It takes ten minutes to bake bacon at 400 degrees F. The same time to bake a nice omelet in a cast-iron skillet along with it.

All it takes to make a pan-baked omelet is some eggs, some butter, and some seasoning. The amounts and proportions don't really matter. Experiment. Don't use milk or cream. All it does is make the eggs bland.

For this one I used three large eggs, a tablespoon of soft butter, a handful of shredded mozzarella, and Trader Joe's South African Smoke Seasoning Blend. Mixed it together like a scramble, poured it into an oiled Lodge skillet, and set it next to the bacon. When done, loosen with a spatula and slide it onto the plate.

This was a firm omelet about as done as a regular fried egg. For softer moister omelets, or fewer eggs, the bake time or temperature should be lower. The larger the pan, the thinner the omelet will be, so the time or temperature should be lowered accordingly.
