Egg white Omelet
When watching your weight, an egg-white omelet is a perfect food to give you energy and not too many calories.
✓ 2 egg whites
✓ ¼ cup of onions
✓ ¼ cup of cheese
✓ 2 teaspoons of butter or olive oil or coconut oil
✓ Salt and pepper to taste
In a big bowl tap the eggs on the side and carefully allow the egg white to pour into the bowl while you pass the egg yolk from shell to shell. Dispose of the egg yolk or use it for a facial mask or condition your hair. In a medium-size, stainless steel frying pan put the butter or oil you want on medium heat. Cut up the onions into small pieces. Mix the cheese and onions into the egg whites.
Put the handheld frother into the egg white mixture and turn it on for about a minute. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the top. Allow the egg white to dry a little on the top. Watch so the bottom does not get too brown or burn. Then take a spatula, when the top is a little dry, and flip the egg white over. The egg white will cook fast.
Mix Oil and Vinegar Dressing
No salad is delicious without a great-tasting dressing. Forget the store-bought dressing full of preservatives. The fresh-made dressing is the way to go and a handheld milk frother can help you make the fresh dressing.

✓ 2/3 olive oil
✓ Salt and vinegar to taste.
Pour oil and vinegar, salt and pepper into a high walled glass. Place the milk frother into the mixture and mix for about a minute. Pour the combination over salad or into a dressing container to set on your table.
Make sure after every use of the handheld frother you rinse the frother off immediately under the faucet.
Making any one of these great recipes is fun when you have a handheld milk frother.
