Bacon omelettes are perfect for any meal!
The IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelette is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even dinner. This bacon and cheese-filled omelette is hearty enough to carry you through the day and makes a great dinner.
One Special Ingredient in the IHOP Omelettes
The IHOP uses one not-so-traditional ingredient in their omelettes. 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 buttermilk pancakes if you are making pancakes. If not, it will work well if you use some pancake dry batter.
To Make This Keto and Low Carb Friendly
The IHOP keto menu may not be super large, but you can always ask for modifications to your food there. Ask them to omit the pancake batter. You can eliminate the pancake batter and this trims back the carbs considerably. The net carbs are reduced to 13.4 carbs for the whole recipe.
Here’s a list of what you need:
- American cheese
- Pancake batter (optional)
- Monterey Jack cheese
You may want to cook the bacon in the oven so you get the bacon in long flat strips.
American cheese is crucial in making a perfectly smooth cheese sauce which is a critical part of this recipe. My favorite American cheese is Land O Lakes, which you can buy in the Deli section of your local grocery store, don’t worry if you can’t buy that brand, you can buy another brand of cheese to make this bacon and cheese omelette.
How to Make an IHOP Omelette with Bacon
- Cook bacon until crispy. Cut bacon into pieces.
- Preheat a griddle or skillet to 350 degrees.
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the American cheese with milk, stirring constantly.
- When the cheese has melted, reduce heat to low.
- In a medium bowl combine, eggs, bacon pieces, pancake batter, and milk. Whisk vigorously until well blended.
- Spray the griddle with nonstick spray and pour the egg mixture on it in a rectangular shape.
- When the eggs are almost done, pour half of the cheese sauce onto the eggs.
- Roll the omelet into a roll and transfer it to a plate.
- Top the omelet with shredded cheese and bacon.
- Serve the omelet with the remaining cheese sauce on the side.
What to Cook Omelettes On
It’s easy to make this bacon omelette on a griddle. But if you don’t have a griddle, grab your largest non-stick skillet, and you can make copycat IHOP omelettes at home.
If you don’t have either one of those, I find that a seasoned iron skillet will also perform beautifully.
No doubt about it, bacon lovers will rejoice in your house if you prepare the IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelete. This is hearty enough to enjoy for any meal of the day!

can you substitute paleo pancake batter
I don’t know, I haven’t tried it, but I think this recipe would work without any pancake batter.
This bacon omelette is so delicious! I love that it’s keto friendly and that it’s easy to make.
Thank you! Tasted like it did at IHOP!
Stephanie, thank you!
Perfect for those who love bacon! My son’s loved it.
Really enjoyed this breakfast. It’s great for keto.
Gosh! I’ve been craving for this since Monday. Now is the best day to make one following this recipe you’ve shared! You’re amazing!
My husband loved this bacon treat! He wants more IHOP recipes.
This dish is delicious and rich in nutrients
The article you have shared here is very awesome. I really like and appreciate your work. The points you have mentioned in this article are useful. I must try to follow these points and also share others.
will make..we are bacon lovers.however will never use processed american cheese..maybe a good cheddar,or other real cheese..
I worked at ihop and they use white cheddar cheese sauce. We cut up actually white cheddar slices I would recommend this for an authentic taste.
Sounds good but probably a day’s worth of calories. Six slices of bacon in one meal?
I agree it may not be for everyone. The beauty of cooking at home is if you wanted to turn this into an egg white omelet with a sprinkling of turkey bacon, and a whiff of sprinkled cheese you could exactly that using this as a guide for the base recipe.
6 slices – We’re just getting started there. That’s hardly a taste 🙂
how much pancake batter?
Hi Stephanie, is it 2 tablespoons of Dry pancake mix, or is it 2 tablespoons of pancake mix you already mixed with water/milk (according to a recipe or a store-bought pancake mix instructions)? Thank you! 🙂
This is pancake batter that you have made from adding the liquid to the pancake mix.
Looks delish ….
