The IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelet is perfect for bacon lovers. This omelet from the IHOP is packed full of bacon.
The IHOP is the restaurant to go to when you want to enjoy your breakfast any time of day. They are known for their buttermilk pancakes. They make so much more than just pancakes. They make some of the most creative omelets around. If someone likes bacon, this is the right breakfast treat for them.
The IHOP uses one not so traditional ingredient in their omelets. They add a little pancake batter to their omelets to make them light and fluffy. If you are making this recipe in your own house, and you need to be gluten-free you can omit the pancake batter from the recipe. I think it does help if you use the pancake batter to get it just right, you can use my recipe for the buttermilk pancakes, if you are making the pancakes, if not, it will work well if you use some pancake dry batter.
For this recipe, you will need eggs, crisp-cooked bacon, American cheese, milk, dry pancake batter, and shredded cheese. You may want to cook the bacon in the oven so you get the bacon strips in long strips. The Amercian cheese is crucial in making a perfectly smooth cheese sauce which is a critical part of this recipe. This is best made on an electric griddle if you have one at home. If not, you can use a large pan to prepare this omelet.
No doubt about it, the bacon lovers will rejoice in your house if you prepare this amazing omelet. This is hearty enough to enjoy for any meal of the day!

Preheat a griddle or skillet to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the American cheese with 1 tablespoon of the milk. Stir constantly, the cheese will melt and form a cheese sauce. When the cheese sauce forms reduce the heat as low as you can.
In a medium bowl combine the eggs, bacon pieces from 4 slices of bacon, pancake batter, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of milk. Whisk vigorously until well blended. Spray the griddle with nonstick spray and pour the omelet over in a rectangular shape. As the eggs cook they will form up. When the eggs are almost done pour over half of the cheese sauce onto the eggs.
