Helpful hints

  • Sautéed onion will appear transparent but not brown when cooked.
  • Compare sodium content on bottled or canned red peppers.
  • Cook the omelet evenly by shaking the pan and gently lifting edges to allow uncooked egg to run underneath cooked egg.
  • Reduce fat and cholesterol by using nonstick cooking spray or a nonstick skillet, trans-fat free margarine instead of butter and liquid low cholesterol egg substitute instead of whole eggs.

Mushroom & Red Pepper Omelet

Why can't I use raw red pepper to lower the sodium content? Moderator comment: Yes you can use fresh peppers!

Used this recipe this morning, but used green peppers, omitted the worcstershire sauce and cream cheese. Don't know the nutrient content, though.
