Apple, Bacon, and Blue Cheese Omelet Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Apple, Bacon, and Blue Cheese Omelet which belongs to the Eggs and Dairy recipe category.
- 3 slices bacon
- Granny Smith or other crisp, tart apple, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons butter, divided
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 ounce (30 g) crumbled blue cheese
Start the bacon cooking in the microwave?if you don't own a microwave bacon rack, a glass pie plate will work just fine.
(In my microwave, 3 to 4 minutes on high is about right, but microwave power varies.
) While the bacon's cooking, melt 1 teaspoon of butter in your omelet pan over medium-high heat.
Add the apples and fry for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until they're slightly golden.
Remove the apple slices and keep them on hand.
Melt the remaining butter in the skillet, spread it about, and make your omelet according to Easy Omelet Method (page 82), using nonstick cooking spray if necessary.
Arrange the fried apples on half the omelet, top with the blue cheese, cover the pan, and turn the heat to low.
Go check on that bacon! If it needs another minute, do that now, while the cheese is melting.
Then drain it and crumble it over the now-melted blue cheese.
Fold and serve.
