Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 8 tbsps (56 g) bacon crumbles*
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt (such as Lawry's)
  • 8 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, shredded, divided
  • 7 ounces Havarti cheese, shredded, divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a shallow, 2-quart baking dish by spraying with cooking spray.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil; saute bacon crumbles and green onion together until slightly softened; about two minutes. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine shredded smoked Gouda and Havarti cheeses together. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs, milk and seasoned salt until combined. Stir in 10 ounces of the cheese mixture (approx 2 full cups) and the bacon-onion mixture.
  • Transfer egg mixture to the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle egg mixture with another half cup of the cheese mixture before placing in the oven.
  • Bake, uncovered for 45-65 minutes. The omelet is done when the center springs back to the touch in the same way the sides spring back when touched. Cooking times will be dependent on your oven and the size/shallowness of the pan you use.
  • When the omelet is done to the touch, sprinkle with any remaining cheese and keep the pan in the oven until cheese melts; about 5 minutes.
  • Serve warm.

Notes

*Bacon crumbles are already fully cooked bacon in crumbled form. Bacon crumbles are not the dried out bacon bit version. The best bacon crumbles are the Kirkland brand from Costco. They work perfectly in this recipe. If you don't have access to bacon crumbles you can always fry up eight pieces of regular bacon (not too crispy) and chop into smaller pieces. You can use the bacon drippings to saute the green onion.
