This bacon mushroom spinach and jack cheese was something I came up with based on an omelette that I had in a restaurant 10 years ago. It's become my go-to omelette for a filling super delicious breakfast. I hope you enjoy it too.


  • 2-3 eggs (I can't finish a three egg one!)
  • 1/3 cup chopped baby spinach
  • Sliced mushrooms, about 1/2 cup
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped onion
  • 3-4 slices of cooked bacon, chopped or crumbled
  • 1/4 cup monterey jack cheese or mozzarella or swiss
  • salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon of sour cream (optional)


Cook a few pieces of bacon. Set aside on paper towels, cool, and chop.

Scramble eggs in bowl. Chop baby spinach and add to eggs with some salt and then add chopped bacon.

Put a tablespoon or two of butter in a 10 inch skillet over medium heat and add mushrooms and onion.

Sautee onions and mushrooms until they are turning brown.

Add the egg, spinach and bacon mixture to the skillet over the top of the mushrooms and onions.

Reduce heat just a little below medium and cover the skillet with a lid.

Wait patiently for egg to cook until no longer runny. Remove from heat and add cheese to one side, and flip other side over cheese. It will be hot enough to melt it.

Now the optional, but recommended part. Smear a tablespoon of sour cream on top of the omelette. Just trust me, the coolness of the sour cream is such a nice compliment to the flavorful rich omelette. Enjoy!

Whether you knew how to make an omelette, or this was first, I'm sure it won't be your last. Experiment with different ingredients and cheeses. You really can't do it wrong.
