Directions

  1. Place bacon into a skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate, allow to cool, and crumble the bacon.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  3. Whisk eggs and milk in a bowl until smooth.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in an omelet pan or skillet over medium heat and pour in egg mixture. Swirl the pan to coat the bottom of the skillet evenly with the eggs. Cook until the omelet is barely set but the edges are not hard, 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Gently flip the omelet over and cook the other side, about 1 more minute.
  6. Place omelet onto a broiler-safe baking sheet; top the omelet with crumbled bacon, diced tomato, deli turkey, and Monterey Jack cheese.
  7. Fold the omelet in half to enclose the fillings and place the omelet under the broiler until the cheese bubbles, about 2 minutes.
  8. Place omelet onto a serving platter and arrange the tomato slices on the omelet. Pour hollandaise sauce over the omelet and sprinkle with parsley flakes to serve.

I increased the bacon to two pieces and I used butter instead of vegetable oil. My oldest son and I split this (my youngest took one look at it and refused to try it). His comment was "Mom--it's a scrambled egg with gravy!" Next time, I want to try this on an english muffin with the hollandaise sauce spooned over the top. I bet that would really be good.

Wow - this definitely is meant for two people and since I've never had a "Colorado Omelet" I really have nothing to compare this to but just as the submitter states it's a "delicious change of pace from traditional omelets". Since my husband is a huge fan of bacon I did add a little more and I didn't cook this in oil but with just a little butter as I always do. I also de-seeded my tomato to avoid things getting watery. The addition of deli turkey was different and next time I might sub ham. I left the hollandaise sauce on the side and I'm kinda glad I did... I served this with a side of toast and OJ - very filling!
