Tasty and light breakfast: scrambled eggs with bacon.

Omelet with bacon is one of the most nutritious and at the same time simple dishes. Breakfast for most families is a great confirmation of this.

Omelet, like fried eggs, has long been considered a hearty dish rich in proteins and other useful substances. In the 70s, Soviet nutritionists talked about the negative effects of cholesterol on human health, and eggs for breakfast were declared a harmful excess. At that time, it was considered correct to limit the use of eggs to 2-3 pieces per week and completely abandon them with a high level of cholesterol in the blood. Bacon, after eggs, was perceived as a toxic product due to various chemical compounds used in its preparation.

But today, we know that eggs are great food. They contain not only “good” cholesterol along with “bad”, but also natural vitamin E, which is an active antioxidant and helps prevent cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

Bacon is not harmful at all, unless, of course, overcooked.

How to cook omelet with bacon:

In a frying pan, put finely chopped fat on a cutting board and put on medium heat. While the lard is melted, cut off a few pieces of bacon and also spread them in a frying pan. We clean the head of the onion, finely chop it (well or large, here, like my husband). Spread in a frying pan with bacon and bacon, and fry everything together, until the onions are slightly golden.

Meanwhile, we break the chicken eggs into a small bowl and, until a homogeneous consistency, beat with a fork. Salt and pepper to taste.

Next, pour fat with bacon and onions, beaten eggs.

Bacon Omelet

You can fry the omelet with bacon until tender, about seven minutes. But, if you want to get the same result as in my photo below, then after three to four minutes after adding beaten eggs you need to turn over the omelet with bacon.

This case requires some skill. I noticed how my cook cooks this dish: it goes along the edges with a spatula. If the edges extend, then a wide spatula dives under the omelet and flips in one fell swoop. From the first time, not everyone turns over and does not break an omelet with bacon. Do not worry! Turn the pieces of the dish separately.

As an option, I tried to turn the omelet into a second frying pan and already bring it to final readiness there. But it’s better to entrust the cooking of this dish to a professional man.

When the omelet with bacon is turned upside down, let it fry a little on the other side, and remove from heat.

To consume, freshly cooked scrambled eggs with bacon is preferably hot, airy, until it “has lowered”. Therefore, immediately after cooking, lay out scrambled eggs with bacon, decorate with greens and invite to the table!

Types of Omelet

Everyone's favorite omelet is different. Depending on national tastes and customs, it is prepared with the addition of various products.
