IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelette

Since we always have a lot of eggs, we do breakfast for dinner quite often.  I serve eggs in a variety of different ways.  One of my absolute favorite ways is in an omelet.  While I often add vegetables to our omelets, my husband prefers his with no vegetables.

So, an omelette or omelet is a dish of beaten eggs that are cooked in a frying pan until done. They generally have a filling inside but filings vary from vegetables to cheese to meat like this IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelette. The origin of the word is French. But, it’s commonly used here in the US.

When I found this copycat recipe for IHOP’s Bacon Temptation Omelette in the Dining Out at Home Cookbook 2, I immediately knew that this was an omelet he would enjoy. Bacon and eggs are a family favorite in my family. It’s always fun to learn how to make your favorite restaurant treats at home especially when they are as delicious as this one.

How many carbs are in IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelette?

So, if you’re used to eating this at IHOP, you may be wondering about IHOP nutrition facts. So, there are 1080 calories in the IHOP version of this omelette. That breaks down to 70% fat, 6% carbohydrates, and 24% protein. This one is nowhere near that high.

So, can you make this IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelette keto? The answer is sort of. Eggs, bacon, milk, and cheese are all allowed on the Keto diet. So, that is not a problem. Unfortunately, what makes this IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelette unique is that it is more light and fluffy than a traditional omelette.

pancake mix

The secret to making this light and fluffy is the added pancake mix to the batter. Traditional pancake mix is not Keto. If you want to make this omelette truly Keto friendly, you need to add a Keto pancake mix. I’ve never tried it this way, so I cannot guarantee it will be the same. But, if you want it Keto, that’s what you need to do.

How many people does this omelette serve?

The cookbook says that this IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelette serves one person.  For us, it easily served two, especially when served with toast.  If you’re planning on making pancakes, waffles, toast or biscuits, I would say that this omelette can easily be shared by two people. If you want a low carb addition to serve with this omelette, you can try my pomegranate fruit salad recipe.

Tips for making an omelette so it doesn’t stick

I find the very best pan I have ever used to make an omelette is the Calphalon 10 inch omelette pan.  It never sticks and the sides make it super easy to fold.  When making your omelette, you want to look at the edges of the pan. When you see little bubbles, pull back the side of the omelette carefully and tip the pan so the excess egg mixture fills the hole. Continue doing that until there is no more liquid on top. Then carefully add the filling and fold. If you still struggle with making an omelette this way, you can try an omelette pan.
