Berry Omelet

We just got back last night from the Great Wolf Lodge water park in Mason, Ohio.  This kids had a blast but are definitely worn out.

Since we returned late, we didn't have anything for dinner last night except eggs.  So when I woke up this morning, the thought of eating eggs again was not appealing.  I decided to experiment and what I ended up with was this yummy berry omelet.

Now I apologize in advance because I don't measure but I will give you some measurements here.  It is very forgiving so don't fear if you fudge it a little.

Berry Omelet

2 eggs (whisked)
small pinch of ginger
small pinch of nutmeg
medium pinch of cinnamon
1 TBSP of almond flour (could probably omit but I like the nutty flavor)
pinch of salt
1 TBSP of milk of choice
coconut oil to fry in
frozen blueberries
frozen strawberries
2 TBSP water
1 TBSP goat cheese (or more if you like!)

Preheat an omelet pan with coconut oil over medium heat for about 3 minutes (you want it hot).  Whisk together first 7 ingredients. I whisked the eggs alone first.  Add to hot pan and cook as you would an omelet.   I pulled up the sides and let the liquid seep under.  Once set, flip it over to get the other side for about 3 minutes more.  Flip onto a plate.

Meanwhile, heat water in a pan over high heat to boil.  Add berries.  Once boiling, reduce to medium low and cook until thickened, about 15 minutes.  I mashed my strawberries with a fork once they softened.

Add goats milk to flattened omelet.  Pour most of berries over the cheese.  Fold in half and top with remaining berries.  Enjoy while warm!

*This is only sweetened by the berries since I'm watching my morning carb intake.  Feel free to add syrup or honey if you need it sweeter.
