Cook Time:


  • 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/2 bag(s) red-skinned potatoes
  • 3 clove(s) garlic
  • 2 stalk(s) scallions
  • 8 whole(s) large eggs
  • 1/2 cup(s) shredded cheese
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon(s) fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) coarsley chopped tomatoes


  1. 1.Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch broiler-proof skillet over medium-low heat. Add potato, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and all but 1 tablespoon of the scallions; season with salt and pepper and cook 1 minute.

  2. 2.In a large bowl, beat eggs until well combined. Add 1/4 cup each tomato and cheese; stir to combine. Add remaining oil to pan, and pour egg mixture over the potatoes.

  3. 3.Preheat broiler with rack 4 inches from the heat. Meanwhile, cook eggs on the stovetop, lifting the edges to allow uncooked egg to flow underneath, until the center is almost set, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup cheese over the top, then broil in the oven until set, about 2 minutes.

  4. 4.In a small bowl, make a salsa by combining the remaining tomatoes, scallions, cilantro, and lime juice. Run a metal spatula around the edges of the pan and slide the omelette onto a platter. Serve cut into wedges with salsa.
