I was just talking to a friend today about how she loves breakfast foods for any meal. I was actually considering making waffles for dinner tonight but then I thought of this bacon pepper omelet (mostly because making an omelet is faster than making waffles). I love a brinner! You know brinner right? Breakfast for dinner! This bacon pepper omelet is delicious and is filling enough for dinner. Omelets are really great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I always have eggs in my fridge, its a kitchen staple for me. You can't really go wrong with having enough eggs because they are a good source of protein. I originally came up with this bacon pepper omelet by cleaning out my fridge since I already had everything. I compare making omelets with how I make fried rice sometimes, just throw in whatever you've got! Look at how nice and gooey the swiss cheese melted in the omelet... nom nom nom!
Bacon Pepper Omelet
3 slices of bacon, cooked
¼ cup bell pepper, diced
2 tablespoons milk
¼ cup swiss cheese, shredded
1 to 2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper until light and fluffy.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat, melt butter to coat bottom of pan.
Add egg mixture to pan and allow to cook for 1 minute.
Lift edges of omelet with a spatula to allow uncooked egg mixture to flow underneath. Allow to cook additional 2 to 3 minutes, until almost set.
Flip omelet over and top with bacon, peppers and cheese. Allow to cook for 1 minute.
Carefully using spatula, roll omelet into thirds (French style) or fold omelet in half.
