Folded Cheese Omelette with Bacon and Avocado
This classic cheese omelette is loaded with a crispy bacon, cheddar and avocado filling.
- 4 medium eggs
- 4 bacon rashers (strips) unsmoked
- 1 avocado peeled and sliced
- 1 spring onion (green onion) finely chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh chives finely chopped
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 80 g cheddar cheese grated
- salt and pepper to season
- Heat the olive oil in a frying pan (skillet) over a medium heat and add the bacon. Cook through until golden brown and slightly crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl with a generous pinch of salt and pepper, a tablespoon of water, the chives and half of the cheese. Beat together well to combine.
- Heat the butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Pour in the egg mixture and leave to settle and cook a little in the pan.
- As the egg starts to cook, use a spatula to push the cooked edges towards the centre, allowing any uncooked egg to flow into the gaps.
- Once the omelette is almost completely cooked, flip over to brown the other side. You can slide the omelette onto a plate to flip over for ease.
- Scatter the remaining cheese over half of the omelette and arrange the cooked bacon on top, layer over the sliced avocado and sprinkle over the spring onions. Cook for a further few minutes until the cheese has melted and the bacon is hot through.
- Carefully fold the uncovered omelette half over the filling to serve.
This makes for a filling brunch on its own or served with a simple side salad.
