Western Skillet Omelet

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Lainey39

I'm always looking for great breakfast recipes and this one is delicious! Recipe is from Kraft. For a shortcut, you can use the ready to serve bacon or make the bacon in advance. I usually make it in the microwave the night before or use leftover bacon; then I omit cooking the bacon in this recipe.

Wonderful, colorful and tasting omelet!!! I did cheat and use the refrigerated hashbrowns, so no pre-cooking needed. I also had to use what I had on hand, which was red bell pepper and minced ham that needed to be used up, but otherwise followed ingredients as listed but scaled back for one serving. I did cover mine with a lid to help cook the top and melt the cheese as directed, but just poured the egg mixture(scrambled)over the veggies/ham. Once it was cooked, I folded it over for a traditional looking omelete. Thanks for sharing the recipe, always looking for breakfast recipes!!! Made for Potluck Tag Game.
