    Serves: 2

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Place potatoes in a saucepan covered by lightly salted water. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and allow to cool, then cut into 5mm slices.
    2. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon in the butter until browned, 5 to 7 minutes; remove bacon and set aside. Add the potatoes to the bacon fat and cook over medium-high heat until browned, about 5 minutes.
    3. Beat the eggs with the salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the frying pan and mix with the potatoes and bacon; allow to cook until eggs are set, 3 to 5 minutes, turning once.

    This was very good! I did add more ingredients for a more flavorful omelet. I used chopped turkey bacon and leftover red skinned potatoes. I added dried italian herb seasonings and a small amount of fresh shredded cheddar cheese. Tasted great.  -  17 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This receipe is good as is. The great thing about this basic receipe is you can add anything you want and it is good! Very versatile. We have added jalapeno jack cheese for extra kick.  -  15 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
