1% lowfat milk

2. Lightly whisk egg whites, egg, milk and salt in a bowl. Wipe skillet clean. Lightly coat skillet with nonstick spray; heat over medium heat. Add egg mixture.

3. As eggs begin to set, run heatproof silicone spatula around edge so uncooked eggs can flow underneath. If eggs are set but still slightly runny on top, flip and cook for a few seconds. Turn egg patty over again and spoon filling on half of omelet; sprinkle with half of cheese. Fold omelet in half to cover the filling. Sprinkle remaining cheese and the thyme on top. Serve.
