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.

How To Make bacon, mushroom and pepper jack cheese omelet

  • 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.
