This Western Omelette is Stuffed full of potatoes, onions, green pepper, bacon and with two kinds of cheese. My husband cooked his potatoes and veggies on the grill before he made this wonderful omelette. (Vegetable link below) This is a great way to use up those leftover potatoes and vegetables from supper last night. You can use any cooked potato or vegetables you would like making it easy to make everyone’s favorite omelette!
Spray a large non stick frying pan with cooking oil.
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with 1-2 Tbsp water.
Heat the frying pan to medium low
heat and pour the eggs into the pan.
Salt and pepper the eggs.
Let the eggs cook until they are set and
you can use a spatula to loosen them
from the edge. Add the cooked potatoes
and veggies to the top third.
Add the cheddar cheese.
Loosen most of the egg and carefully
fold it on top of the potatoes and veggies.
Place the American cheese slices on top.
Remove the pan from the heat and cover
the pan with a lid until the cheese melts.
Slide the omelette onto a plate and serve.

Brilliant using leftover dinner vegetables in a breakfast omelet!
Thank you it makes for a quick meal because everything but the egg is already cooked.
Yummy and easy recipie. Thanks for Sharing I will definitely try..😊
This looks delicious!
Would love for you to check out todays blog post; butterfliesandboundaries.wordpress.com/2018/09/01/life/
Thank you this is my husbands creation!
I love omelettes! <3 <3
There are so many ways to fill them! My favorite is ham and cheese! Enjoy your long weekend Valerie!
You too! I am going to cook a Chicken Pot Pie. I have never made one before!
Good luck I’m sure it will turn out wonderful!
This is the only way I will eat eggs – in an omelette. Good reason to save some veggies from dinner the night before 🙂 Along with lamb kebobs I am grilling zucchini and red onions tonight …
Now that sounds good! Thanks!
A trick I learned while restaurant cooking, is to flip the eggs over after they set before adding the filling. This way the inside of the egg is guaranteed to be cooked and you won’t have to worry about a runny center 🙂
Wow – so when is your Cooking Book coming out? I mean you have like 3000+ followers – it is time to approach a publisher 🙂
I would have no idea where to begin! You are so good for my ego…lol
You can do it, think about it 🙂
This looks great. I love omelettes so I’ll be sure to try this out!
Thank you Rebecca!

Thank you Erica!
It’s 6AM here, and seeing this is making me hungry. Father’s Day in Australia – so guess what’s for breakfast.
Aw what a great Father’s Day surprise! You’re the best!
We used to eat a Western Sandwich with just deviled ham in the omelette/scrambled egg, in between toast. Maybe that was a Canadian treat?
OMG that sounds wonderful! I have never heard of this before. I love ham and cheese omelette but never thought about putting it in toast! Thanks something new to try!
I liked it – one can of deviled ham mixed in with the eggs. I’m not much of a cook, but maybe I could handle that. 🙂 (a one-can wonder)
Omelettes are the essential vehicle for eating leftovers. Delicious.
Definitely! Thanks Matt!
Yum! Such a wonderful recipe!
Thank you Lisa!
Hmm I should try that 🙂 Looks yummy
Great for leftover veggies! Thanks!
I love omelettes, but I have never put potatoes in them. I might have to add them next time.
I never have either, this is my husbands omelette. My favorite is ham and cheese and I have never tried any other. Guess I should spread my wings…hahaha
I usually make either ham and cheese, or Western.
Thank you Diane.
I am going to mine into your recipes for trying them myself.🌻
This recipe is something new for me to try… yummy 😋
Awesome I hope you enjoy it!
