Quick and Tasty Omelet

Do you have a left over Baked Potato?  If so this is a great way to use it.


Folded Omelet

I small baked potato - cooled
3 eggs
1 Slice American Cheese
1 Slice Pepper Jack Cheese
1/ 4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
salt and pepper to taste

Peel off the skin of the cold baked potato and dice into small pieces.  Heat and pan and add oil.  When the pan is hot put the potato in and saute for a few minutes.  Add the Cumin and Garlic powder.  Stir or Flip the potatoes to cook.

Beat the eggs until light yellow and add 1 teaspoon of water or milk.  Water will make the omelet puffy and the milk will make it more tender.    Once the potatoes are hot pour the eggs in the middle of the pan.   LE the eggs start to set.  Then tilt the pan and lift up the edges with a silicone spatula to allow the eggs to run underneath.  Once the eggs are almost cooked add the cheese and place under a hot broiler until the omelet is cooked and starting puff up.  Remove the pan. Using the spatula, fold the omelet over and slice onto your plate.  Garnish with Salsa and sour cream.

You can also add some onions if you like.
