IngredientsNumber of servings: Serves 2

  • 1 individual serving package broccoli with cheese sauce (1/2 cup), microwaved according to directions
  • 6 egg whites or 1 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill weed (dried)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons heart-healthy butter-flavored spread or margarine
  • 2 slices 1% or 2% cheddar or American cheese

    How to make it 


  • 1

    Strain most of the sauce from the broccoli into a medium bowl. To the sauce, add the egg whites, dill weed, salt and pepper, and beat until combined.


  • 2

    Return the broccoli to the plastic container and stir in the Worcestershire sauce.


  • 3

    Melt the butter spread in a 10-inch nonstick skillet to coat the bottom. When hot, add the egg mixture. Cook over medium-high heat, lifting the edges with a spatula while tilting the skillet to let the uncooked portion flow underneath. When the top is only slightly runny, slide the omelet onto a dinner plate, then return it to the skillet, flipping it over to cook the top.


  • 4

    Lay the slices of cheese in the center on the top of the omelet and top with broccoli. Fold the omelet in half over the filling. Slide onto a plate, and cut in two.
