Omelet with bacon and onion

Onion and Bacon Omelet is one of the most common omelets we make. We usually make it on weekends. Then we have plenty of time to enjoy a wonderful breakfast. The omelet is easy to make, it’s delicious, and like other omelet recipes, it can be improved to your own taste. Personally, I like to add mushrooms to it, but then we’d be talking about another omelet recipe. This breakfast dish (and not just for breakfast) goes very well with a tomato salad with fresh basil. 
Let’s get down to business and see how we can make a great onion and bacon omelet!

Omelet with bacon and onion

This classic breakfast or brunch dish is a folded egg envelope filled with savory goodness. Crispy bacon and caramelized onions add bursts of flavor and texture to the fluffy eggs. It's a quick and customizable meal that can be enjoyed hot off the pan.

1 pan
1 fork or a whisk



  • Whisk the eggs with a fork or whisk until they become frothy. There is no need to separate the whites from the yolks. Add a dash of water. Some people like to add milk which is fine too. This is the secret to making them really fluffy. Add a pinch of salt and a little pepper. Personally, I like to add something spicy like a little paprika or dried chili pepper seeds through a grinder.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of oil or a small knob of butter. Add the bacon, cut into strips or cubes, as desired. Let it cook until browned on one side, then flip and add the onion, sliced or chopped finely, as you prefer. Once the bacon is browned on both sides and the onion has changed color slightly, add the beaten eggs. Cover and cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, then flip the omelet onto the other side. You can use the lid to help you do this. Cook for another minute or two, then serve. To make it more visually appealing you can add a little chopped parsley.
