    This was delicious, and it's so easy to make. After I snapped a photo, I cut the omelet into 4 equal wedges and served them with buttered toast. It was really good and we really enjoyed the recipe. Thanks, Baby Kato.

    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!
