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!
Caroline made another HUGE ham & spinach omelet for breakfast yesterday, and I talked her into sharing the recipe (and all her secrets!) with us. 🙂
I used the MyFitnessPal Recipe Calculator to enter the recipe so I could log my breakfast, so I’ll share the nutrition facts & macros with you too.
Low Carb Omelet Ingredients:
These are the ingredients (brands & amounts) we used for this omelet…
- 6 Large Eggs
- 1/2 Medium Yellow Onion
- 6.5 ounces Kentucky Legend Ham
- 3 ounces Dole Baby Spinach
- 1 cup Cheddar Jack Cheese
- 1 ounce Sargento Shredded Mozzarella
- 1 TBSP Real Butter
- 1 TBSP Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1/2 TSP Onion Powder
- 1/2 TSP Garlic Powder
- 1/2 TSP Salt
Chop the onion and saute it in 1/2 tbsp of real butter:
Chop the ham and brown it with the sauteed onions, then add the onion & garlic powder:
Add the baby spinach leaves next:
Once sauteed, set this aside in a bowl:
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! 🙂
It’s a HUGE omelet, easily 3-4 servings (4 servings for us, for sure).
It comes to 4 net carbs per serving:

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.:)
