Have I ever told you guys about my love affair with breakfast food? Well, I am an addict. I love all things breakfast - the sweet, the savory, the salty, the meats, the pastries. And if you've been reading my blog for awhile now, you probably also know how much I love bacon. I mean, I even sign off with a bacon reference! So you see that I do have a problem. But I don't really think it's a problem. More of a solution. Sad? Eat some bacon. Happy? Eat some bacon. Bored? Eat some bacon. Problem solved. I guess that is characteristic of an addict... not thinking they have a problem....
Anyways, so I love bacon. And omelets. Put em together and I've got a satisfying morning. Or afternoon, or evening... whatever time of day you decide to eat these, it will be equally delicious! Side note: have you guys seen the reality show called "Solitary"? Well, Val - an artificial intelligence voice and the only source of communication for the contestants - always says 'Good morning, afternoon, evening...' because the contestants are confined to a pod and don't have any sense of time while they are in there. They don't know if it's the morning, afternoon, or evening. And Val plays along, she doesn't wanna give them any sense of the outside world. That's what my little comment above reminded me of. You can eat these omelets for a 'good morning, afternoon, evening...' Imagine me saying that in my "Val" voice.
Enough about reality tv, and more about breakfast food. We used what we had on hand... we had 8 slices of bacon so that's what we used (we made 2 omelets total, one for him and one for me... so we cooked 8 slices total but use 4 per omelet). We had about a cup of onions so we used that much for the both of us. Keep in mind that onions do shrink a bit when you saute them so be sure to use more if you like alot of onions! We just didn't have more at the time.
