This is a recipe I came up with trying to duplicate my favorite omelet from an old local Seattle restaurant called the Steak and Eggs. I usually use leftover potatoes from Pan-Browned Potatoes With Red Pepper and Whole Garlic and often times make this in the microwave with my microwave omelet maker.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs with water; season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Spray an 8-inch omelet pan or nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add potatoes to skillet. Heat until heated through. (Or microwave until heated through). Set aside.
  3. Pour eggs into skillet. (Eggs should set immediately at edges). With an inverted pancake turner, carefully push cooked portions at edges toward center so uncooked portions can reach hot pan surface, tilting pan and moving cooked portions as necessary.
  4. Spoon potatoes over half of the omelet. Spoon sour cream over the potatoes. Sprinkle green onions over the sour cream. Cook for about 30 seconds more. Slide from pan onto plate.
  5. Top omelet with a dollop of sour cream and green onions if desired.

I'm not crazy about eggs. I cook them really dry so they don't fold into omelets very well. I usually have to use a lot of hot sauce but I do love sour cream and onions, so this all came together well and was pretty good. Made for CQ 14. .

What is there not to love about sour cream n' onions ... AND potatoes ... in an omelette? Made these for lunch today and served with a salad alongside. Everyone loved their omelettes.
