Spinach Omelet ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Spinach Omelet

Cheesy scrambled eggs with spinach , simple but yummy. Easily customized to what you like or have on hand.

This week’s is a recipe that I’ve been making for Mike and Sean for the past week or so. They are really enjoying it. You can pretty much change this to suit what you like. It is extremely versatile. Of course, since this is a spinach omelet, we are using spinach. I know, shocking, right? :D My guys like some green onion in theirs as well. We have also added some cooked chicken breast and cheese at times.

Start by cracking three eggs into a medium-size bowl. I use my 4-cup measuring cup.

Spinach Omelet ~ Lifeofjoy.meNext add about one tablespoon of heavy whipping cream (or evaporated milk or just regular milk or even half and half).

Spinach Omelet ~ Lifeofjoy.meI use a fork and combine these a bit. Next, cut the green onion or use scissors to snip it right into the measuring cup or bowl of beaten eggs.

Spinach Omelet ~ Lifeofjoy.meI really shouldn’t have used the green cutting board! It really gave these pictures an odd look!

Next grab a handful of spinach and chop it into thin pieces.

Spinach Omelet ~ Lifeofjoy.meAdd both of these to the eggs and combine. :) You can add a bit of shredded cheese if you like. I have found that I really don’t taste the cheese mixed into the eggs and opt to just melt it on top for mine.

I like to stir together the two oils as they melt, before I pour in my omelet mixture. When the oil is hot, add the egg mixture and if your add-ins get all lumped together, spread them out a bit.

Spinach Omelet ~ Lifeofjoy.meAs it starts to solidify, mix it up a bit, so all the egg gets thoroughly cooked.

Spinach Omelet ~ Lifeofjoy.meMy family likes theirs a little bit crispy. (I know real omelets are thinner and rolled but I don’t know what else to call these delicious eggs.) When one side is done to your liking and is nearly cooked through, flip to finish cooking the other side. This is when I add my cheese. We are using a mild cheddar here but use what you like.

Spinach Omelet ~ Lifeofjoy.meServe as soon as the cheese is melted.

Creamy coleslaw with just the right amount of liquid and tang but won’t make you pucker.

Coleslaw ~lifeofjoy.meColeslaw is one of those things that I didn’t make much of in the past. In the last few months, I have learned that this is one of Mike’s favorite side dishes, especially when paired with hamburgers or hot dogs and baked beans.

I have bought more cabbage in the last few years, since learning to make egg rolls than I had in many of the previous years added together. But that means that I frequently have cabbage in my refrigerator. Making egg rolls takes a bit of time, so I procrastinate making them. One day I needed a quick side dish and decided to make coleslaw. I didn’t use any measurements, just did like I saw my mom do.

The other day when made this, I measured ingredients before adding them to the bowl so I could share it here.

I started by weighing the piece of cabbage that I had left from other uses. I shredded the 1-pound cabbage on the large grater. I used to slice it on my mandolin but found I preferred a more chopped texture. (Don’t grate the core.)

Coleslaw ~ Lifeofjoy.meGrate a medium carrot.

Coleslaw ~ Lifeofjoy.meAdd 1/2 cup mayo. (I’d prefer to use Miracle Whip because then I probably wouldn’t need the vinegar and sugar but Michael prefers mayonnaise, so that is what I used.)

Coleslaw ~ Lifeofjoy.meNext include 4 teaspoons – 2 tablespoons white vinegar (not apple cider vinegar), 1 -2 tablespoons sugar (or sugar substitute), and 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream or evaporated canned milk and combine. I almost forgot to take a picture of the finished dish. We ate half of it. :)

Coleslaw ~ Lifeofjoy.meThis is the first time I have made this and it didn’t turn out soupy. :)



  • 1 pound cabbage
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons - 2 Tablespoons vinegar
  • 1-2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2-3 Tablespoons heavy cream or evaporated canned milk


  1. Shred cabbage and carrot on large holes of box grater.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and combine well.


Until next time, God bless,
