This dish is packed with protein and flavor.

This delicious spinach omelet recipe is ready in just 10 minutes for a nutritious breakfast. Eggs and cheese help pack it with protein, while fresh dill boosts its flavor.

10-Minute Spinach Omelet

Serves 1

Active Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup spinach

2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese

1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill

1. Whisk eggs in a small bowl. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat, tilting to coat the pan. Pour in the eggs and immediately stir with a rubber spatula or fork for 5 to 10 seconds.

2. Push the cooked portions at the edge toward the center, tilting the pan to allow uncooked egg to fill in around the edges. Continue to cook until almost set and the bottom is light golden, about 1 minute total.

3. Remove from heat and top half the omelet with spinach and cheddar. Fold the other half over the filling. Slide the omelet onto a plate and sprinkle dill on top.

If there’ s one thing that my colleagues and I here at Kitchn know, it’ s that our readers absolutely love themselves some potatoes— baked, boiled, mashed, skillet-fried, you name it. As a result, we’ ve amassed hundreds of recipes involving potatoes in some shape or form over the years. But is anyone really surprised?

These garlic mashed potatoes are extra creamy, thanks to the addition of both butter and buttermilk. To prevent the potatoes from getting gummy, be sure not to overmix them in Step 2.

Mashed vegetables tend to get cold easily; keep all tools — the ricer and bowl — warm by running under hot water before using.

If you have your butcher cut up the bird for you, ask for the neck, backbone, wing tips, and giblets, along with a few extra wings for making stock. Also, make sure to have an accurate meat thermometer to test the temperatures of the different pieces. I’ve also included the recipe for my favorite make-ahead turkey gravy.

Simmering pasta directly in the sauce is really quite simple — it’s just a matter of getting the ratio of dry pasta to liquid right. Once you figure this out, you can tinker around with adding protein (seared, mild and moist Steelhead trout in this case) and finish the dish with whatever cheese, fresh herbs, and flavorings you see fit (Parmesan, parsley, and lemon here).

The results are a one-pan meal that could easily fetch $16 or more in a restaurant, but costs about a third of that when done at home.

Native American chefs engage the holiday on their own terms -- making it about ingredients and foodways indigenous to North America, not the typical fare on our tables today. Learn more about the complicated food history of Thanksgiving.
