Tips on Making Tomato, Cheese, and Bacon Omelette
Omelette recipes in general are highly customizable. Here are our best tips on how to make a cheesy tomato bacon omelette plus how to tweak it to make one that suits your taste:
- Instead of using flavourless cooking oil or cooking spray, we recommend that you butter the pan. It packs tons of flavour to the eggs in addition to that from the bacon fat. But also take note that the bacon will render a significant amount of fat, so do not use too much butter.
- Use cheese that melts well for the perfect omelette with an extra cheesy and gooey filling. Other than Gruyere which we are using for this recipe, American cheese, cheddar cheese, and mozzarella cheese are great choices.
- Add your preferred filling like sweet onions, peppers, mushrooms, or even fresh herbs like green onions or parsley. But first, saute the omelette ingredients you wish to add to remove excess moisture so that they don’t end up being watery.
- Want a spicy omelette? Add some minced jalapeno or a dash of chilli powder. Alternatively, you can also enjoy it spicy by serving it with sriracha or hot sauce on the side.
- Make mini omelette patties that you can slide into buns or in between two slices of bread to make an omelette sandwich.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you put milk in your omelette?
It is better to add a splash of water to an omelette rather than milk. Water helps in keeping it light and thick as the bubbles form while milk only makes it watery. If you prefer a creamy omelette, you can add a small amount of mayonnaise or heavy cream while beating the egg. Remember to add only 1 tablespoon of liquid for every egg used.
How do restaurants make omelettes so fluffy?
The secret to making an omelette extra fluffy is whipping the eggs separately. The whipped egg whites and whipped egg yolks are folded together and cooked in low heat until it settles. The result is almost like a souffle.
Do you flip omelettes?
You can, but it is not necessary to do so. It is easier to flip omelettes with a light filling. If the filling is loaded or you are a beginner, we recommend using a flat spatula to fold half of it over the other.
