Nice take on an omelet and great technique for cooking! Since my husband is a huge fan of bacon I just had to give this a try and I'm glad I did. This was very filling - perfect for a weekend breakfast for two! I omitted the American cheese and just stuck with the sharp cheddar. The addition of the red pepper flakes gave it a nice kick. This was delicious served with whole grain toast and fresh fruit!
No steam arose from pot so egg got a little overcooked. Cheese and bacon was a little overbearing.
Wonderful technique. Yielded a nice puffy omelet like one gets in a restaurant. Using what I had on hand, I substituted Parmesan and Sharp Cheddar, sauteed frozen pre-chopped onion and bell pepper blend, real bacon bits and pimiento for more color. I'll use this recipe again soon.
Thank you for sharing this super easy technique! I have never had luck with making omelets, but when I saw that other readers were having luck with this method, I decided to give it a try I followed the directions exactly, and added bell pepper and banana peppers with my onion. Thanks again!
Delicious and easy! The first time I ever made a beautiful omelet without it falling apart!!! I spayed my pan, cover and steamed it, put my bacon on it(I always microwave it on paper towels, removes so much of the grease) and simply used salsa then cheddar a few sprinkles of red pepper flakes, melted the cheese with the lid on flipped it over. Just sooo good and easy, breakfast was done in like 5 min!
Wow!! Awesome Techique! Every time I attempted to make omelets, it was a disaster!! This was super simple, and made GREAT omelets!!!
This was great. I used onion powder and sprinkled chives over the top since i don't care for regular onion. I was skeptical of the cooking method, but it worked great and was easier too. Thanks for the great recipe!
I used my own ingredients, but used this recipe for the technique - very good technique. I have been unsuccessful with omelettes in the past, but this one turned out perfect. I did not see any steam venting, so I just added the ingredients when the egg looked cooked through and started to 'bubble'. Produced a nice golden brown omelette.
