Greek Omelette with Artichokes and Feta Cheese
Artichokes and feta cheese are popular choices for recipes used in Greek cooking. I’ve used them in this recipe to make a tangy and tasty omelette.
I always like to slim down recipes where I can. For this breakfast choice. I have lightened the recipe a bit by using egg whites in place of one egg. If you want a more hearty one, three eggs also could be used.
You can also use2 % milk instead of cream to slim it down just a bit more.
Serve the Greek omelette with fresh fruit for a satisfying start to your day.
