    Funny Face Omelet

    Ingredients

    • 1 egg, or 1/4 cup egg substitute
    • 1/2 tablespoon water
    • 1/8 cup reduced-fat cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
    • canola cooking spray
    • reduced-fat pepperoni slices
    • lean ham slices
    • zucchini slices
    • tomato slices
    • green pepper slices
    • sliced olives
    • avocado slices

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Cut your toppings into different shapes using a plastic knife, and put them in a shallow bowl or plate. The cut shapes will be used later to make eyes, eyebrows, a nose, and a mouth.
    Step 2
    Crack the egg into a medium bowl. Add 1/2 tablespoon water and blend well with a whisk or fork.
    Step 3
     An adult can begin heating a small, 8-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-low heat. After 2 minutes of warming, coat the bottom of the pan with canola cooking spray.
    Step 4
     Pour the beaten egg into the frying pan, set the timer to 1 minute and 30 seconds, and cover the pan. After the timer goes off, remove the lid. If the top looks cooked, an adult can slide the omelet.
    Step 5
     Use the different-shaped toppings to make eyes, eyebrows, a nose, and a mouth on the top side of the omelet. Use grated cheese to add hair around the edge of the face. Microwave on HIGH for 30-60 seconds to heat the meat and vegetables and melt the cheese (if desired).
