Roasted Red Pepper, Bacon, and Onion Omelet Roll

The omelet roll was served this morning at the Avenue Hotel Bed and Breakfast with a side of sausage. After zucchini muffins and apple crisp both  prepared with fresh picked produce, zuc's from our garden and apples picked yesterday from our daughters trees in Canon City.


8 eggs
1 cup of 1/2 & 1/2
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
5 strips of bacon cooked and crumbled
1 onion chopped and sauteed in butter
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Roast a red pepper, peel and dice. I roast a pepper over the flame on the burner on my stove top. Turning until it is black and roasted all over. Place it in a bowl with plastic wrap over the top and let it cool, then peel, seed and dice.

Preheat oven to 450^.  Beat eggs and 1/2 & 1/2 until fluffy. Add flour, salt and baking powder and beat until smooth. Pour into a 13 x 9 baking pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake until eggs are just set about 6 -7 minutes. Sprinkle bacon, onion, red pepper and cheese evenly on top. Bake about 5 minutes until cheese is melted. Starting from the long side, roll up the omlet while still in the pan. Place the seam down. Cut into slices.
