Omelets in diners can be high-calorie and high-fat. Fresh Garden Omelet trims the calories and fat by reducing the amount of milk and eggs (generally 2 to 3 large eggs per traditional omelet), and by trading whole milk for low-fat cottage cheese. Reducing the amount of salt and adding fresh vegetables, this madeover omelet makes for a lighter breakfast.
