Breakfast in the KSH Kitchen
Back to breakfast in the KSH kitchen, sometimes recipes happen unexpectedly. At times it’s because I’m missing an ingredient and have to improvise. Other times, it’s because I’m simply cooking from whatever I have on hand – like the bacon omelet.
I came up with a stuffed omelet one day when cooking breakfast for my husband and my oldest brother who was visiting us. My husband and I had breakfast first, and I made the stuffed omelets. This was the result:
How to make a bacon-stuffed omelet
This bacon omelet recipe is easy to do, and you can even make it easier than I do. Let me explain.
I like to bake my bacon which is what I did for this recipe. Baking bacon takes longer than frying in a pan on the stove, in a microwave, or on a griddle. So do what works best for you.
Sometimes I use parchment paper and other times foil, as I did here:
Even though it’s easy to make this stuffed omelet, there are several steps. And there are only four main ingredients – spinach, cheese, eggs, and bacon.

The ingredients for this yummy bacon-stuffed omelet include measurements by handfuls. A handful of spinach, a handful of cheese, etc. Of course, a handful varies, depending on the size of the chef’s hand. But that’s okay. Use as much spinach and cheese as you wish, a small or large handful.
Baking with Silicone Mats
You can bake with silicone mats instead of using foil or parchment paper. The mats can be used over and over. This set can be purchased from Amazon:
I normally cook my omelets on an electric griddle or a cast iron skillet. However, I am putting this fun omelet maker on my list of next kitchen appliances to buy:
Check it out. There’s a video you can see when viewing this omelet maker on Amazon. Now that’s the easy way to cook omelets.
Spinach and Cheese Omelet Stuffed with Bacon
A delicious spinach and cheese omelet stuffed with bacon
- 2 Teaspoon Coconut Oil
- 1 Handful Spunach (raw)
- 6 Large eggs
- 1 Handful Grated cheese
- 6 Slices Thick bacon, precooked in oven and cut or torn into bite-size pieces
Place a sheet of parchment paper onto a cookie sheet, and place 6 slices of bacon on top of it.
Bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes.
After the bacon is cooked, plug in your electric griddle and turn the temperature to approximately 325°F.
Add the coconut oil on the griddle.
Add a handful of spinach.
Beat the eggs with a whisk then pour the eggs on top of the spinach on the griddle.
Let the eggs cook for about a minute, then add a handful of grated cheese on top of the egg and spinach mixture.
Shape the eggs, while they’re firming up, into a rectangle with a spatula.
When the egg mixture looks firm enough to fold over, use a spatula to cut into three sections.
Fold over each section and press each one with the spatula to make them spread out longer.
Turn the griddle off.
Slice each omelet in the middle to stuff bacon pieces into.
Sprinkle several bacon pieces on top of the omelets also.
Serve the omelets with toast if you wish.
The recipe takes about 20 minutes for the bacon and about 4 minutes for the omelets. However, it may not take as long if you cook your bacon in the microwave, in a pan on the stove, or on the griddle. And you don’t want the eggs to cook so fast that they start turning brown. You may need to turn your griddle down to 300°F if it’s cooking too fast.
The three of us loved the stuffed omelet. Very delicious.
Make it Simple
You may prefer simply making the omelet without stuffing it with bacon and eating the bacon slices as a side instead. That is perfectly fine. Make it as simple as you need to. It will taste wonderful either way.

For those who can’t do eggs but wish there was a way you could eat omelets, try this out. I actually dined at a breakfast and brunch restaurant once while I was on a particular diet that did not include eggs. The server and cooks had never heard of an eggless omelet (neither had I until I got the idea while trying to decide what to order). This was the result, and it was delicious:
