Potato and Vegetable Omelet (Bulgarian Style)

Potato and Vegetable Omelet (Bulgarian Style) created by NcMysteryShopper

I just love eggs and often eat breakfast for dinner. Came across this recipe on the Internet and decided to post it for the Zaar World Tour. This particular one is so loaded with good things, it's a one dish meal. Or you can serve it with a simple salad and a little garlic or peasant bread. The original recipe calls for 4 tablespoons of oil, but I'm planning to cut that in half.

  • Peel and cut the potatoes in 1/2 - 3/4 inch cubes. Cook in boiling, salted water for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  • While potatoes are cooking chop the onions and peppers, crush the garlic.
  • Heat half the oil in a large frying pan, add the onions and garlic, cook for 4 minutes, add the red pepper and peas, cook for 3 minutes then transfer to a plate.
  • Heat the remaining oil in the pan, add the potatoes and cook for 8 minutes stirring, add the onion mixture, sprinkle the parsley, and mix well with the potatoes.
  • Beat the eggs, add with the cheese and season with pepper to taste. Pour over the mixture evenly. Reduce the heat and cook for about 10 minutes or until the eggs are set.
  • This omelette works well either hot or served at room temperature.

    Great omelet and very easy to make. I personally love vegetables, so this is by far one of my favorite recipes to try. I made smaller versions, but the taste was still spectacular! I added a small amount of chopped chorizo sausage for a bit of kick as well. Great job Toni!

    made for zwt4, this is a great brunch or lunch dish. i parboiled the potatoes so they would cook quicker in the skillet and i also covered the pan so the eggs would set evenly. this sliced up well and is more like a frittata .

    I was really looking forward to this, and perhaps I rushed the recipe too much. There are quite a few steps! Basically, I found that even on the lowest setting, the bottom of the eggs burned and the top was still quite wet. Made for ZWT 4, European Union challenge.

    What a great omlette. It has beautiful colors, a delicious flavor combination and the eggs are delightfully moist while the potatoes remain browned and crisp. I added some zucchini and undoubtably used more cheese than called for. Normally I cut way back on the oil, but I didn't in this case. It was necessary to keep the potatoes from sticking and drying out. I did cover the pan as soon as I poured the eggs on and recommend you do as well, otherwise it takes too long and the potatoes get too dark. In fact, I used a spatula to cut the omlette and let the still-liquid egg seep down to the bottom after a few minutes.

    What a healthy breakfast! My kids liked all the colors. I had to use all the oil to keep my potatoes from sticking, and also covered when I realized it was going to be very crispy on the bottom before the top cooked. I ended up flipping it, but I think if it's covered right away that wouldn't be necessary. This omelet has lots of possibilities. Thanks!
