Directions

  1. In medium-size skillet (approx. 8-in./20-cm diameter), cook bacon over medium heat about 2 min., until the pieces begin to curl. Add onion, pepper and frozen French fries or hash browns. (Note: Potato products can be added frozen. Break up hash browns if they are patties.) Cook about 5 min., stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and fries or hash browns are hot. Stir in spinach; cook about 1 min. to wilt.

  2. In bowl, fork-beat eggs, salt, pepper and 2 tbsp (30 mL) cold water. Add butter to skillet; stir through to melt. Spread out filling evenly. Pour in beaten eggs.

  3. Gently push egg mixture setting at edges into centre of skillet to create “furrows” in omelette. This produces a fluffier texture. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 5 to 8 min., or until egg mixture is set.

  4. Cut omelette into wedges to serve.

Tip

For Western sammies, serve between toasted bread slices.
