    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    This came of the back of an Instant Mash packet. As I usually don't buy instant mash I use normal mashhed potatoes instead. Makes a great dinner or lunch and it's a good way to use up left-overs.

      This was delicious and very low-fat (that is, depending on how you make your mashed potatoes):D It reminded me of a Spanish potato omelet (which is usually very oily and uses more eggs). I used about 1/3 cup of low-fat cheddar cheese, and replaced the mushrooms with scallions, otherwise no changes. This time I used instant mashed potatoes, but I also usually make my own. My only recommendation is to watch it carefully under the broiler - mine came close to burning after 3 minutes. Thanks, will make this easy recipe again.
