Spinach and Tomato Omelet Sandwich

Spinach and Tomato Omelet Sandwich
Panera Bread Recipe

Serves 1

2 teaspoons salted butter
2 slices Ciabatta
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 small Roma tomato, cored and cut into ¼ inch dice
15 spinach leaves, stemmed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated (optional)

Preheat oven or grill to 400°F Spread the butter on each slice of bread and toast on baking sheets in the oven, or grill, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.

In an omelet pan or small saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat until it shimmers. SautĂ© the garlic until it turns light brown and then add the tomato and spinach. Season with salt and pepper. Cook spinach for 1 to 2 minutes, until wilted a little but not totally limp. Add the eggs and cook until they are solid enough to flip, about 2 to 3 minutes. Once flipped, add the cheese and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute more. Place omelet on toasted bread. Slice and top with other slice.
