Potatoes have got to be my all time favorite food. I’ll eat any type of spud, in just about any preparation. I can’t say the same about eggs though. I don’t especially love omelettes, (I prefer sunny side up) but because these have potatoes in them, I kind of forget about it. You can use any type of potatoes in these, or even some leftover french fries. Top it off with your favorite baked potato toppings like sour cream, salsa, chives or cheddar cheese for the authentic baked potato experience!
Loaded Baked Potato Omelette
1 russet potato
salt and pepper, to taste
toppings of choice (chives, sour cream, salsa, cheddar cheese)
Heat up a frying pan with cooking spray. In the meantime, scrub the potato to remove dirt. Dry the potato and slice into rounds. Beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Add the potatoes to the pan and cook until softened and browned. Flip the potatoes over and pour in the eggs. When eggs are browned and set, flip the omelette over and cook on the opposite side. Remove from pan and garnish with desired toppings.

Thanks Faygie, that’s a huge complement coming from someone as creative as yourself! I really enjoy seeing what you knit and your great scrapbooking ideas. I’ve done some scrapbooking too and I really enjoy it!
This is definitely my kind of omelet! I also love potatoes in any form and am not normally into lots of eggs. But this looks great, especially with the baked potato toppings.
I like omelets, but never end up making them, this looks nice and easy and my kids would love it. I wouldn’t use leftover french fries though, don’t think that would taste as good.
I have to agree on the french fries, I like my food fresh, but it may work for some people! :)
Looks so delicious and simple. Kinda like eating your eggs and hash browns, but all in one yummy bite!
Oh my! Eggs and potatoes, that is comfort food, right there! Looks delish!
this reminds me of a fritata. Totally agree with Melinda it’s like a one pan complete breakfast. I love! eggs and potatoes love me so I love this idea bring it on!
This reminds me of a tortilla espanola with the potatoes mixed in with the eggs. I love the idea of topping it with baked potato toppings.
I don’t know what that is, but if it’s Mexican, I love it. I’m a sucker for Mexican food!
I also love potatoes! This is such a great way to incorporate them into a breakfast dish, that isn’t traditional home fries etc! Looking forward to trying it out!
