Omelets...What's It Called?

I made breakfast one Saturday morning and decided to to the omelet route. I happened to find a few ingredients in the fridge so I decided to try it. Here is what I did:
One small onion, diced
One whole mushroom, diced
1 1/2 tbsp spinach, minced
One tbsp sharp shredded cheese
Two eggs
Two tsp water
Three slices of bacon cooked crunchy and chopped
About two tsp vegetable oil
About two tsp olive oil
Salt, pepper to taste
Paprika, to garnish

Take diced onion and place in a preheated saute pan on medium heat with a olive oil in the pan. Let the onions cook down about five minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook another two to three minutes. When mushrooms are cooked down and starting to feel softer, add salt and pepper to taste. If you need a measurement, about a teaspoon a piece, but season to taste. Add one tbsp of the spinach and stir. Remove from pan and set to the side.

Take two large eggs and crack them in a bowl. Add two tsp of water and whisk. Add vegetable oil to a preheated saute pan on medium heat. Pour egg mixture into pan. It should sizzle when it hits. 

Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on the the egg. Place mixture of onions, mushrooms, and spinach in the middle of the cooking egg. Place the bacon on top of the mixture. Then add the cheese. 

Carefully with a spatula take one end of the omelet and fold toward the middle of the mixture. Then with your spatula, go underneath the entire omelet and fold it over itself. It should look like a burrito. 

Remove from pan into your dish (NOTE: For Aesthetics I dusted my place with some paprika).  

Add a little more cheese over the top and the remaining amount of spinach over the top. I also took some remaining bacon and garnished the top.

Eat and enjoy!
