My son loves omelets & I created this one for him years ago. I made one for him this morning which reminded me to post it. As he has grown so has the omelet. He's now 26, so its man sized! You can adjust it to your liking. I downsize it when I make one for me. I do not add salt, as the salt in the bacon & the cheeses tends to be more than enough for us. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! This would do well not only pan fry but you could also take the cooked filling add to cake pan, add egg mixture, stir & bake at 350. You can eat it with cheese or without.
