Open Face Omelette

I was never good at making a traditional omelette so I created this Open Face Omelette. Not only was it very easy but also very good! This is a simple breakfast with scrambled eggs on the bottom, hash browns on the eggs then top it off with cheese….so good! I served this with sausage patties on the side and what a great meal.

Cook, turning frequently, until golden brown

but do not over cook or they will get dry.

You do not want to let the potatoes clump

together so keep breaking them up.

When done, put the pan into a warm

(170 degree) oven to keep warm.

When the egg starts to set, use a spatula

and run it around the edges tipping the

pan so the liquid egg runs into the gap

you just made. Continue to do this

all around the edge of the pan

until no more liquid remains on top.

Remove from the heat.

It will still be a little wet on top

but that’s ok it will set.

Remove the hash browns from the

oven and use a spoon to place them on

top of the eggs. Use a spatula and press the

potatoes into the eggs.

  1. All of my omelets, over the years, have ended up either open-faced or as a mish-mash of scrambled egg with a lot of companion ingredients. Thankfully, they’ve always tasted good. This recipe looks worth trying, though I am not a huge hash browns fan.
