Drying out the bread in the toaster allows
it to soak up the egg mixture. Don’t skip the step, you want the bread
to be dry and firm but not really browned

STEP #5 Turn off the heat. Sprinkle omelet with cheese
And let it melt about 20 seconds. Use the rubber
Spatula To carefully fold the omelet in half and
And slide it onto a plate.
Facts About Orange Juice…It’s better to eat an orange than to drink orange juice. Why? Because the juice has no fiber unless it is added back in processing.
Orange Juice is high in Vitamin C which helps your immune system-that means it fights colds.
Enriched or Fortified— What’s the difference?
Enriching foods means nutrients are added back that were taken out during processing. For example, flour is enriched because niacin, riboflavin, folic acid, thiamine, and iron are added back. These micronutrients are found naturally in wheat. Fortifying foods means adding nutrients that were never there. Orange juice is sold with added calcium and Vitamin D. Milk has Vitamins A & D added.
