Omelets are such a versatile dish, they are something that can be whipped up rather quickly, with whatever ingredients you have on hand. That is exactly what this omelet was, except I realized it tasted absolutely delicious and wrote down the recipe to share with all of you!

This omelet is pretty packed, every bite is filled with the flavors of either mushrooms, or bacon, or potatoes. It filling and satisfying – it doesn’t get much better than this.

Living Lou’s Omelet (for 2)
Recipe by Lou


2 strips of bacon, sliced into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup diced Yukon gold potatoes
1 1/2 tsp oil
4 eggs
2 tbsp milk
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
1-2 button mushrooms thinly sliced
1 green onion chopped
1/2 tsbp butter


For this omelet, I recommend cooking it in a small frying pan.

Begin by slicing bacon in 1-inch pieces, then fry them up in 1/2 tsp of oil over medium heat until lightly cooked.

As bacon cooks, dice your potatoes (do not peel). Once the bacon is done, remove it to a bowl and set aside. In the same frying pan, add in the other 1 tsp of oil and season the potatoes with salt and pepper to taste. Fry the potatoes until golden about 8-9 minutes. Shaking the pan 2-3 times during cooking. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon.

While potatoes are cooking, combine eggs with milk and salt and pepper. Prepare the cheese, mushrooms and green onion.

Once the potatoes are done and removed from the pan, add the butter, followed by the egg mixture, sprinkle with cheese and add your other ingredients (mushrooms, green onions, potatoes and bacon).

Turn down the heat to medium-low and cover the pan and cook on the stove for about 8 minutes. Checking after 8 minutes and seeing whether the eggs have set. If they have you’re omelet is done, if not cook for another minute or two.

And there you have it, a delicious omelet, perfect for brunch, or a last minute dinner!
