Caroline’s Perfect Low Carb Omelets (Recipe)


Every time my friend Caroline comes over to hang out… I beg her to make one of her amazingly delicious omelets. 🙂 They are SO good! Several of you have asked how she makes such PERFECT omelets every single time, so – here you go!

The Perfect Low Carb Omelet

Caroline made another HUGE ham & spinach omelet for breakfast yesterday, and I talked her into sharing the recipe (and all her secrets!) with us. 🙂

Once sauteed, set this aside in a bowl:

How To Make An Omelet

Whip the 6 large eggs in a bowl with the salt and Heavy Whipping Cream. Beat well. Add the other 1/2 TBSP of real butter to the same skillet, then pour in the egg mixture:

Here’s how Caroline gets the egg done, cooking it slowly over medium heat:


Next she adds the ingredients sauteed earlier to half of the mostly cooked egg mix:

Then she tops that with the cheeses:

Flip the other side over the filled side, and cover – lower heat to Medium Low (2) and cover to finish cooking:


And it turns out fluffy, beautiful… and perfect! 🙂

You can use any choice of fillings of course, cut the recipe in half if you please, etc.

I find the omelets are just as good leftover and reheated as they are the first time, so I love having the leftovers for easy meals to grab & heat. 😉

I hope you enjoyed this recipe! I am in LOVE with Caroline’s beautiful omelets, and excited to finally learn how to make them myself.:)

    So you’re saying that the full omelet is 16 carbs correct?

  2. Linda S says:

    That looks sooo good. Thanks for the videos showing how she cooks the egg part of the omelet. I’ve never been able to get the eggs to cook without being too done on the bottom and raw in the middle.

    I tried to make this this morning and was a little disappointed because I though I could use frozen spinach for this recipe and it didn’t work out. I got the Shop Rite brand that was on sale and it had this terrible oder to it. The spinach also looked brown after I cook it. Spinach is suppose to be green! I will try it again with fresh spinach but in the meanwhile I will have to make a sausage and coby jack cheese omelet which is yummy but all the meat and cheese will FILL YOU like a tank. I ate half a potion thinking I would be hunger and was full until dinner.

      Hi Anne,

      I use frozen spinach all the time. Yours sounds like a bad batch or a bad brand maybe? I get Pictsweet Steamables Cut Leaf Spinach that you can steam right in the bag. It’s perfect every time! 🙂

      This one omelet that Caroline made filled up an entire platter, 16 net carbs, and served four for breakfast. 🙂
