    chopped red sweet pepper
  • 2   tablespoons 
    finely chopped onion
  • 1   tablespoon 
    cider vinegar
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    black pepper

    Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4   
    eggs or 1 cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
  •  Dash 
    salt
  •  Dash 
    ground red pepper
  • 1/4  cup 
    shredded sharp cheddar cheese (1 ounce)
  • 1   tablespoon 
    snipped fresh chives, Italian flat-leaf parsley, or chervil
  • 1   cup 
    spinach leaves
Directions
1.
For the red pepper relish, in a small bowl combine red sweet pepper, onion, cider vinegar, and black pepper. Set aside.
2.
Coat an unheated 8-inch nonstick skillet with flared sides or a crepe pan with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat.
3.
In a large bowl combine eggs, salt, and ground red pepper. Using a rotary beater or wire whisk, beat the egg mixture until frothy. Pour into the prepared skillet; cook over medium heat. As eggs set, run a spatula around edge of skillet, lifting eggs so uncooked portion flows underneath.
4.
When eggs are set but still shiny, sprinkle with cheese and chives. Top with 3/4 cup of the spinach and 2 tablespoons of the relish. Fold one side of omelet partially over filling. Top with the remaining spinach and 1 tablespoon of the relish. (Reserve the remaining relish for another use.) Cut the omelet in half. Transfer to two dinner plates. Makes 2 servings.
