    Are these as vile tasting as they sound? I have always liked "ordinary" omelettes but have never ventured as far as an egg white one. What are your favourite ingredients to put them in them, with point values of course? This could open up a whole new world for me :)

    Hiya Nic, thanks for your very quick reply. I suppose with the one full egg it doesnt seem as bad and if I point that in then it would be fine. What does it taste like? And don't be saying it's lovely just because you were the one that cooked it :D

    If it is as good as you say it is then maybe you can post me one as I live in the north and I could just heat it up in the microwave :D

    I do exactly the same, one full egg and two egg white! Yummy!! :D
    They are so nice when you pack them full of mushrooms and onion, perhaps with a sprinkling of low fat cheese (depending on how many points you have to spend!)

    If i only use 1 or 2 sprays I don't point it, maybe that's wrong but it hasn't done me any harm so far

    I've actually just had an egg white omelette for my breakie and can honestly say you can hardly taste the difference
    I used 4 egg whites and grated in a mini babybel for 1 point sprayed omlette pan with fry light added some mushroom and tomato
    gave the egg whites a little whisk so they got fluffy and added the babybel the only thing i found was it would have burnt on the bottom before the top was cooked but i remedy this by cooking the underneath in the pan and then just flashing it under the grill so the top could finish off and hey presto beakie for 1 point

    I can honestly say OBID, that by adding the babybel I couln't tell the egg yolk was missing, I was well impressed with the result am now thinking about other fillings I could try out

    I had the omlette for lunch. Was ok but i found it quite sikly. Might just be me tho but i would prefer it as a plain or maybe just mushroom omlette personally. Thanks for that though. It's gone in my recipe book.
