For the Simple Bacon Omelet Recipe
- 2 bacon strips – cut into small pieces
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Tablespoons water
- 2 teaspoons chives or cilantro – finely chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until well-browned (about 6 minutes).
Transfer bacon pieces to a paper towel and pour the excess bacon grease out of the pan. Return the pan to the stove top and reduce heat to medium.
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients (including the cooked bacon) and beat until well-combined.
Pour egg mixture into the skillet. As the egg starts to set, lift the edges of the omelet to let uncooked egg flow beneath the omelet. When almost completely set, flip the omelet and cook for 30 more seconds.
Fold the omelet and transfer to a serving plate.
