Often, egg white omelets are bland since the yolk brings flavor to this breakfast dish. This recipe, however, is packed full of Greek goodness, including feta cheese, Kalamata olives, sweet cherry tomatoes, and fresh chopped spinach, making it healthy and flavorful. In addition, it is easy to make and versatile; feel free to change or add whatever fillings you like depending on your preferences or what you have in the fridge.

Recipe Variations

  • Chorizo Egg White Omelet: Replace the feta with a Mexican cheese blend, and add crumbled cooked chorizo instead of the Kalamata olives. Top with diced avocado, salsa, and sour cream.
  • Veggie: Add sautéed mushrooms and onions, and feel free to swap out the feta for a shredded cheese or soft cheese of your preference. Eliminate the olives if you like.
  • Denver Omelet: Use chopped red and green peppers, chopped onions, diced ham, and shredded cheddar instead of the feta and vegetables in the Greek omelet.
  • Mushroom and Goat Cheese: Sauté some mushrooms with a little chopped garlic. To a plain egg white omelet, add the cooked mushrooms with crumbled goat cheese and sautéed spinach.
  • Turkey Sausage and Cheese: Add crumbled cooked turkey sausage and replace the feta with shredded cheese.


  • Cook the omelet on very low heat. This will prevent it from browning and will create a delicate texture.
  • Make sure to use a rubber spatula when cooking the omelet. Metal spatulas will break the egg whites and make it hard to neatly transfer to the plate.
  • If you are adding meats to the omelet, warm them first. If you add them at the end, they won't be heated through in the time it takes to cook the omelet.
