Helpful Hints
  • Sautéed onion will appear transparent but not brown when cooked.

  • Compare sodium content on bottled or canned red peppers.

  • Cook the omelet evenly by shaking the pan and gently lifting edges to allow uncooked egg to run underneath cooked egg.

  • Reduce fat and cholesterol by using nonstick cooking spray or a nonstick skillet, trans-fat free margarine instead of butter and liquid low cholesterol egg substitute instead of whole eggs.
