Montana Omelet

"We tried this omelet a few nights ago for dinner and really enjoyed it. It's loaded with potatoes, meat and onions. We made this with leftover ham, green onions, and a 4-blend cheese for a hearty and filling omelet. I'm guessing that it would be good with all kinds of variations too. From the Marlboro Country Cookbook."

  1. its filling mr picky liked it ,no sour cream , he doesnt like that lol made for best of 2014 tag he had bacon
  2. What a wonderful dish! It is much like a tortilla de patata (Spanish tapa), which we are extremely fond of. We made it with the salami, but I can see any meat working, and would be curious how the jerky would turn out - different, but good, I imagine. Like Breezer, I increased the potatoes by 50%, since we love 'em, and omitted the cheese (dietary reasons - but honestly, it doesn't even need it). I think this sums it all up: DH kept saying during and after dinner "the bomb!".
  3. Delicious! I used ham for the meat, and increased it to a cup and the potatoes to a cup and a half. Added a couple of more eggs so I'd have a giant omelet. After all, I am feeding a 23 year old boy/man. He got 3/4 and I got 1/4. Delicious dinner for us tonight. Served with sour dough toast. Thanks for sharing! Made for "For Your Consideration' game on Yuku.
  4. Yummy!!! I made this for my lunch today, using ham for the meat and refrigerated hash browns for the potatoes. Then followed the rest as written for one serving. This is so simple and quick, great to serve for any meal. I wasn't sure how I would like the sour cream topping on eggs and I loved it!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for your win on the Super Bowl (Football Pool Game).
  5. Oooops, mine got a bit dark on the bottom but not dark enough to keep it from being delicious. I used Eggbeaters, lean ham and fat free sour cream and far free cheese and enjoyed dinner very much. It was great with just some orange wedges on the side. Yummm! Made for PAC, Fall '09.
