Tomato Mozzarella Egg White Omelet


Low Carb Tomato Mozzarella Egg White Omelet

A quick and easy breakfast made with tomatoes, egg whites, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese. Lots of flavor, low in carbs and takes just minutes to make. A perfect breakfast for Meatless Mondays!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine involved lots of family fun, Scooby Doo live in Manhattan, a shopping spree at the mall with my teen, a play date at Bounce-U and celebrating my brother's birthday. Oh yeah, and a trip to Target!

I seriously love Target! Spring is definitely in the air at Target, and I just wanted to redo my entire home with all the fabulous Spring color designs that are out. Instead, I just went with new flatwear, dishes and napkins from the Threshold coral collection in hope that Spring will arrive a little sooner this year, because I am soo over the cold.

Back to my breakfast, this is an excellent low carb breakfast idea, my husband said it reminded him of a breakfast pizza. Next time I make this, I'll top it with fresh basil and call it a margarita omelet. Enjoy!

  9. Just whipped this up, simple and delish! I didn't have any shredded mozzarella, so I tore up a piece of string cheese, and added spinach. I always keep a carton of egg whites on hand because they are so quick and easy.

  11. Beautiful! I've been craving tomatoes like I've been craving summer. I'm all about these veggie and egg combos lately. In fact, I just got done eating left over chicken from your enchilada recipe topped with sauteed onions and peppers and topped with two eggs cooked medium. It was yummy.

  13. If i double the egg whites how many points? And if I used two regular eggs- yolks included how many points?

  21. if you eliminate the oil and use a olive oil flavored cooking spray it would probably cut the points in half

  25. This was really good- I made it for breakfast this morning- I used Egg Beaters egg whites, and it turned out great! If I make it again tomorrow, I may add some spinach as other readers have suggested. Thanks!

  30. Gina, I've been using your recipes for about a year and half now -- they helped me reach my WW goal, and now they're helping me maintain my goal weight. Thanks! Just made this for lunch with one jumbo egg + one jumbo egg white. Delish.

  31. I made this for breakfast this morning and it was delish. But when I added the ingredients into My Fitness Pal - the calories and fat were almost double that what you posted. Mostly coming from the cheese. I used part-skim as noted in the recipe. Should have used reduced fat? It was still a healthy breakfast but I was bummed that mine came out to 244 calories.

  32. I just had my first egg white omelette at a restaurant and loved it! Can't wait to try this and make one at home :)

  33. This looks like it would make a great light dinner with some veggies on the side! Will definitely be trying it out this week.

  37. Yum! Adding this to my healthy breakfast rotation!

    Did you realize the photobucket images beneath your header are gone? I hate it when Photobucket does that.

  39. Gina,

    This was so yummy. I have also tried adding mushrooms, spinach, and onions to it as well. Very good and filling breakfast.

    Thanks so much for all of your recipes. I LOVE your site. You are helping me to feed my family very YUMMY recipes while still losing weight with Weight Watchers. I hit 50 pounds lost today and some of that is thanks to you!!! Please keep on adding recipes. We really appreciate you.

  40. Very good. I make egg whites in the microwave almost daily so this was a nice change.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Only thing is when I made this it totally fell apart when I tried to fold it, not sure if that's normal. Still tasted great, which is what matters. I used regular tomatoes not grape tomatoes for this.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I made this for breakfast this morning. Really, really good. I added some asparagus to it. As a Weight Watcher I wanted to bulk it up a bit. Delicious.

  43. I don't often comment, but I had to let you know how much I love this dish!! I have made it twice now using one large egg and one egg white (going for an extra protein kick). :) It's delicious, filling, and super simple and quick to make. Thanks, Gina!

  48. Love this! I made it for dinner with a spinich salad on the side. I added basil and it was delish!!! Love this blog!!!

  49. Mine burned on the bottom and didn't set on the top :( Perhaps my heat was too high? I kept it pretty low the whole time, though... guess I'll just have to toss this one since part of it didn't cook :(

  50. This is delicious --- it has been my go-to breakfast this summer when I'm working at home and have time to cook. I add fresh spinach if I have it. It's really good with whole eggs too. I usually flip it over so the cheese gets a little brown and extra gooey.

    I'm so happy I found your blog this summer. It's been so helpful when making meal plans.
