Potato Omelet

Donna Brown


This is a good way to begin the day. It is very quick and full of flavor. This is one of my daughter's favorite omelets.

Stove Top


eggs or i use equivalent of egg beaters (beat eggs with a wire whisk or fork until mixed well)
medium potato, chopped into small pieces
cup chopped onion
cup chopped bell or banana pepper
tablespoon chopped garlic
cup chopped 98% fat free ham
slices cooked and chopped bacon pieces, optional
1/2 cup
shredded cheddar or monterrey jack cheese
small tomato, chopped
parsley; salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Spray omelet pan with cooking spray. Add about a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil; heat. Add chopped potato, onion, and pepper. Turn down heat to about medium. Cook until tender. Add garlic, ham (or bacon). Add beaten eggs; add cheese mixing well with egg mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste and cook on low about 5 minutes. Flip omelet over, cook until done, about another 5 or 6 minutes. Top with parsley and chopped tomato. Serve with English muffins, toast, or bagel. NOTE: My omelet pan is a vintage hinged 10x5 pan with a top that you just turn the entire pan over and not manually flip the omelet with a spatula. If you don't have any fresh tomato, salsa is a good topping for this, also.
