There are plenty of ways to cook eggs, but an omelet is perhaps one of the most essential. Start by melting some butter on a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Then pour the whisked eggs onto the pan and stir lightly using a rubber spatula. Once the egg mixture has set, flip it over and let it finish cooking until fluffy yet firm.
Add the pimento cheese to the center and top with red pepper jelly and cooked bacon. Fold the omelet in half and serve. If you have some eggs that are about to go to waste, this is one of many recipes that use a lot of eggs.
