Reviews for Bacon Potato Omelet
Sort By :
We really enjoyed this dish although I'm not sure I'd call it an omelet. That aside, it filled us up and was a great start to the morning. Next time, we're going to add green peppers, mushrooms and garlic.
This is a good recipe, but omit the salt as bacon contains salt. Also never use a non stick pan. The coating in the pans are not good for you, especially if the coating is scratched or marred in anyway. I use a cast iron or stainless steel skillet and use butter to coat the pan. The butter contains salt also.
