Great way to use some leftover cooked potatoes. I doubled it to make omelet for two. The only thing that would make it more Irish would be to add some Dubliner Cheddar, which I will do next time. We had it for our "Breakfast for Dinner" night.

This recipe was made on 12/9 for my breakfast and most importantly the " Alphabet Recipe Tag " game. I had some leftover potatoes which had onions and bacon in them, which I thought would work pretty good in this recipe.Unfortunately I didn't have the fresh parsley or the chives, and had to use dried. I really enjoyed this omelet. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling : )"
