  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey bacon to the pan and cook the bacon for 5 minutes, turning it occasionally with a small spatula or fork until it is crisp.
  3. Step 3

    Once the turkey bacon is cool enough to handle, crumble it into small pieces, and set it aside.
  4. Step 4

    Reduce the heat to low, and in the same skillet, cook the onion for about 10 minutes stirring them often. Continue cooking the onions until they are soft and caramel colored. Remove the onions from the pan and set them aside.
  5. Step 5

    In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, egg whites, milk, and the black pepper until all of the ingredients are uniformly combined. 
  6. Step 6

    Heat the skillet over medium-high heat again, and coat the pan with cooking spray. Pour the entire egg mixture into the pan, coating the entire bottom of the pan.
  7. Step 7

    Allow the egg mixture to cook for 2 minutes, until the bottom of the egg mixture has formed a firm cooked skin. 
  8. Step 8

    Next, sprinkle the bacon, onion, and cheese on one half of the omelet.
  9. Step 9

    Then, using a spatula, fold one end of the omelet over the other, enclosing the bacon, onion, and cheese inside.
  10. Step 10

    Continue cooking for 2 more minutes, until egg is fully cooked through the entire omelette. Pay attention to the inside of the omelet to make sure that the egg cooked completely.
  11. Step 11

    Once the omelet is finished cooking, slide the omelet onto a plate. 
  12. Step 12

    Serve it immediately while it is still hot.
