After making the English Muffin Cheeseburgers and hubby and I devoured them, we had a lonely little hamburger patty leftover. It was morning and I really didn’t feel like another burger, much less for breakfast, but I didn’t want that to go to waste, so what was a girl to do? Throw it in some eggs with bacon and cheese for a delicious omelet. Think of a bacon cheeseburger, with a dollop of ketchup rolled into an omelet. This was one very filling and satisfying breakfast.
Here’s what you need.
This was for one serving, but you can double to make more
*1 cooked hamburger patty
*2 tsp. butter
*2 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
*1/4 cup shredded cheese + more for on top of the omelet
*salt and cracked pepper to taste
Heat the burger patty in the microwave or in a small pan just until warm and chop into small pieces; set aside.
Heat a medium pan over medium heat and melt butter. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs and pour into the pan; add salt and pepper to taste.
Let the eggs sit for a minute then using a silicon spatula, lift the edges of the egg while tilting the pan to allow the uncooked portion of the eggs to run to the edges of pan.
When the eggs begin to become firm, add the burger patty pieces on top of the egg.
Then sprinkle on the cheese.
Next add the bacon, trying very hard not to eat it all before it goes onto the egg, then add a few dollops of ketchup.
This is optional, but I like ketchup on my burger and some like it on eggs, so I thought why not add it inside.
Carefully fold the egg in half over the meat mixture and carefully slide it onto a plate. Sprinkle some more of the cheese on top.
Serve and Enjoy!
