Spinach Omelet Roll
Breakfast can be fun with some creative eggs. This is a very old photo…sorry
What You’ll Need
12 Eggs separated (yolks in one bowl whites in another)
1 Cup milk
2 10 oz packages frozen spinach (chopped)
1 Cup swiss cheese (shredded)
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp all purpose white flour
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Black pepper
1 Cup salsa (your favorite) or fresh tomatoes and onions (chopped)
Non stick cooking Spray
15 ½ x 10 ½ Jelly Roll Pan
1 Medium mixing bowl
1 Large mixing bowl
Before You Start: Line jelly roll pan with wax paper and spray with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350°.
Let’s Make It! In a saucepan over medium high melt butter, and add flour, milk, salt and pepper, whisk well to avoid lumps. Cook until thickened. Reduce heat to low. In a medium mixing bowl whisk egg yolks well.
Slowly add egg yolks to saucepan mixture and increase heat to medium low, stir often and cook until thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 15 minutes. In a large bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula gently fold the cooled yolk mixture into the egg whites.
Spread into jelly roll pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Prepare spinach according to package directions and drain well. Place a clean cloth towel onto your counter and invert the omelet onto the towel. Peel away the wax paper. Spread spinach evenly over the omelet, sprinkle evenly with cheese, and roll up. Cut into slices and serve with salsa( or chopped tomatoes and onions) on the side.
**Katie’s Tid Bits** Need it quicker? Use leftover spinach. Make and omelet in your skillet as usual, spoon in leftover spinach, (cooked bacon if you don’t want it meatless) and cheese. Fold and eat.
