This is a Tanzania specialty: chips are placed at the bottom of a skillet, then whisked eggs are poured over it and the whole thing is cooked together until it's a solid omelet. My husband taught in Tanzania for a short while, and raved about this dish. I didn't realize how tasty it was until he asked me to make up a large batch of these for his students as part of celebrating International Day at their school. This is a variation that allowed me to make a large amount of omelets in a short period of time. It's not exactly the same, but my husband assured me the taste was very similar and the kids loved it. I garnished the plates with fresh sugar cane and each kid got a cup of mango juice.
My Private Note
- 1Bake the french fries and then turn off the oven. Keep them inside the oven so they stay warm. You could also heat them up in the microwave or even use a deep fryer, if you'd prefer.
- 2Whisk the eggs.
- 3Preheat a skillet on medium heat.
- 4Pour the whisked eggs in the skillet and swish them around to coat the bottom, just like you're making a regular omelet.
- 5When the omelet is nearly completely cooked, put the fries on one side, and fold the omelet over it.
- 6Cook for about 10-20 second more, then remove from the skillet onto a plate.
- 7Serve with salt, pepper, and ketchup.
