A great way to use up leftover boiled, baked or mashed potatoes. I love omelets and separately whipping the egg whites makes this light and fluffy despite the inclusion of potatoes. In case you're wondering about taste - imagine a cross between a knish and a souffle. Other herbs or grated onions might be good variations.

Yuck. This is probably the worst omelet I have ever made. Whisking the egg whites until stiff? My hand is still sore, and it didn't happen. I suggest all of you use a mixer for that. Takes 3-5 minutes to cook? I don't know what super oven and pan y'all use but that wasn't the case for me. It gets 2 stars because I like the basic idea of this. but i will be changing almost everything else about this recipe. Very bland!
