Peanut Butter Omelet with Candied Bacon: This might sound crazy, but with a few tips and tricks this omelet is ridiculously delicious. The key is some perfectly candied bacon!

Ingredients

2 strips bacon, chopped
1 tablespoon jam
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
Salt
Scallions, garnish

Directions

  1. Add chopped bacon to a small omelet skillet over medium-low heat. Cook until bacon is browned and getting crispy. Drain off most the bacon grease, reserving about a teaspoon for later. Add jam to the skillet and stir together with the bacon. Let bacon continue to cook for a minute or two so the jam glazes on the bacon.
  2. Remove bacon and let cool. Wipe out skillet well.
  3. Return skillet to medium heat. Add reserved teaspoon of bacon grease. Whisk eggs well and pour into the skillet. Let cook for about 2 minutes on the first side until the eggs are mostly set. Carefully flip eggs so the second side can cook.
  4. After the omelet is flipped, add candied bacon to one side of the omelet and drizzle peanut butter over it. Season with a pinch of salt.
  5. Fold omelet over in half and slide onto a plate.
  6. Serve omelet immediately with scallions and possibly an extra drizzle of peanut butter.

NOTE ON PB: Use a good quality peanut butter that’s creamy but has no added sugar. It should be thin enough to be pourable. If your peanut butter seems too thick, add a teaspoon of water to about 2 tablespoons of peanut butter an microwave it on high for 15 seconds. That should thin it out.
