Smashed Avocado & Egg White Omelet

Smashed Avocado & Egg White Omelet- healthy & delicious breakfast on sweettreatsmore.com-6This week, I’m detoxing.  Healthy. Clean. Greasy, Tex-Mex free & sugar free foods.  (Udi’s Gluten Free Snicker Doodle Cookies do not count!)  Because the only bad thing about attending a conference for food bloggers is the amount of food consumed in just two and a half days.  Oyyy my scale was not my friend Monday morning.  

BUT! I had so much fun, met some amazing people and came home feeling inspired and excited about baking and cooking, photographing, writing about and sharing food with you.  And really, it felt like a super fun girls trip.  Can we go back next month please? 

Smashed Avocado & Egg White Omelet(2)Probably not.  On to the eggs.  Brett and I have been on an egg kick for the last month or so.  They’re our go-to when we don’t have anyting else to eat (meaning I didn’t plan dinner), which seems to happening more frequently lately.  I blame summer.  

Egg white omelets are the latest fav, and I love this one stuffed with cheese and smashed avocado.  Using avocado, you replace the egg yolks with a much healthier (and tastier) source of fat.  I mean c’mon, it’s avocado.  So I might use a little more than necessary:)

So feel free to do the same…

Smashed Avocado & Egg White Omelet
Print
Ingredients
  1. 4 egg whites
  2. 2-3 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese
  3. 1/4 of a ripe avocado, smashed
  4. salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Beat egg whites together in a bowl, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Place a non-stick omelet pan over medium-low heat. (If you don't have a non-stick omelet pan, coat a small cooking pan with a dab of coconut oil)
  3. Pour egg mixture into the pan and as the egg starts to firm up, use a small rubber spatula to gently pull the edges away from the pan. Starting at the edge and working to the middle until you can shake the pan and the egg easily slides around.
  4. Flip the egg (easier said than done). Use a large spatula to flip it or go for the old air flip (as my husband does).
  5. Once flipped, spread smashed avocado all over one half of the cooked side. Top with cheese. Fold edge over to cover the cheese and avocado. Remove from heat, season with more salt and pepper if needed, and sever with salsa.

    Yum! I know what you mean about the detox after BlogHer. I’ve been trying. Trying being the keyword, I’ve been pretty unsuccessful ;-) I never really make omelets, to be honest I’m kind of intimidated by them. I can never get them to cook just right. Maybe I should try them again. And this one is top on my list since it’s got avocado. And like you said, it’s avocado.

    I’m so glad I was able to see you again at BlogHer!!! My scale hates me right now too…way too much food in such a short amount of time. I need more eggs and avocados too. What a great idea to pair the two together. Yum!!!!

    Just started a ‘less carb, less sugar’ eating lifestyle and I believe this is on my menu for tomorrow’s breakfast. If only I can master the flipping of the egg!

    Yay my first comment on your site! Anyway, first of all last weekend did totally feel like a girl’s trip. I loved getting to know you — I am still recovering from our food indulgences. But recipes like this will be helpful. Hope your half marathon was amazing! xoxo

    Sounds bomb, but I’lll use whole eggs… the vitamin K in the egg yolk is good for your teeth, as well as really tasty, so I’ll keep it. Your recipe will inspire me. :) Thanks for sharing!
