Bacon, Cream Cheese and Green Onion Omelet

Here's a great recipe for breakfast or brunch. My mom gave me this recipe years ago and its been one of those you keep on the "list", at least in my case! The "list" consists of recipes that are so delicious you make on a regular basis. Put this on your "list" too!
The flavors all combine and do a little dance number in your mouth. You'll be thinking happy thoughts with every bite!
12 Inch Non-Stick Skillet With Lid
1 Tablespoon of Butter
2 Tablespoons of Milk or Cream
6 Jumbo Eggs
2 Large Green Onions, Chopped
5 Pieces of Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled
8 Ounce Pack of Cream Cheese (you'll have some leftover)
Heat skillet on medium low heat. Add butter.
While butter is melting, crack eggs into large bowl, add milk and a dash of salt and pepper. Beat with a wire whisk until nice and aerated.
By this time the butter should be melted. Add beaten eggs to skillet. Add a few of the chopped green onions reserving enough to sprinkle on the top of the finished omelet.
Cover skillet with lid and let cook, checking often for the egg to be set, 5-10 minutes depending how high the fire is.
While this is cooking, open package of cream cheese and cut 6 thin slices, set aside.
Once the omelet is set, which means all of the egg will be cooked and it will be firm to the touch. Turn off heat.
Add slices of cream cheese to one half of the omelet and sprinkle bacon over the cheese, save a small amount for the top of the omelet.
Very carefully fold the other half of the omelet over the half with cream cheese and bacon. I like to use my fingers to do this part.
Transfer to plate using a wide spatula. Sprinkle remaining green onion and bacon on top.
Time to eat!

Chop the green onions.

Fry up bacon.

I used an 8 cup measuring cup to beat the eggs.

You want to be able to really beat well to incorporate air.

Make sure butter is nice and melted.

 Almost finished!

After your omelet is cooked, add sliced cream cheese and crumbled bacon.

Fold carefully, you don't want it to break!

Served with a few orange slices.

My husband has quite the appetite!
