Spinach and Cream Cheese Omelet

If you don't like spinach, then I would suggest that you skip this post and move to a different one. I love spinach, but this does have a strong spinach taste to it. It's pretty simple and quick for mornings on the go.

2 ounces cream cheese (not low fat)
2 eggs
1/4 cup chopped fresh spinach leaves
1/4 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese and spinach. In a separate bowl, beat the 2 eggs. Brush the olive oil onto the bottom of a frying pan. Preheat the pan on medium heat, and pour in the eggs.

Cook it until you are able to flip egg. Spread the cream cheese mixture onto cooked side of egg. Wait 30 seconds to ensure the other side of the egg is cooked, fold it in half, and wait for 1 minute to melt the cream cheese mixture. Remove it from heat and serve.
