The German Spinach Omelette is a great German egg recipe that you will love.  Did you know that the German lunch consists always of a warm meal? In my childhood dinners were always served cold. If the dinner would consist of some warm dish then it would be some small and light food, such as an omelette, fried egg or "Griessbrei (semolina pudding)".
A good German egg recipe is the spinach omelet  that is easy to make and it's a healthy alternative for a lunch. Why? A good lunch takes care of 30 percent of the overall calories which the body needs a day. Such a lunch replaces a warm dinner.
You can also add it to a brunch buffet or have it as a light dinner.  Happy Cooking!
