I actually thought of this recipe when I noticed I hadn't used up my supply of bison jerky and I thought to myself that bison tallow can be used for any recipe involving a frying pan, including the most basic one of all: eggs!
Of course, there are several ways to make eggs but the one that came to my mind was an omelette and I've heard of meat being in omelettes but jerky? Not so much- until now!
Making an omelette is fairly easy except for the fact it's super hard to flip over- it's like folding a crepe, which I've never done before. The omelette tasted a little runny but it wasn't bad considering this was my first attempt at making one!
The only way my dad knows how to cook an egg is to scramble it, but it's not as aesthetically pleasing as an omelette, even though it's much simpler. I honestly thought my dad was going to try the omelette, but then he told me he doesn't like jerky(it's a textural issue to him) so that put the kibosh on that hope.
This recipe tastes great with ketchup and raisin bread, which counterbalances the savoriness of the omelette!

You will need:
For the cooking equipment:
A small bowl
A frying pan
For the omelette:
1 oz. bison jerky(see HELPFUL LINK)
1 tsp. buffalo wing seasoning
2 slices American cheese(optional)
Serve with ketchup and raisin bread(optional)
1. Break the bison jerky into small pieces.
2.. Beat the eggs in a small bowl and whisk the eggs. Add the buffalo wing seasoning to whisked eggs and then whisk again.
3. Put bison tallow into a frying pan. Turn the stove on and using a fork, melt the tallow by coating it throughout the pan as it melts.
4. Once the tallow is fully melted, pour the whisked eggs in. Let the eggs cook until they're firm on the outside but still runny on top. To test to see if the eggs are firm, put the underside of a spatula under the eggs. If it's liquidy, it's not done yet.
5. Once the eggs are firm on the outside but still runny on top, pour the bison tallow pieces in and flip the omelette over once the eggs are bubbling. Let the omelette cook on the other side until it's no longer runny.
6. Fold the omelette and put it onto a plate.
7.(optional) Break apart 2 slices of American cheese into pieces and top the omelette with the cheese. Serve with ketchup and raisin bread.
