Its been quiet around this blog for a bit. I spent a whole week and a half cooking various things that seemed like a good idea in my head. Most of them ended up being kitchen duds! A couple of recipes that worked were still lackluster. But then, this afternoon, I started thinking about making an omelette for dinner. Usually, when I get omelettes for breakfast, the hashbrowns are my favorite part! So when I figured I could work potatoes into my omelette, there was no turning back!
In my mind, potatoes just have an easy hold on people. I don't know what it is about them - but they are definitely a comfort food for me. So this recipe with eggs nicely balances the comfort and healthy factor.
This, like most recipes I like, can be modified as you like. Add more veggies to make it healthier or keep it originl with onions and potatoes.Herbs are a nice addition to this as well - you can go with whatever herbs you like. I added cilantro and basil.
