Danika's Notes

This is a childhood favorite of mine…my grandma who was from Spain used to cook this all the time when we’d go and visit her.  It’s delicious, super easy and inexpensive!

  • 4 medium potaotes, peel
  • (1/4 the potatoes and thinly slice each 1/4)
  • 2 TBLS unsalted butter
  • 1 TBLS vegetable oil
  • small onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 scallions (optional)
  • 4 button mushrooms, chopped (optional)
  • 10 slices canadian ham, cut in small cubes
  • 12 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 - 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp pepper

Preparation & Directions

Heat oven to 400.  Melt butter in oil and butter in an oven safe large skillet (preferably non-stick) and add all ingredients except eggs, salt and pepper. Saute until golden, about 10 minutes.  Take off the heat and add salt & pepper.  Pour eggs over potatoes, stir around and immediately place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.  Let cool 20 minutes and the omelette should slide right out onto a flat surface. Once cool, cut into small squares for appetizers or cut like a pizza for a meal!  Some tricks with preparing this…if you have a cuisenart, it works great for all the slicing and makes that part go real fast.
