3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/4 onion, diced small
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups spinach, cleaned and chopped
2 chicken meatballs, chopped into half-inch cubes
3 farm fresh eggs
Salt and pepper
A splash of milk
Parm cheese


Over medium heat, pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a pan.
Add onions and caramelize. (You must have patience here, this is where the magic happens, do not let them burn!)

Once onions have the perfect color, add garlic, stir to incorporate, and cook for 30 seconds. Add spinach and meatballs, season with salt, and mix everything around a bit to let spinach, onions and garlic incorporate, and the spinach cooks down. Watch closely so that garlic does not burn.

Break eggs into a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper. Add milk and whisk.

In another nonstick pan, pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Pour in eggs, let them form to the shape of the pan. Once eggs are almost cooked through, add the spinach and meatball mixture to the middle of the omelet and grate some parm cheese over the top. Fold omelet in half by flipping one side of the omelet over the other side. Cook for another minute to set and serve.
