Quick Country Omelet

Quick Country Omelet
This is a favorite of my kids. It is a quick and easy fare to make and can be served any time of the day. The onion is a very important ingredient. It adds a lot of flavor to the omelet. Serve it with a slice of country bread and fruit. Big kids love it too.
INGREDIENTS ( serves 2)
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 1 medium size Yukon gold potato
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 c of canola oil

  1. Scramble the eggs and set aside.
  2. Wash the potato and coarsely chop it into small bite size pieces.
  3. Coarsely chop the onion.
  4. Heat the oil in a medium size skillet over medium/high heat. When the oil is hot, careful add the potato.
  5. Cook the potato until all the sides are a golden brown. Stir frequently to ensure the potato doesn't burn.
  6. Add the chopped onion and cook until the edges start to brown. The onion will be very fragrant.
  7. Pour off the excess oil. Turn the heat down to medium/low.
  8. Carefully fold the scrambled eggs, making sure they cover the potatoes and onions.
  9. Once the eggs set, turn the omelet over and finish cooking
