Simple, but oh so good bacon and vegetable omelette recipe


Who says omelettes are for breakfast?! Not me, I enjoy having an omelette for dinner, with an extra egg and some more ingredients. A totally versatile recipe which can be tailored to your own personal taste, vegetarian, packed with meat or just with a few vegetables – it’s completely up to you! This is my favourite way to have an omelette as my evening meal.

About this dish:

Course: Breakfast/Dinner
Prep/cooking time: 20 mins
Difficulty level: Easy peasy
Serves: 1 person


3 eggs
Cheddar cheese
Half a red bell pepper
Half a red onion
3 rashers of bacon
1 handful of frozen peas
1 handful of frozen sweetcorn
Olive oil

Step 1:

Prepare all your ingredients – chop the red pepper, red onion and bacon. Whisk up the 3 eggs, grate the cheese and boil water in a pan on high heat.

Step 2:

Begin to fry the bacon and onion in a frying pan and while they’re cooking crack the 3 eggs and mix in a bowl with grated cheese.

Step 3:

Boil the frozen peas and sweetcorn and add to the bacon, onions and pepper.

Step 4:

Once all the veg is nearly cooked, add the egg and cheese mixture into the frying pan and make sure it’s all evenly distributed.

Step 5:

After about 5 minutes, now is the time to attempt to turn it! If you can manage that, good for you! I can’t - so I put the frying pan under the grill which is on a medium heat for another 5 minutes or until it’s cooked.

Step 6:

Serve on a plate and enjoy!!
