For some peculiar reason, I had just two rashers of bacon left over in the fridge. Stranger things have been known to happen though. I could not live with myself if I let them go to waste so very quickly whipped them out of the fridge along with 2 mushrooms, and egg (which had 2 yolks :-)) and some cheddar cheese and turned it all into a lovely little omelet. This was the ideal super quick, tasty and easy lunch. Think I may have to always keep 2 spare rashers of bacon going forward.
Un-Recipe – Bacon and Mushroom Omelet
2 rashers bacon chopped
2 mushrooms sliced
1 egg lightly beaten
2 tbsp grated cheddar cheese
- Fry the bacon and mushrooms until browned and sprinkle on vegetable spice.
- Add the egg and grated cheese.
- Fold sides into the middle and turn.
Boy oh boy … I know now exactly what I want for breakfast 🙂
With a nice cup of tea and a slice of toast. Have a happy day. 🙂
I’m so happy whenever I broke the egg and found that it had 2 yolks 🙂 Your omelet look amazing! Simple, yet flavourful 🙂
I have been going through a spout of having loads of double yolks Tes – it has been years since I had a double yolk and now so many! have a super day. 🙂
Omelettes are my favourite go-to foods when there is nothing else in the fridge.. might be time to brave the supermarket tho..c
Thinking of you having to go the supermarket C – I know it is not your speed but hopefully you will find something nice to take back for Your John. Have a super day and hope your fingers are healing nicely. 🙂
Sometimes, Mandy, a simple dish can be more satisfying than a 4 course dinner at a fine restaurant. I bet your omelet was one such dish. Have a great day!
Absolutely ChgoJohn – simplicity is often the best. Have a super day too. 🙂
This is what I call the ultimate comfort breakfast, nothing will go wrong in this trusted recipe 🙂
So nice to know it is a favourite all over the world. Have a happy day. 🙂
LOL! You’re right. I always make sure we have bacon in the fridge…and in freezer. See, I’m more serious. 😉 I actually forgot about omelet in my lunch menu with the kids. I have to make one tomorrow now, just like yours! I love checking other blogs – I don’t have to “think” about menu. 😉
Oh yes, bacon in the freezer is a prerequisite – a minimum of 2 packets at any one time. 😉 Enjoy the omelets and have a happy day. 🙂
Fridge Finds are my favourites. I hate the thought of waste, and it just gives me the opportunity to get inventive. I think this is what I’ll have for my lunch today, so thank you 🙂
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did Claire and have a happy day. 🙂
Bacon and mushrooms were meant for each other! Delicious and how lucky to have a double yolk egg!
Lady luck must be shining down on me at the moment as I have had about 5 double yolks in the past few weeks! Have a super day. 🙂
Looks great, I actually just did the same thing with 2 pieces of bacon I had in the fridge that needed to be cooked! 🙂
Great minds I tell you. Have a super day. 🙂
I was *just* telling my husband that I’m in the mood for warming eggs this morning and what do I see?! I delightful omelette all dressed up. This looks fantastic Mandy!
Thanks Kelly. Hope you got to have your eggs. Have a happy day. 🙂

Love your unrecipe post- especially this one because we are egg lovers in this house and always trying to think of a new way with new ingredients to make them with! Awesome
Thanks Belle, glad you enjoyed the idea. have a super day. 🙂
I love a good omelet for breakfast. Oddly enough I haven’t made one since I was a teenager. I might have to pick that up again. 😉

How lovely Angie, thanks! Have a super day. 🙂
Omelets or frittatas are always my go to for using up leftovers!! Nice mix of flavors in your omelet!
Thanks so much! Have a super day. 🙂
I am not a huge mushroom fan, but I am such a omelet type of gal and your omelet looks absolutely amazing. And I just love bacon 🙂
Thanks Kay – this would be equally as nice without the mushrooms – maybe some roma tomatoes would be a yummy substitute. Have a super day. 🙂
Simple and classic is best, yum|!
