Peanut Butter & Bacon Omelette

I get it, this one totally sounds like stoner food. Even that photo looks a little psychedelic. But I assure you that no weed gummies were harmed in the making of this omelette.

This was a completely sober invention that came from the trend I’ve seen involving peanut butter and bacon on burgers. And while I’ve yet to try that myself, the flavour combination piqued my interest.

To my partial surprise, this omelette is delicious, though maybe a little messy.

The chilli crunch is optional but gives an extra dimension that helps.

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.
