Quick Spanish Omelette

Today we’re gonna make a quick SPANISH OMELETTE! Most of you probably have no idea what this is so I’ll just say this…it’s delicious, has great macros, and you can reheat them so they’re great for meal prep!!!

First you’ll need an 8’’ pan. This one is perfect and was only 20 bucks. You could also double this recipe and use a bigger pan if you don’t have or don’t wanna buy a smaller one.

Now this step is optional, add in a little olive oil into your pan and once it heats up throw in some chopped up onion of your choice. Cook that until it’s tender. You could skip this part and just use raw onion if you’re lazy, both ways taste great.

Next take out a bowl and add into that 5 large eggs, 2 tablespoons of bacon bits, 1/4 cup of cheese, and your cooked or raw chopped up onion.  If you wanna add anything else in like seasonings or other vegetables do that now. Mix everything together. After that take out some sweet potatoes that you can microwave (the steamable bags work GREAT). Microwave them, chop one up into cubes, and lightly mix it in being careful not to “smoosh” it. Did I really just say smoosh?

Once that’s done pour your mix into your pan coated with olive oil over medium heat and let it cook for a few minutes. Every minute or so you’ll wanna circle a spatula around the edges to give it some shape. You’re ready to flip it when the outer edges look cooked/they don’t jiggle. The most important part here is to use a plate that fits around your pan. Place the plate over your pan and quickly flip it. Slide your omelette back into your pan and continue cooking for a couple minutes.

So there you go, you now have a quick Spanish omelette (or at least my rendition of it). One of my favorite things about this recipe is that you can cut it in half or into slices and use it for meal prep. Reheat it in the microwave for around a minute and you’re good to go.

What kind of things will you add into yours? Let me know in the comments below!

Tips:

  • Add whatever seasonings or vegetables you want into it!
  • Meal prep them! They reheat great in the microwave.
