Zaar gremlins gobbled up my first review! So here goes again! A really delicious omelette though I did make a few changes to meet personal taste preferences: zero tolerance of anything hot and spicy. I've often made omelettes with diced raw potatoes, and dubbed them - rather inelegantly - chip omelettes, so I was intrigued with the mashed potatoes in this. I made more mashed potato than I needed then, in a last minute decision to add some sliced mushrooms, ended up using considerably less than the specified amount of mashed potato. And I must say that mashed potato in an omelette: YUMMY! In place of the harissa and cilantro (which I was out of) I added sage, rosemary and basil. I'd placed some half dozen herbs on the kitchen bench and these were the three I ended up using. And I did use the parsley. The result was a truly scrumptious omelette, though to satisfy my curiosity, I will be making this again - with the correct ratio of potatoes and adding the egg to the potatoes rather than the potatoes to the egg, as I still rather wonder if this might not result in something more like a large potato cake than what we'd conventionally call an omelette. Thanks for sharing this really interesting recipe, Engrossed. I know that I'll be playing with it again!
