Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.:) Read More

Great recipe however omelettes only require 2 large eggs. This makes the portion smaller and easier to handle in the pan and also with plating. Read More

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. Read More

How can you go wrong with an omelet? As long as it is never brown that is. This is a favorite in my house with a little cheese. One tip for a sure fire pan, non stick or otherwise. This from the French Chef, and I've used for years... Heat your clean pan, sprinkle salt liberally in it, take big wad of paper towels and continue to rub it around the inside making sure you cover all the inside well. Remove the salt by rubbing with clean paper towels. Add butter or olive oil and continue with your omelet. I always swirl my pan slightly around so the uncooked egg goes to the side and continues to cook. Sometimes you can help with this by using a flat wooden paddle to gently guide the raw egg to the side. Any raw egg left in the middle will cook fast if you poke a few holes here and there to let it seep into the pan. Your seasoned pan will accommodate all of this and nothing will stick. Done right you will have the perfect omelet every time. Also never lift your omelet out of the pan, you should never need to do that. Fill your omelet with your choice of filling, tilt the pan slightly encouraging the first roll and watch it roll right out of the pan onto the plate. Practice a little and you will see how easy this is... fun to watch. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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

You can't go wrong with Bacon and Onion but I add the cheese of the diner's choice. I am curious about why this was called the "Deluxe Bacon Onion Omelette"? Bacon does make the world go around! Read More
