Diner-Style Messy Omelettes

  • Prep Time 15 min
  • Total Time 25 min
  • Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 slice Sensations by Compliments Maple Wood Smoked Bacon
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 red or green pepper, finely diced
  • 3/4 cup frozen French fries or hash brown potatoes 175 mL
  • 1 cup baby spinach 250 mL
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt 2 mL
  • 1/2 tsp pepper 2 mL
  • 1 tbsp butter 15 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    In medium-size skillet (approx. 8-in./20-cm diameter), cook bacon over medium heat about 2 min., until the pieces begin to curl. Add onion, pepper and frozen French fries or hash browns. (Note: Potato products can be added frozen. Break up hash browns if they are patties.) Cook about 5 min., stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and fries or hash browns are hot. Stir in spinach; cook about 1 min. to wilt.

  • Step 2

    In bowl, fork-beat eggs, salt, pepper and 2 tbsp (30 mL) cold water. Add butter to skillet; stir through to melt. Spread out filling evenly. Pour in beaten eggs.

  • Step 3

    Gently push egg mixture setting at edges into centre of skillet to create “furrows” in omelette. This produces a fluffier texture. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 5 to 8 min., or until egg mixture is set.

  • Step 4

    Cut omelette into wedges to serve.

Tip

For Western sammies, serve between toasted bread slices.
