Popeye Omelettes: Spinach, Bacon & Garlic

Want to make the best omelettes you’ve ever had?

There’s a secret ingredient you’re probably missing. It sounds crazy, but it will make your taste buds dance. Ready for it?

Garlic.

I know what you’re thinking. Actually, I don’t. But what you should be thinking is, “That’s genius.”  Because it is.

As far as omelettes go, this is my favorite, ever. Bacon, spinach, garlic, cheese and eggs…ingredients I consume on a daily basis. With the exception of cheese, these all have varying nutritional benefits: iron (spinach), garlic (phyto-nutrients), protein (bacon and eggs). These are perfect on a leisurely Sunday morning, or on a weekday if you have enough time.

What are your favorite things to put in eggs?

These healthy omelettes have a secret ingredient. With spinach, cheese, bacon, and garlic, you'll want to make these every morning.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 pieces bacon (cooked)
  • 1/4 cup swiss cheese (or whatever your favorite is)
  • salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil or butter (or a combination of both)

Directions

Step 1
In a medium saute pan, wilt spinach by place in high heat. Add a few drops of water and cover with a lid to wilt quickly.
Step 2
When spinach is cooked down, add olive oil and chopped garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
Step 3
In a bowl, beat eggs, salt and pepper.
Step 4
Lower the heat in your pan and pour egg in.
Step 5
Once the edges of the eggs have set, crumble bacon onto one side of the omelette, then top with cheese.
Step 6
Gently fold the non-topped half of the omelette on top of the cheese and bacon side, pressing down firmly with a spatula. Allow excess eggs to cook for a minute.
Step 7
Flip onto other side and allow to cook for another minute, or until the omelette is no longer runny.
Step 8
Serve hot. Great topped with avocado.
