Photo by Ken Burris. With flavors reminiscent of the classic Greek spanakopita, this easy omelet is just right for a light dinner or brunch. Frozen leaf spinach makes it ultra-quick.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup cooked Spinach
8 large Eggs
1 cup crumbled Feta cheese (4 ounces)
4 Scallions, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons chopped fresh Dill
Freshly ground Pepper to taste
4 teaspoons extra-virgin Olive oil

Preparation:

1. Squeeze spinach to remove any excess water. Blend eggs with a fork in a medium bowl. Add feta, scallions, dill, pepper and the spinach; mix gently with a rubber spatula.
2. Set a rack about 4 inches from the heat source; preheat the broiler.
3. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in half of the egg mixture and tilt to distribute evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the bottom is light golden, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, 3 to 4 minutes. Place the pan under the broiler and cook until the top is set, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Slide the omelet onto a platter and cut into wedges.
4. Repeat steps 2 and three for the remaining half of the ingredients.
