Honey 3 tablespoons
Ground cinnamon ½ teaspoon

  5. Place the pan under the broiler until the cheese is melted and the egg is completely set.
  6. Spread half the fruit on one side of the omelet.
  7. Top the fruit with a generous dollop of the yogurt, which has been blended with the cinnamon and honey.
