Method

 
Heat a small amount of oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook bacon, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp.

Break eggs into a bowl and lightly beat with a fork until just frothy.

Add water and seasoning and mix well.

Pour the egg mixture into the pan with the bacon. Allow to set and stir with a fork. The eggs must still be soft. Remove from heat.

Scatter the three cheeses over one half of the omelette and quickly fold over. Flip into a warm plate and serve immediately.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
