French Potato Omelet
(2 servings) Printable Version
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in parsley and salt and pepper.
Reduce stove-top heat to medium and pour egg mixture over the potatoes. When the eggs are almost completely set, carefully fold the omelet.
If you'd like to Americanize your French omelet, add a slice of American cheese, before folding.
Remove pan from heat and allow to set and finish cooking for one minute.
Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with additional parsley.
In France, this dish goes by the name "L'Omelette Parmentier" - a pretty fancy name for a basic potato omelet.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

I love it! It's my favorite breakfast. It's even better if you saute 2 Tablespoons of chopped onion in with the diced potato.

Sprinkle the omelet with Parmesan right before serving and it's perfect. Thanks!

I made it tonight and it was delicious. I added chopped garlic and pepper. Thanks for the recipe.

When I flipped mine, it didn't work properly, and it sort of collapsed. So I got frustrated and scrambled it. But, it makes a super delicious scrambled omelet!

I agree with previous comment... make sure the potato pieces are very small (they'll cook faster that way too). The simple flavors are so nice that you don't need any cheese.

Cut up the potatoes very small and make sure they're tender. Better to be tender than browned. If done right, this is a really good dish.

Loved it!! I didn't really miss the cheese, but I could see how it'd be good with cheese too... next time.

It was great - to spicy it up a bit I added some thin slices of green bell pepper, onions and instead of dicing the potatoes I made it thin flat slices. Yummy!!!

The potatoes weren't cooked by the time the eggs were cooked. Might want to precook the potatoes before pouring on the eggs. Also, instead of ruining it with American cheese, try Guyere or Brie -- delicious!

I thought I would mess it up because I'm 15 and not so good at cooking but it turned out good.

Very traditional, just like my Grande-Mere would make.
