Simple yet delicious, this omelet is elegant enough for dinner, and easy enough for breakfast or brunch. Serve with a side of lemony greens to make the meal complete!


  • 3 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 8 large eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 oz. Parmesan, finely grated
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 3 oz. baby spinach

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet on medium. Add onion and sauté until tender, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, 1 tablespoon water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Return skillet to medium and add butter. Add eggs and cook, stirring constantly with rubber spatula, until eggs are partially set. Turn heat to low and cover pan tightly, cooking until eggs are just set, 4 to 5 minutes. Top with Parmesan and cooked onion; fold in half.

In a medium bowl, whisk together lemon juice and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Toss spinach with vinaigrette and serve with omelet.
