Breakfast needed to have more protein than usual. With four nights of basketball games in one week, the playa needed her strength! A perusal of the ‘frig inspired an omelet, but not just any omelet. There, awaiting its call to duty, was the container of browned ground beef prepared on “prepping the pantry” day. Also discovered was the large bag of shredded cheddar cheese. Sounds like a cheeseburger omelet to me!
So, here’s the recipe:
Put 3 eggs, 1/4 cup milk (or water like I did because I didn’t see the gallon of milk!!!), salt, and pepper in a small bowl and scramble. Melt 1 Tablespoon of butter in omelet pan and heat on high. Pour in egg mixture and cook, lifting up edges to let egg juice run under cooked part. After a couple of minutes, add ground beef and cheese. Turn down burner to medium high. Continue to lift edges and allow juice to run under cooked part until almost fully cooked.Fold in half and finish cooking until no juice runs out. Serve to a happy, hungry athlete or anyone ready for a protein-packed breakfast. (Oh, the calories will be burned off in the game, just in case you wondered.)
