Time estimates

Prep time: 10 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

Cooking directions

  1. Combine eggs in mixing bowl. Lightly beat until eggs have an even consistency, about 1 minute.
  2. Add light coating of oil in heavy-bottomed 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat about 1 minute. Pour eggs into center of skillet. Slowly roll egg batter from side to side about 2 minutes. As edges begin to brown and eggs firm up, reduce heat and cover.
  3. Melt butter in heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms. As mushrooms begin to brown add spinach. Stir. Remove from heat when spinach wilts, becoming bright green, about 2 minutes.
  4. Plate omelet. Add cooked vegetables to omelet. Top veggies with crumbled feta and season to taste. Fold and serve.
