You can technically use frozen spinach for this omelette or you can use fresh. We like to use fresh from a bag of salad greens. When using frozen you won’t. need to chop the spinach since frozen is chopped already, but with fresh you’ll want to chop the spinach at least a little.

SAVE SOME FOR LATER
Okay, you may want to sit down for this. We don’t know how to tell you, so we’ll just come right out and say it: don’t save your leftover omelet. We know this is hard for you to hear, but omelets really don’t reheat well, and you should enjoy them while they’re fresh. Leftover eggs are never nearly as good as fresh and since this recipe is so quick, you can always make a new one the next morning.
$: The most expensive part of this recipe is the feta and spinach, which is easy to find and cost-effective. Everything else on the list of ingredients is probably already on your weekly shopping list because you’re a person with great taste and everyone knows it.
- 1,000 watts or higher: Higher wattage, lower cook time. Our microwave is about 1,250 watts, but if you have one with about 1,000 watts you will want to cook for 1:12, then check it, and add another 30 seconds if needed.
- 700 watts: Microwaves under about 900 don’t heat things evenly or consistently, so don’t go anywhere while you’re cooking. Cook the omelet for about 1:43, then add another minute as needed.
