Packed with potatoes and onions, this Spanish omelet is much more than an ordinary egg dish. Add some lean ham for extra flavor.*

Ingredients

uncooked potato(es)

3 medium, baking-variety, peeled, thinly sliced**

egg(s)

3 large

egg white(s)

3 large

table salt

tsp, or to taste

black pepper

tsp, or to taste

canola oil

1½ Tbsp

uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, chopped

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook for 5 minutes (potatoes should be about halfway done); drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper; set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and potatoes; cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Spoon potato mixture into egg mixture; mix thoroughly.
  5. Reheat skillet over medium-low heat. Add potato-egg mixture and let cook for 2 minutes. Flip and cook on other side until eggs are set, about 2 minutes more. Slice into 6 pieces and serve. Yields 1 piece per serving.

Notes

*Could affect SmartPoints values. **Use a food processor if possible. If you have trouble flipping the eggs, slide them out onto a plate and then carefully place the pan on top of the plate; flip the plate and pan over so that the eggs settle back into the pan. Or you can finish cooking them in an ovenproof skillet, in a 375ºF oven, for 3 to 5 minutes (like a frittata).
