Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Arrange bacon on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until just crisped, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Beat eggs and water together in a bowl.

  • Let the bacon cool on paper towels, about 5 minutes. Break into small pieces.

  • Spray a 10-inch non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Melt butter over medium heat until foaming, about 2 minutes. Add onion once butter is no longer foaming. Cook and stir until tender but not browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Increase heat to medium-high. Pour eggs into the skillet and cook until mostly set, about 2 minutes. Lift the omelet with a spatula as the center rises; tilt the skillet so that uncooked eggs run to the center of the pan. Cook until set, 2 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle bacon pieces onto the omelet and fold in half using the spatula.

Cook's Note:

You can cut the omelet in half for easier maneuvering before serving.

Delicious! This is a BIG omelet so I shared it with my son who LOVED it! He's not big on cheese in omelets so he enjoyed it as is. I also enjoyed it as it was but I would've loved some cheese added which is how I will make it for myself next time. I did add some salt and pepper to taste. This is super flavorful...YUM! Thanks for sharing.:)

Made this for my daughter and I for breakfast. It's super easy but it needed cheese and salt and pepper. I added a little paprika to the mix to jazz it up a little. They are quite big with 3 eggs but 2 is just right.

In Canada this was the traditional Western Omelet. ( no cheese like a western here in the States I have found ). I love them and put the omelet between 2 slices of bread for a 'Western Sandwich'. You can add green pepper with the onion as well for a little crunch and additional flavour.

This is a favorite of mine. Sometimes I wrap it all in a flour tortilla fried in butter with some pico de gallo. Also I buy precooked bacon and this make the dish so easy.

I used two eggs instead of three and added some grated cheese to the omelet with a little on top. It turned out great.

You can't go wrong with bacon and eggs in just about any form! This omelet is really enough for at least 2 people unless you have a really big appetite.

I have made this tons of times. But I fry my bacon and use the grease to cook my onions and eggs. I have also made them with milk mixed with the eggs instead of water I think it gets fluffier.

I found the omlet stuck to the pan. So I cooked the onions in a seperate pan and then added it to the eggs in the omlet pan. Worked perfectly. Vety tasty. Can alsosubstitute mushrooms for the bacon.
