Egg White Omelette with Ham and Goat Cheese is a Perfect Breakfast!

I love a good egg white omelette, but when you add leftover baked ham and herbed garlic goat cheese, it’s an amazing combination that gives you a great protein boost first thing in the morning.  I love to use just the egg whites, as they are fluffy and beautiful, especially in an omelette.  I use baked ham from a previous meal, trimmed very lean, and then diced small, so it heats up in the omelette and is tender.  The cheese, what can I say about goat cheese?  I’ve tried every flavor I can find and I love them all.  I chose a garlic herb for this egg white omelette, and it didn’t let me down.  It adds fantastic flavor without adding a whole lot of calories.

The Details: Egg White Omelette

So, here’s the down and dirty details about this omelette’s nutrition value.  Since you are eliminating the yolk, you lose a lot of the “bad” stuff that people complain about with eggs.  Cholesterol and fat go to zero in egg whites, down from 211 milligrams and 5 grams, respectively, PER EGG.  Three eggs in the omelette equate to a mere 51 calories, zero grams of fat, and 11 grams of protein.  The cheese adds another 70 calories per ounce, as well as 5 grams of fat and 5 grams of protein.  The ham, nice and lean, adds 122 calories, 2 grams of fat, and 19 grams of protein.  So, in total, the omelette has about 243 calories, 7 grams of fat, and 34 grams of protein.  It’s a great way to get your brain moving without throwing your diet off track!

Egg White Omelette with Ham and Goat Cheese

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1/4 C ham, finely diced
  • 1 oz herbed goat cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 t butter

Instructions

  1. Whip the egg whites with a whisk until slightly frothy. Add a dash of salt and pepper. Whisk again.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the butter and melt.
  3. When the butter is completely melted, pour the egg whites in and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Cover and let cook for a minute or two, until the top starts to set up.
  4. Swirl the pan to release the egg whites. To half of the omelette, add the ham and cheese, sprinkled to cover the full half. Cover and cook another minute to heat the ham and let the cheese soften.
  5. With a spatula, flip the plain side of the omelette over the filling. Remove to a plate and serve with fresh fruits and toast.

Egg White Omelette: Change It Up!

If you don’t have any leftover ham, or even deli ham, use what you have!  I’ve used leftover taco meat, roasted chicken or turkey, even salmon in this and it all is scrumptious!  I especially love the leftover salmon with the herbed goat cheese.  It’s almost like a bagel without all the carbs!  Get creative and see what combinations you love.  The ideas are endless!
