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.

        Unfortunately, the recipe at the bottom of the page is for a different recipe (mushrooms and carmelized onions).
