Baked Bacon Omelette With Chives


This dish could be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, tea or supper! You choose when you'd like to tuck in. Remember, recipes can always be amended slightly if you have other preferred choices -  but I like it how it is!

Ingredients:
Serves One
3g carb per serving
2 eggs
5 oz. / 150 g bacon cut in cubes
3 oz. / 75 g butter
2 oz. / 50 g fresh spinach
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
Salt and pepper according to taste

If you love cheese, you might want to mix in some grated cheddar or sprinkle parmesan on top before baking. Sautéed onions are another yummy possible addition.
Please see cooking instructions at Diet Doctor site here


Chives ... The smallest and most delicate member of the onion family, chives are a popular herb used in European cookery. They have long, thin green blades that are hollow inside. They have a mild, grassy flavour similar to baby spring onions or young leeks. There is also an Asian variety of chive called Chinese chives, garlic chives or kuchai.

Buyer's guide:
Chives are in season in spring and summer. Fresh chives are widely available from supermarkets and garden centres. Do not substitute fresh chives for dried, as the finished dish will taste musty.

Storage:
Keep fresh chives refrigerated for up to three days.

Preparation:
Snip chives with scissors instead of chopping them, and do not subject them to much cooking as they are delicate. Instead, use chives in garnishes, salads, egg mayonnaise sandwiches, vegetable stocks, soups, creamy sauces, potato dishes and omelettes, adding the herb to the dish just before serving. Purple-blue chive flowers are also eaten and used as a garnish.


Hope you may enjoy this recipe suggestion soon ...

All the best Jan

I love baked dishes like this. I'll have to omit the bacon because I don't eat it but everything else is a go.

I had a garden full of chives in one of my previous houses. I miss having them ready at hand.

My Sue loves bacon and eggs but from a frying pan. This is perfect for her if I can "lose" the frying pan for a day or two.
