Ingredients

  • 1 slice Sensations by Compliments Maple Wood Smoked Bacon
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 red or green pepper, finely diced
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) frozen French fries or hash brown potatoes
  • 1 cup (250 mL) baby spinach
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter

Method

  1. In medium-size skillet (approx. 8-in./20-cm diameter), cook bacon over medium heat about 2 min., until the pieces begin to curl. Add onion, pepper and frozen French fries or hash browns. (Note: Potato products can be added frozen. Break up hash browns if they are patties.) Cook about 5 min., stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and fries or hash browns are hot. Stir in spinach; cook about 1 min. to wilt.
  2. In bowl, fork-beat eggs, salt, pepper and 2 tbsp (30 mL) cold water. Add butter to skillet; stir through to melt. Spread out filling evenly. Pour in beaten eggs.
  3. Gently push egg mixture setting at edges into centre of skillet to create “furrows” in omelette. This produces a fluffier texture. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 5 to 8 min., or until egg mixture is set.
  4. Cut omelette into wedges to serve.
Tip:
For Western sammies, serve between toasted bread slices.
