle flavour but very distinctive (in a good way!)
Another gorgeous omlette along these lines is Nigella Lawson’s corsican omlette (goats cheese and mint – gorgeous)
Lovely omelet, Kevin. I have to say mine have a tendency to look more like scrambled eggs. Love that spinach, feta and dill though.

Kevin the omelet looks great those flavours are right up my alley.
To help prevent sticking when making an omelet, take half the cracked egg shell and fill it with water and add that to your egg mix.
Nice post, your welcome to join the NO1 food blogging forum at http://jeenaskitchen.com
See you there.
I’d love to have this for breakfast!
A fabulous combo and beautiful presentation. I love the openness- with the filling spilling out.
I had half a muffin this morning before dragging my carcass into the office for a Hellish Weekend of Work. Oh, what I wouldn’t have done to have had just a bit of that gorgeous omelette!
This sounds soooo tasty!!!

Your omlette looks perfect, mine always ends up scrambled! lol Love your photo Kevin!!
The addition of dill sounds pretty good. I always make egg-white omelets for breakfast. And my trainer has me adding avocado to that along with a bowl of fresh fruit.
i can never do without cheese in my omelettes!! thanks for sharing – i’m actually off right now to do a major shop, which means feta cheese is definitely on my shopping list. it’s so lush. cheers

That’s a very nicely presented breakfast! I’m a big fan of omelettes on weekends, usually opting for some mix of peppers, salsa, and cilantro, but mine looks like quite a mess, lol. These flavors sound great!
Mmmhhh, that looks great and I’m sure it’d be great at any other time of the day as well.
I always love it when you post recipes with mushrooms. Fantastic combination of flavors. Some of my very favorite things. Beautiful. I haven’t eaten breakfast yet, but now I’m quite hungry all of a sudden!
That looks lovely Kevin! I do like the fillings you used. I am quite lazy when it comes to omelettes and usually add cheddar & mushrooms or cheddar and onion, with lots of pepper. Maybe I need to spruce up my omelette ideas!
Mmm…looks absolutely yummy.
Makes a great quick dinner too, as we discovered last week when we had an almost-empty fridge!
Kevin – you truly amaze me with everything you make! Your pictures are fantastic, and I am always left drooling over you latest recipe! I love omelets, but do need to work on the presentation… never terribly pretty. 🙂
what a beautiful looking omelet! mine always fall apart while i’m transferring them to the plate!
perfect breakfast fare!
This looks tasty! I don’t usually like omlets as I find people don’t cook the eggs enough for my liking – but this looks delectable!
Beautiful omelet! I keep stumbling on your blog as I search for healthy recipes. I’m always impressed with your recipes, comments and photos!! You’re on my favorites now. Please never leave the closet!
Just made this omlette for me and my boyfriend and had to thank you for it! Soo good!!! He loves feta cheese and I found a basil tomato feta and used that–went really nicely with everything. Also used olive oil instead of butter. Cooking is a new hobbie for me so thanks again! I had fun making this, and eatting it!
