No Explode Microwave Omelet
1 cup egg whites
1/2 - 1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp Mrs Dash - any flavor
* 2 Tbsp diced green chili - optional
* 2 Tbsp salsa - optional
1 Ziploc Steamer Bag
Open up the steamer bag and add the egg whites, veggies, Mrs Dash, and any optional ingredients.
Seal and shake lightly.
Microwave on high (labeled side up) for 5 minutes. Allow to rest 1 minute, then check for doneness (no runny egg stuff). If needed, microwave 1-2 minutes more.
Open bag (carefully! Steam is hot!), and slide omelet out onto a plate.
TIPS: Add black beans for a boost of complex carbs! Top with 1 Tbsp crumbled reduced-fat Feta or Cheddar. Other ingredients I've successfully omelet-ified are asparagus, broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, olives, cauliflower, zucchini, yellow squash, chicken sausage (precooked), chicken/turkey (precooked), ground beef (precooked)... huh - what haven't I put in an omelet? ;-)
