Eggs are one of my favorite ingredients to use. The versatility of them is astounding, from breakfast to lunch and dinner, and even dessert. There’s so many uses for these things, but sometimes we just have to keep it simple and let the delicious taste speak for itself.
Today, I thought that you guys might enjoy a delicious and simple omlette made of goats cheese, spinach, and onions. The goats cheese brings a fantastic tartness to the entire omelette, while the onions cut through that tartness to balance out the flavors with a sweet, delicious ending. The spring onions, while not necessary, bring a great tanginess and fresh feel to the entire dish, playing off the earthy flavors of the spinach. All together, each bite is a wonderful mixture of both textures (crunch, smooth, and cheesy) and flavors.
Give this one a try, mix up the different ingredients inside (hint: roasted tomato and pine nuts with goats cheese), and enjoy the delicious omelettes you can create! Remember that when cooking an omelette, you don’t want to mess around with it too much. Keeping the pan on a lower heat while doing this will allow for the bottom to cook through, while leaving the top a little runny. That will be great for when you close the omelette and all of the steam will cook the insides to perfection.

Yields 1 Spinach, Onion, and Goat Cheese Omelette
- ¼ medium onion
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups spinach
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 ounce goat cheese
- 1 medium spring onion
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. Spread out 2 tbsp. butter into a hot pan using your hands.
2. Cut 1/4 onion while the butter begins to brown. Slice into long strips.
3. Once butter begins to brown, add onion to the pan and allow the onion to caramelize.
4. Once onion is translucent, add 1 large handful of spinach (~2 cups) to the pan. Let this cook down and wilt. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
5. Remove the spinach and onion mixture from the pan and set aside. In a small measuring container, crack 3 large eggs.
6. Add 2 tbsp. heavy cream, salt, and pepper to the eggs. Mix this together well.
7. Heat the pan to medium-low heat (it should already be hot). Add your egg mixture to then pan and allow it to cook.
8. Once the edges begin to set, add the onion and spinach mixture back into half of the omelette. Crumble 1 oz. goat cheese over the top of the spinach and season with more salt and pepper if you’d like.
9. Fold the omelette in half once the top begins to set and serve! Garnish with spring onions if you’d like.
