I don’t like the word breakfast. One, because often times my “fast” extends to lunch hours and if you eat breakfast past noon, what is it called? Whatever it may be, my “meal 1” usually consists of eggs…but eggs can get old. Nonetheless, as a cheap, high protein source they are hard to beat… (no pun intended). So I eat them and think about pizza… However, to succeed in dieting sometimes you need to give into your cravings, and that’s what we’re going to do with today’s recipe- The Chicken Bacon Ranch Omelette. Try this today! This protein rich recipe also works well for “Meal 2” and so on…
- 1 Large Egg
- 2 Egg Whites
- 2 Slices Turkey Bacon
- 2oz of Chicken
- 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons Tomato (Chopped)
- 1 Clove of Garlic (Minced)
- 2 Tablespoon Fat-Free Ranch Dressing
- 1/4 Cup of Fat-Free Cheddar Cheese
- 1/4 Cup of Fat-Free Mozzarella
- Salt and Pepper (To Taste)
- 2 Tablespoons of Greek Yogurt
- 1 Quarter of Avocado
Cook the bacon until crispy and crumble it. In a small bowl, add the bacon, chicken, and the ranch dressing and mix well until everything is coated. Set aside. In another small bowl, beat the eggs well with a fork, season with salt and pepper and set aside. In a small ‘omelet-sized’ pan over medium heat, spray butter, add the garlic and onion, and cook until slightly tender, about 2-3 minutes. Next, pour the beaten eggs into the pan with the cooked garlic and onion, and move the pan around until the eggs are evenly spread out. Carefully flip the omelet once it is firm and slightly puffy. Add the bacon, chicken and ranch mixture on one side of the omelet, sprinkle with the cheese and then add the diced tomatoes. Turn off the heat and cover with a lid until the cheese has melted. Fold it in half using a spatula and slide it onto a plate. You can top it off with avocado and Greek yogurt or fat-free sour cream for that added creamy goodness, and enjoy!
