In a frying pan, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and allow to cool. Chop the bacon into small bits and put aside. 

Beat the eggs, water, salt, and pepper in small bowl until blended.

Microwave butter in a 9-inch glass pie plate on high for 30 seconds. Tilt the plate to coat the bottom evenly with the butter. Pour the egg mixture into the hot pie plate. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, leaving a small vent for air. Microwave on high for 1 ½-2 minutes or until eggs have completely set, do not stir.

Place the cheese and bacon on one half of the omelette. Fold the omelette in half and serve immediately.
