    For me....a dollop of sour cream and salsa on top. Sounds weird I know but I love this on my omelettes or scrambled eggs.

    So, I'm trying to come up with an omelette that's under 300-350 calories. (Please don't say "why 300-350 calories?" I have my reasons, but I don't want to argue!)

    At the moment, I have:
    Two large eggs - 187 calories
    1/8 cup shredded cheese - 43
    1/2 cup mushrooms - 10 calories

    For a total of 240 calories.

    What else can I add to make it flavorful/filling for 60-110 more calories? No dessert/fruit stuff, please!

    I would love that with some onion and make green pepper.

    The Insanity nutrition guide has a recipe in it for a 300-350 calorie omelet. 2 whole eggs + 3 egg whites + a cup spinach leaves + 1/4 cup feta cheese.

    Sorry, but I really want to know why. It's such a bizarre request given that OP clearly knows how to count and how to cook.

    Two servings of Egg Beaters=60 calories
    one serving of Black Forest Ham=60 calories
    1/4 cup chopped spinach=5 calories
    1/4 cup diced tomatoe=20ish calories
    1/4 cup sliced mushrooms=20ish calories
    diced onions, peppers=20ish calories
    1/8 cup shredded cheese=50ish calories

    Omelets under 300 calories? Yeah totally doable!

    yes! avocado and salsa. or bell peppers and cream cheese. or whatever meat you love. Lots of ways to dress it up. You could try sneaking a peak at a breakfast-restaurant menu to see what types of omelettes they offer.

    I just made an eggcellent little omelet.

    Butter, eggs, and chives.

    Cooked in the french style, and then a little lawry's season salt on the top once on the plate. Because 'merica.

    Not weird at all, me and my husband both will eat omelettes that way, though now we both use a dollop of Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream, mainly because we generally only have Greek Yogurt on hand nowadays. :)

    Green onions hands down is my favorite addition to omelets for flavor. We also add turkey bacon to ours and bell pepper. The turkey bacon is yummy- not as yummy as real bacon but much lower in sodium, fat and calories. Sometimes I change it up and do a spinach, mushroom and feta omelet.

    I use 3 egg whites and usually saute up either kale or spinach and add that to the egg whites along with 1/4 cup of feta cheese. Sometimes I'll add sauteed mushrooms or sprinkle some franks hot sauce on the top. One of the best omelets to eat and loaded with proteins!!
