Egg Omelet Recipe with #JDCrumbles

#spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Jimmy Dean. This could include Jimmy Dean providing us w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.

There is no secret that I love breakfast. I remember how my great grandmother placed me on a high chair, letting me watch her to cook huge breakfast for the family. I would eat the plate clean!

For years I have tried to master at cooking egg omelet but failed so miserably time and time again. Then one day something clicked and I would have to let the pan really hot with a tsp of butter on it, melting away!

Omelets are so versatile. I can put any toppings inside the omelet. What I love in omelet are extra cheese, green peppers, chopped ham, chopped onions, etc. Sausage is what I absolutely love in an omelet but I loathe breaking them up in other pan. Thank god for Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles. It couldn’t come at a better time!

I got my pan on the stove at medium high heat and put a tsp of butter (or olive oil) and wait for it to melt. Meanwhile, I beat 2 eggs with a bit of milk and lot of seasonings (garlic powder, onion powder, etc)

Now I pour the egg mixture onto the pan and let it sit for a minute. I use a small spatula slide the edge around the pan, so it won’t stick. I then put shredded cheese when the egg is halfway through and then put Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles.

When the egg is done, to fold them is how I use the spatula and then flip to the other side so they get to cooked through.

This is exactly how I like my eggs, a little bit runny with lot of cheese and sausage crumbles. It is so delicious!
