You can make fluffy omelets in less time (and with much less effort) than you may think. This brunch-worthy version has a bacon-and-cheddar-cheese filling.


  • 2 slices bacon, halved crosswise

  • 2 large eggs

  • teaspoon coarse salt

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil or butter

  • ½ cup shredded cheddar


  1. In a small skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp, turning as needed, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel to drain; let cool slightly, then crumble.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and salt until frothy. Make omelet, adding olive oil or butter to heated pan; fill with shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon.
