"This frittata-style potato omelet, it's essentially fried mashed potatoes with some egg to hold it together. Those who are used to ham and cheese omelettes and the like may find this dish a little on the plain side. For those people, I recommend sprinkling some cheese on top i used instant mashed potatoes for this ,its a lighter potato cake , so would be a good side for breakfast thats easy"
