"This is a recipe I came up with trying to duplicate my favorite omelet from an old local Seattle restaurant called the Steak and Eggs. I usually use leftover potatoes and often times make this in the microwave with my microwave omelet maker."

Spray an 8-inch omelet pan or nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat.

Add potatoes to skillet. Heat until heated through. (Or microwave until heated through). Set aside.

Step 4

Pour eggs into skillet. (Eggs should set immediately at edges).

With an inverted pancake turner, carefully push cooked portions at edges toward center so uncooked portions can reach hot pan surface, tilting pan and moving cooked portions as necessary.

As I am eating low carb I did a google search for a substitute to the potato and two of the suggestions were zucchini and cauliflower and as I had heaps of zucchini I went with that otherwise made as per recipe and thoroughly enjoyed for breakfast thank you to Dienia b for the recommendation and to lazyme for posting the delicious recipe, made for Best of 21 tag game at FF&F.

I really enjoyed this tasty omelet Lazyme. It was quick and easy to throw together and it tasted excellent. The sour cream was a lovely addition and paired well with the eggs, green onions and potato. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. Made FYC Tag Game.
