How to make an omelette-
- Cook bacon pieces.
- Chop spinach and slice the tomatoes.
- Whisk egg mixture and add to a pan.
- Cook omelette, add remaining ingredients.
TIP: For the perfect finished egg, once you add the ingredients to the omelette, place the pan into the oven for 1-2 minutes on broil until tops of eggs finish cooking.
You can skip this step and close the lid of the pan once you add ingredients and turn the heat to low, allowing the eggs to finish cooking. Then just fold over the omelette.
