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

  1. Cook bacon in a frying pan over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to kitchen towels to drain and cool; crumble the bacon and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion in the butter until tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Prepare a 25cm or similar sized non-stick frying pan with cooking oil spray. Whisk together the eggs and water; pour the egg mixture into the cold frying pan. Place pan over medium-high heat and cover.
  4. Cook until steam begins to vent from the frying pan. Remove the lid. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon, Cheddar cheese, processed cheese, salt and crushed chillies over the eggs. Spread the onions over the eggs. Gently swirl the frying pan in a circular motion to release the omelette and slide it onto a plate. Fold the omelette in half. Allow the cheese to melt, about 2 minutes.
