Country Style Omelette

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Peter J

Adaptation of a recipe I saw on a cooking show a few years ago. I've listed exactly what I used on this occasion but of course a lot of variations are possible and different styles of cheese may be used.

This made a delicious brunch this morning. I did make a couple of changes based on ingredients on hand. I went for the ham and it had been eaten. I cooked a couple of slices of chopped bacon in a cast iron skillet, rendered the fat, added in the potatoes, bell peppers, onions and mushrooms. After they had cooked a bit, I poured the beaten eggs over. I did flip the omelet and then topped it off with goat cheese and the parmesan. This was served with sliced tomatoes and homemade gluten-free biscuits. The recipe actually made 4 nice servings.
