This recipe raises the bar on brunch menus. I used 2 leftover egg yolks from another recipe and a whole egg. I also dressed it like I do cheeseburgers adding mustard and pickled jalapenos. I didn t have leftover bacon or hamburgers so I cooked the bacon then the burger then the omelet all in the same pan. Wow! It was awesome. Just add a side of flapjacks and you re good to go for your brunch table. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
