Unusual and tasty!!! Made exactly as directed in my cast iron skillet. It tastes kind of like a light, fluffy quiche. I topped it with a little shredded cheddar after putting it under the broiler and let it sit for a couple minutes to let the cheese melt. A delightful way to have breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.
I didn't have any leftover mashed potatoes, so quickly sauteed a baby red potato, then added rest. Yummy, topped with ketchup, loved the lemon in it. Thanks!
I believe that I used too much of the mashed potatoes as mine was a bit dry. I also sprinkled on some marble cheddar cheese because the omelette kind of fell apart when I flipped it. So, besides my mistakes with this recipe, it did have a nice flavour and I would attempt it again! Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Baby Kato!
