White square plate with a round omelette stuffed with creamy spinach.

Creamed Spinach and Bacon

Don’t be fooled by the photo, there’s nothing overly fancy about this one. But the photo is meant as a reminder that you can get creative with different methods of folding/stuffing an omelette.

This one is a perfect way to load up on some extra vitamins while masking it in a veil of tasty bacon and cream.

Whenever you’re making creamed spinach, it’s best to use the frozen stuff from the supermarket. Unless you want to see how quickly an entire bag of the fresh stuff will shrivel into nothingness when cooked.

This is all about the filling. Make the physical omelette in any style you like.

Amounts are not exact, just suggestions. These recipes are general guidelines roughly aimed towards single egg, individual portions unless otherwise mentioned. Adjust as necessary. Play around. Have fun.

Season everything to taste with salt and pepper.
