Description

Simple and hearty omelet with onions, potatoes, tomatoes and chives. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 cup Sliced Onions (for 1 Cup You'll Need About 1 Large Or 2 Small Onions)
  • 2  Medium Baking Potatoes, Thinly Sliced
  • 1  Large Tomato, Thinly Sliced
  • 6  Large Eggs
  • ⅓ cups Coarsely Chopped Chives
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preparation

Heat the oil and butter in an 8- to 10-inch nonstick oven-safe skillet until hot but not smoking. Add the onions and potatoes and cook, covered, for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to brown on all sides.

Spread the potato and onion mixture so it covers the bottom of the skillet. Add the tomato slices to the skillet, arranging them so they cover most of the potato and onion mixture. Cover and cook for 1 minute.

Meanwhile, break the eggs into a bowl. Add the chives, salt and pepper and mix with a fork.

Preheat the broiler. Add the egg mixture to the skillet and stir gently with a fork for about 1 minute so the eggs flow between the potatoes and tomatoes. Slide the skillet under the broiler, 3 to 4 inches from the heat, and cook for about 3 minutes or until the eggs are set.

Slide onto a platter, cut into wedges, and serve.

The whole family loved it. I added sliced peppers and spinach. It was perfect, and i used the oven instead of the broiler in order for the eggs to set all the way.

This was quite good! An easy summertime dinner but would also make a hearty breakfast or brunch. I used a 10″ skillet which worked perfectly. My eggs didn’t set the whole way through under the broiler so I popped in the oven for 10 mins at 350 with a lid on. Glad to have another recipe to use up the tomatoes we have coming out our ears!
