THIS is a great way to start the day! It will fill you up for hours!! It is full of protein and low in carbs, so if you are cutting out the carbs for the new year, this is a great go-to meal anytime of day! If you don't want to bother with the bacon, you can easily sub in ham, which is what I usually do simply because I can be a little lazy when making breakfast...especially on a weekday!
I'm not the best omelet maker. I have no idea why my omelets are less than stellar, but they do not measure up to Madison's omelets. I've watched her and know exactly how she works, but mine are still inferior looking. They taste almost as good though, so that is what counts!
Make the queso blanco up ahead of time. I recommend making a 1/2 batch, but you won't be disappointed if you make a full batch and freeze some of it. I have it on good authority that it thaws and reheats perfectly! This stuff really does take an omelet to a whole new level. I've even made just a plain omelet and poured some queso over it - yummmmm.
Ingredients (serves 1)
1 slice of thick cut bacon (or a slice of Virginia Baked Ham)
2 large eggs
splash of milk
a couple tablespoons cheddar cheese (or your favorite cheese. I like to use a slice of American sometimes)
Heat a non-stick skillet (about 9" skillet) over mid-high heat and cook 1 slice of bacon until desired doneness. While bacon is cooking, beat 2 eggs and the splash of milk (about 1/2 tablespoon) until well mixed. Remove bacon to a plate, blot dry, and cut into pieces. Drain off fat from pan and reduce heat to medium. Pour beaten eggs into skillet, sprinkle with bacon pieces (or ham), and let sit until it starts to set. Once the sides start to cook you can push them in towards the middle and let the uncooked part drain to the edges. Keep doing this until most of the egg mixture is set. If you want to speed up this process you can cover the skillet. Meantime, get your cheese ready and heat the queso in a microwave. Once the egg is cooked, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle with cheese and fold in half. Slide the omelet onto a serving plate and drizzle with queso. Enjoy!
