Flat Top Bacon and Cheese Omelet

Flat Top Bacon and Cheese Omelet

By Mandy Tanner

Though this cheesy American-style omelet is delicious with just bacon, you can also add cooked vegetables of your choice, such as diced onion, pepper, or spinach. Similarly, feel free to sub the cheddar with another cheese, such as Swiss or American.

Steps

  • 1

    Preheat 1 zone on the flat top to medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, crack the eggs into a small bowl and whisk well to combine.

  • 2

    Drizzle or squirt about 2 tablespoons of oil over the hot cooktop and use a spatula to spread it. Add the bacon, season with 1 teaspoon of the Traeger Breakfast Rub, and toss to coat. Cook, tossing occasionally, until the bacon is cooked to your desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes for crisp.

  • 3

    Add half the beaten egg to the cooktop. Leaving some room between, add the other half of the eggs to the cooktop. Using two spatulas, gather each into a round shape. Season each with 1/2 teaspoon of Traeger Breakfast Rub, then top each with the cheese and cooked bacon. Cover with the steam dome and cook until the eggs have set, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • 4

    Remove the steam dome. Using the spatula, fold each omelet in half creating 2 half moon shapes.

  • 5

    Transfer the omelets to a serving dish and top with fresh chives, if desired. Enjoy!
