All American Omelet

What is the first image that came to your mind when you read that title "All American?" I would put money down that you conjured up a vision of sitting at a baseball game waving a blue and red pennant and munching on a hot dog. Or perhaps, you envisioned a succulent, steaming apple pie cooling in the window at your Grandmother's house. Or a giant slice of watermelon dripping down your child's hand as they run circles around the picnic table at your Fourth of July family reunion. Let me tell you what I see when I think of "All American:" I think of a hearty meatloaf served with a heaping bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy. Biscuits and sweet peas swimming in a pool of butter entice the family to the table with eager anticipation.

Your family's meatloaf recipe is a personal as a dish can get. Your meatloaf recipe was handed down from Grandparents passed...tweeked and rejuvenated to fit the liking of the individual member's of your own immediate family. It is the ultimate comfort food. The most requested birthday meal. One could argue that this is the meal that is sure to bring every member to the table with a smile.

Reader's, get your meatloaf on tonight. And tomorrow relive the whole experience again by putting it in an omelet.

Basic Omelet

Prepare your basic omelet. While cooking, warm up your leftover meatloaf, potatoes and gravy. Cut meatloaf into small bite size pieces. On the flip, add cheese, meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Fold and smother in gravy. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top. Let your favorite meal become your favorite breakfast!

Leftovers RULE!!!

My Review:
The ultimate guilty pleasure. Adding eggs and cheese to my already favorite meal took it to another level of satisfaction. The sheer size and depth of the omelet left me full and fat and sassy. Perfect for a lazy Sunday.
