Fresh Thyme and bacon omelette, with chevre

the perfect omelette

I am forever in search of a breakfast that will satisfy me until lunch. So far, the only successes have been full-fat yogurt with fruit and granola or an omelette.

I had made crustless mini quiche with bacon, thyme, and chevre a few years ago, and for some reason had the inspiration to make a single serving today.

I do not have the answer to perfect, fluffy, creations when it comes to producing an attractive omelette, if you do - please share!  It looks like scrambled eggs, but tastes like heaven.

single-serving omelette with fresh thyme, bacon, and chevre (I think this was originally a parade magazine recipe)

2 eggs
2 tsp water
3 pieces of bacon
1/4 of a small onion, chopped
1 tsp dijon
1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves, removed from stem (I have some outside!)
salt, pepper
crumbled chevre (amount to your liking, I used a nice handful)

1.  In the microwave, place slices of bacon on a plate, sprinkle onions overtop.  Cover with a paper towel and cook to your liking - I like crispy! Allow to cool, then crumble bacon and set bacon and onions aside, discarding the grease.
2.  In a small cup, whisk eggs, water, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper.
3.  Cook egg mixture in a small saute pan, using your choice of: oil, non-stick spray, or butter.
4.  Sprinkle bacon/onion mixture overtop.  Sprinkle chevre overtop.
5.  Once firm, fold omelette over itself, allow to finish cooking, then serve. 


  1. Oooh I love chevre...this looks lovely. Im about to pop some cinnamon rolls in the oven for breakfast but I may just give this a bash on the weekend...

  2. This looks great .. I want to try something new this weekend.

  3. Oooh I loathe chèvre! It looks lovely but I'd definitely have to substitute with cows milk feta.
