Hearty Farmer’s Omelet

Apr 29, 2010Family Uncaged

3 large potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 cup chopped green onion
2 Tbs. butter
1/2 tsp. Cavendar’s Greek seasoning (Or use your favorite seasoning salt to taste.)
5 eggs, scrambled
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cubed ham or Canadian bacon
1 Tbs. parsley
1 tsp. basil
1 cup shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese

Place cubed potatoes in microwave-proof bowl and add 1/2 cup water. Cover with saran wrap and microwave on high for 3-5 minutes until potato cubes are tender. Drain excess water. Melt butter in large heavy (and ovenproof) skillet and add green onions. Cook on medium high heat and stir until cooked through, about three minutes. Add potatoes and Cavendar’s seasoning and brown them, ten minutes. Place potatoes in bowl and cover with foil to keep warm.

Combine eggs, salt and pepper, cheese, ham, parsley and basil. Pour into potato skillet. Cook omelet style, occasionally poking holes in it, so the top part becomes solid. Spread potato mixture over the top and then sprinkle with provolone or mozzarella cheese. Place whole pan under the broiler until cheese melts and becomes brown. Serve in pie wedges. Serves 4 hungry breakfast eaters.
