2 Pieces351 cals

Today we’re combining 2 really easy and cheap sources of protein! They might not sound like they go together but after this Easy Cheese Tuna Omelette recipe, you’ll never think that again.

Start this one by mixing together 5 large eggs and 1/4 cup of milk or milk substitute. Once mixed, take out your favorite stovetop pan, turn your burner on medium heat, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and pour your eggs in.

Sprinkle on a little black pepper!

Tuna Omelette Time

Take out a bowl for your tuna mix. Into that bowl add 1 can of drained tuna, 4 tablespoons of fat free cream cheese, 1/2 cup of your choice cheese, 6 tablespoons of fat free sour cream, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon of dill weed, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of minced garlic.

Mix those together until it’s smooth.

When your eggs move together (shake your pan a little, they should slide) go ahead and spoon your tuna mix onto one side of it.

Fold over your tuna omelette after you’ve spooned it all on and throw your cover on the pan. Let that cook for a few minutes!

There is your omelette and yes, it tastes just as good as it looks. A couple things you could do to change this one up?

3 Tips

  1. Add in some chopped up vegetables!
  2. Toss in some chili sauce to add a little heat to it!
  3. Use other spices or herbs!
