White and brown plate with an omelette stuffed with cheeseburger filling.

Cheeseburger Omelette

When I told my wife I was doing a cheeseburger omelette she was skeptical. I was skeptical. I love a cheeseburger as much as the next person but something about eating one as an omelette didn’t sit right.

Until I tried it. I’ve been crushing out omelettes for a long time now and have tried some interesting flavour combinations. But every once in a while I’m still surprised.

It tasted like I was eating a cheeseburger for breakfast but still felt as though I was eating breakfast. As weird as it should have felt, it didn’t.

This is simply a damn tasty omelette.

This is all about the filling. Make the physical omelette in any style you like.

Amounts are not exact, just suggestions. These recipes are general guidelines roughly aimed towards single egg, individual portions unless otherwise mentioned. Adjust as necessary. Play around. Have fun.

Season everything to taste with salt and pepper.

Disclaimer: Though unlikely, eating undercooked eggs can cause illness.
