Bacon, Mushroom and Pepper Jack Cheese Omelet

This is similar to the BMP Omelet (bacon, mushrooms, pepper jack cheese) served at our local Shari's Restaurant, which I really love. They don't provide recipes, so I had to re-create it at home. I don't know if it's an exact duplicate, but it's a really good copycat, if I can say so myself. They serve 3-egg omelets in their restaurant, but I tapered this down to 2 eggs which is more suitable for my appetite. And sometimes I omit the bacon, but it's great either way. And the ingredients are in amounts that I personally like, so feel free to adjust ingredients to suit your preferences.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2 large
eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp
low-fat milk
1 pinch
salt
1 pinch
black pepper
1 slice
bacon, cooked and crumbled into pieces
2
button mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 oz
grated pepper jack cheese
1 Tbsp
black olives, sliced (i try to use spanish black olives when i can get them)
1/2
green onion, sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Lightly spray 8-inch skillet with no-stick spray. Heat skillet over medium heat.
2
In a bowl beat together eggs, milk, salt and pepper until frothy. Pour into heated skillet. Cook, uncovered, without stirring for about 4 minutes and eggs start to set. As eggs start to set, run a spatula around the edge of the skillet and lift eggs slightly so the uncooked portion can flow underneath.
3
When eggs are almost set, sprinkle the crumbled bacon pieces, sliced mushrooms and Pepper Jack cheese down the center of the omelet; let cook another 1 to 2 minutes, or until eggs are set throughout and the cheese is just starting to melt.
4
Fold the omelet in thirds by folding one side of the omelet over the filling, and then folding the other side over the first side.
5
Transfer the omelet to a plate. Garnish the top of the omelet with sliced black olives and green onion slices.
