You can make the omelette with just egg whites or more egg whites/less yolk, with veggies or skip the veggies. I love adding spinach to my omelette.
Cheese can be added to the egg mixture and make the omelette with the cheese.
You can skip grilling the tortilla/omelette on the panini maker; just warm the tortilla and wrap the omelette/cheese in it.
