2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 leftover burger patty
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 eggs (cracked)
1 slice American cheese
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat a small saute pan over medium heat with olive oil. Add to the olive oil the leftover patty, and heat through while breaking up into small crumbles with a spoon or potato masher, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a small nonstick pan over medium heat, add butter. In a small bowl beat the eggs until frothy, set aside. Once butter slightly bubbles and then subsides, about 30 seconds, gently add the eggs and tilt the pan to spread the eggs into an even layer. Stir the eggs with a spatula until eggs are slightly set, about 30 seconds. Allow eggs to cook until edges are slightly set. Reduce heat to low and allow eggs to cook until set. Once the eggs have set, season eggs with salt and pepper, add the American cheese slices and top with the hamburger patty crumbles. Fold one half of the omelet over the other to create a half moon and serve immediately.
Tip: If your eggs are cooking too quickly, lower the heat to medium-low or low to ensure the bottom of the omelet doesn’t brown!
