Haven’t made my hubby a true omelet in ages, so I whipped him up one this morning. Had 4 slices of bacon left in my package and decided to go for simple, only adding green onion to the mix. It was delicious and he was most pleased. I’m not so fond of omelets as they are a lot more difficult to cook than simple scrambled eggs. But for some reason, the hubs thinks they are better. Problem for me is that in order to get all the egg fully cooked in the middle, you tend to have to overcook the egg surfaces that touch the pan. I don’t like either issue if things go wrong. But today’s omelet got done in the middle without terribly overcooking the outside. This omelet is suitable for all phases of Atkins and other Keto diets. It is also suitable for Paleo or Primal programs.

4 extra-large eggs, beaten
4 thick slices bacon, chopped
1/3 c. green onion, chopped
DIRECTIONS: Beat the eggs in a small bowl and set aside. Coarsely chop the bacon and onion and have at the ready. Brown bacon over medium-high heat in a non-stick skillet. Drain off most of the grease. Add the onion and stir-fry the two together for a minute. Spread the mixture out evenly in the pan and lower heat to medium. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bacon in the skillet. Do not disturb the mixture. As the eggs begin to cook on the bottom, tilting the skillet as you work, lift the edges of the “pancake” gently with your spatula to allow the raw eggs to roll underneath the cooked part of the pancake. Repeat this around the edges of the “pancake” until all raw egg appears to have rolled underneath fro proper cooking. Lightly scrape off any remaining raw egg with your spatula and let it get underneath to be sure it is all cooked properly. Gently fold over about 1/2 of the pancake onto the other side with your spatula. Cook 1 minute or so. Gently flip the entire omelet over to insure any exposed, raw wet egg will get cooked. Leave the finished omelet in this position for about 1-2 minutes. Finally tip the skillet over your warmed platter and slide the omelet onto it. TIP: I hold the platter under very hot, running tap water a few seconds and dry off rather than heat in an oven. The above photo uses a huge plate and is actually TWO servings. I simply took the photo before cutting the omelet in half.
