"Cheesesteak" omelet

Serves 1

2 large eggs
1T butter
1 steak-ummms or other finely sliced steak
1/2 a small green bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
3 green onions, sliced
1 slice provolone, meunster or whatever cheese you like (about 3/4oz by weight)

Melt 2tsp butter in a non-stick skillet and saute the onions, peppers and steak, breaking up the steak as it cooks.
While you're doing that, beat the eggs and add salt and pepper (not listed, add to taste).
When the veggies are tender-crisp and the steak cooked, remove from pan and add the remaining butter.
Pour in the eggs and cook for 2-3 minutes until mostly set, then add the meat and veggies back in, top with the cheese and fold over as an omelet.
Turn off the heat, put a lid on the pan and let it sit 2 minutes to finish cooking.
Slide onto a plate and enjoy.
You can add another slice of cheese on top when you put the lid on, if you like.

Thank you. I just got a large box of sandwich steaks from a box store and had been googling what to do with them. This sounds like a nice change from pork sausage and fried eggs for breakfast! I'm trying them as "tortillas" to roll around chicken enchiladas tonight. Should be interesting!
