Number of servings

Serve 6


  1. 1/2 cup of medium-strength flour
  2. 1 cup of non-fat milk
  3. 1 tablespoon of margarine without trans fat
  4. 1 cup egg replaces
  5. 1 cup of chopped smoked ham
  6. 1 onion, chopped
  7. 1 1/2 cup finely chopped low-fat Swiss cheese (about 6 ounces)
  8. Decorate 1 cup of fresh spinach, chopped, spinach leaves


Preheat the oven to 350F. Line the jelly rolls (15 1/2 inch x 10 1/2 inch) with aluminum foil. Apply generously with a cooking spray.

In a large bowl, place flour, milk, margarine, and egg replaces. Stir until well mixed. Pour the flour mixture into a jelly roll and sprinkle with ham and onions.

Bake for about 15 minutes until the eggs harden. Immediately sprinkle with cheese and spinach. Start with the narrow end and use the foil to lift and roll the omelet. Cut into 6 equal slices, each about 2 1/2 inches long.

Place additional spinach leaves on the serving plate. Add an omelet and enjoy immediately.
