Egg Bacon Spinach Omelette is quick and easy to prepare. Honestly, I don’t think you even need a recipe to make this. This Egg Bacon Spinach Omelette is pretty versatile.
With many people staying home these days, it is feasible to prepare this delicious Egg Bacon Spinach Omelette for breakfast or if you are like me, it is for brunch.
I am a night person, it is not unusual for me to go to bed at 6 in the morning. For a few months now, I been trying to get back to my normal routine.
Lately, I’ve been turning off my computer at 2 am so I can go to bed earlier. Sometimes, it takes me forever to fall asleep but I try not to get up to fire up my computer again.
For some reason, my mind is at its best during the wee hours, even when I was younger. I studied overnight.
Anyway, this Egg Bacon Spinach Omelette is pretty versatile.
As most of us are social distancing and trying to avoid running an errand, you can improvise this recipe to what you have on hand.
Grocery stores are still struggling to keep their shelves fully stocked. They cannot keep up with the demand and some ingredients are hard to come by.
So again, I have mentioned many times BE CREATIVE and RESOURCEFUL WHEN COOKING, not just at this time of uncertainty.
In light of this crisis, my goal is to use up all my seasonings and ingredients on hand before running to the grocery store. One positive can come out of this. I can clean up my pantry and fridge, I can save money and I can stay SAFE if I STAY HOME!
I haven’t been to the grocery store for almost a month. The last time I was out I bought mostly canned goods.
I am using this time to clean out my freezer. The 1st three bins are all leftover ingredients from previous cooking.
Spinach and lettuce were the only vegetables I bought. Guess what, I had another batch of spinach in my vegetable bin that I tossed away.
As much as I hate throwing food, sometimes I have to. By the time I get to it, it went bad already.
This is one reason why I have so much in my freezer. I could have freezed this spinach to make it into a smoothie. Oh well.
Other ingredients to make omelette
Making omelette is very versatile. You are not limited to the ingredients called for in this recipe.
Use whatever you have.
Luckily, I have a few dozen of eggs. Anytime, egg is on sale, I usually get 4 dozen.
Most of the stuff people were trying to stocked up, I already have on hand which saved me the headache. For one, I hate crowds and standing in line.
Now, who wants to be in a grocery store. First, I don’t know if they’ll have what I need. Second, afraid I’ll catch "whatever" in there. Third, the task involved after doing my grocery.
It is a chore to go grocery shopping but it is more of a chore now. We have to do extra steps before we can put away all the stuff depending on the precautions you want to take.
In my opinion, I would rather do more as far as “PRECAUTION”. I don’t mind if it’s OVERKILL but at least I know I did my best to keep myself and family SAFE.
Before our current situation, it was not uncommon for me to wash fruits and onions before I use it. Almost everything gets washed when I’m ready to use it, even meat.
I haven’t done grocery shopping for almost a month. This will be my new routine after grocery shopping. As soon as I get home, all my PRODUCE will be washed before I put them away. What an annoyance!
There’s no flexibility at this time. I have to do it a certain way if I want it inside my house right away. If I procrastinate, they will sit in my garage, except for meat of course.
Even on normal days, you will NOT find me grocery shopping on the weekend. Also, I try to keep commonly used ingredients for my cooking.
You’ll be surprise, I have different kinds of frozen peppers in my freezer. Some are from my garden. As a food blogger, I don’t want to be running to the store if I only need 3 Thai Chili peppers.
Anyway, here are some ingredients you can use to make omelette.
Sausage or Vienna sausage
Yellow, White or Red onion
These are ingredients I have in my fridge and pantry and I could have used it to make omelette. So before you run to the store, check first your inventory.
For a healthier omelette version
Use only Egg whites to make omelette and eliminate bacon. Load up on vegetables. Be creative, add garbanzos, Lima beans, black olives and any vegetables or beans you love.
