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

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
