Italian-Style Omelette with Bacon, Spinach and Goats' Cheese


  • 1-2 tablesp. oil
  • 50g bacon, diced
  • 1 red pepper, de-seeded and chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 handfuls spinach, finely chopped
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tablesp. basil, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 75g-100g goats' cheese, broken into pieces


Heat a large non-stick pan. Add the oil and sauté the bacon, pepper, onion and garlic together for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the spinach. Remove from the heat. Set the grill to high. Beat the eggs in a large bowl with the basil and seasoning. Add the bacon mixture to the eggs, stir well. Reheat the pan, pour the mixture into the pan and over a medium heat cook until just set – giving it the odd stir. Crumble on the goats' cheese and finish cooking under the grill.
